Message from Janet Cavanaugh

Mining and its threats to the Clarence’s water and food security are the key issue in this by-election. We have antimony mining proposed in the catchment of the Coffs-Clarence water supply and coal seam gas operations expanding throughout the area.

I love this region: my connections to it go back 5 generations. I want to see Clarence develop and grow, but mining is not the answer, especially when it threatens our rivers and the industries they support: farming, fishing and tourism.

The Greens’ priorities in the Clarence are long-term investment in education, health and transport services, and creation of local jobs for our youth. I want to expand and improve the quality of tertiary education in the area, to improve transport options to jobs and services, and will fight to keep public sector jobs in our towns.

Living in the Richmond Valley part of the electorate for nearly 20 years while working in Grafton, has given me a broad knowledge of the main local government areas in Clarence.

I hold degrees in engineering, natural resources and environmental management. By working in the public sector since 1992, I have extensive experience in the operation of Government. 

In the by-election, you can vote: to protect our land and water from mining; for honesty and integrity in politics; for local jobs; and for improved services.

You won’t change the government but you can Vote 1 for me BEFORE another candidate and send a strong message to the current Liberal/National Government.
