Justin Alick is the Greens candidate in this election. Justin is a local who has a career focused on overseas aid and sustainable development. He has a bachelor degree in political and international studies and post-graduate qualifications in development planning and public policy. We know he will do a fantastic job representing this community. Here are a few words from Justin:
“I have a passion for social justice, a love of the environment, a strong interest in economics, and a respect for the diversity of our community.”
“I moved to Sydney after working in Southeast Asia to fight poverty and climate change. I fell in love with Bennelong’s bushland, heritage and community spirit.”
·“We all know the Government has been taking us in the wrong direction. Let’s have an Australia that enables everyone to achieve their full potential and places decency, humanity and reason at the heart of all things.”
“This election will be an opportunity for locals to move beyond the failed promise and dismal politics of the Turnbull government and choose a brighter future.”
The Greens will work with this community to understand what they want from their representatives. We have a strong vision for the future and will work with everyone to make that happen! To read more about our core platforms in this election, follow this link to read all about what we stand for.
