The Greens tonight chose their candidate to run for the Bradfield by-election later this year. The Greens have chosen Susie Gemmell, who was the Greens candidate for Bradfield at the 2007 federal election and the overlapping state electorate of Ku-ring-gai at the 2003 and 2007 state elections. Gemmell is an advisor to Greens MLC and Senate candidate Lee Rhiannon. Her media release announcing her candidacy in 2007 said:
In 2004 Susie began working with Greens MP Lee Rhiannon in the NSW Parliament. Prior to this she worked in the IT industry as a software designer, trainer, documentation writer and project manager. She holds a Bachelor of Communications (UTS) and has also worked as a journalist and computer teacher. Susie is currently studying post-graduate Environmental Studies at Macquarie University.
Update 17 September: I posted this a few days ago but took it down when I realised I had posted it before they were planning to announce.
