Greens’ Candidates for Newcastle and Wallsend
Newcastle – Charlotte McCabe
I’m Charlotte McCabe, your Greens candidate for the State Seat of Newcastle. I’m a mother of two daughters, a primary school teacher and community organizer.
I’m proud to represent the Greens at this critical time. I believe the Greens four pillars of: Social Justice; Peace and Non-Violence; Ecological Sustainability; and Grassroots Democracy; are exactly what we need right now.
We urgently need to reclaim our democracy to demand that decisions are made for all of us. We are such a wealthy county, but, for so many people owning a home is completely impossible, going to university means years of debt, wages are flat lining and casualisation is on the rise in most work places.
Climate change is already here. We need to elect people who will act to reduce emissions while planning for the transition of workers who will need to find new jobs.
The Greens have plans to address all these issues.
I’m really looking forward to meeting you and hearing what you vision is for Newcastle. I’ll see you soon.
Wallsend – Sinead Francis-Coan
I’m running for the seat of Wallsend to make a difference and stand up for my community. Together, we can ensure that we protect our people and our planet.
I’m a proud Novocastrian who grew up in Jesmond and studied tourism at the University of Newcastle. The people of Wallsend are too often forgotten by the NSW Government and deserve someone who will make this electorate a priority.
I’ve been an active member of our community for most of my life, advocating for our environment, Indigenous rights, women’s rights, workers’ rights and refugee rights across a wide range of community groups.
Wallsend and Newcastle need a strong opposition to the major parties, to ensure our MPs are held to account and our government is listening. I’m standing with the people who have had enough of business as usual. Let’s send a message to parliamentarians who take the public for granted and only govern for the benefit of their mates and corporate donors. It doesn’t have to be this way.
Together, we can:
- Tackle climate change by rapidly transitioning to publicly owned renewable energy
- Ensure everyone has a home
- Create a world where women and children are free from violence
- Improve infrastructure in Wallsend through support for sustainable tourism
I’ll represent our community’s values in parliament and hold the major parties to account. Together we can create a fairer and cleaner future for all of us.
