With federal politics imploding and the Liberal party betraying our collective future to personal ambition and narrow political posturing, the Greens are pleased to announce popular local councillor and First Nations advocate Dominic Wy Kanak as our candidate for Wentworth.

Deputy Mayor Wy Kanak, who lives in Bondi, is the most popular local councillor on Waverley Council.

“It’s time for a fresh start for Wentworth. I know residents here care about action on climate change, Aboriginal justice and tackling the excessive power corporate interests have on national policy.

“While coal and fossil fuel companies call the shots in federal parliament, we are in the grip of a terrible drought and unprecedented mid-winter bushfires. The Greens, and residents in Wentworth, know these things are connected.

“Our cities are unaffordable, our public schools are over flowing, public transport is in meltdown and politics needs to address these issues, not personal vanities. Wentworth deserves better.

“People are sick of the circus that calls itself the Federal Parliament. I want to work every day to address the real needs of our community and our country.

“The Greens stand for a fairer Australia, for protecting our future and fixing the rigged political system that only seems to serve the interests of big business and the politicians they pay,” Cr Wy Kanak said.
