I’m avoiding making personal comment on the worth of particular candidates or using my internal knowledge within the NSW Greens to comment on the Senate preselection, so I’m just restricting myself to posting information easily available on the internet.
In addition to NSW Greens MLC Lee Rhiannon’s announcement that she would resign from the Legislative Council to run for the Senate, another prominent Greens member has announced she is running.
Cate Faehrmann, Executive Director of the Nature Conservation Council and former Greens staffer and candidate, has announced she will stand in the preselection. The announcement appears at the bottom of a page on her blog, where she outlines her history with the Greens for those who may only know her from her NCC role.
Nominations close in just over two weeks.
