Kay Dunne for Wentworth
I am a local resident with a commitment to both the natural and built environments of Wentworth. With a broad education, covering science, social sciences, humanities and creative arts, and a varied work background, I am well placed to relate to our diverse community.
After working as a professional actor in my early years, I took up a role in the NSW public service in human resources, later moving into senior roles in corporate policy and strategy. I have also worked as a scientific officer in the public hospital system, and a high school teacher. More recently, I have been writing fiction. I am also active in Toastmasters International.
As a carer for an older relative, I have a particular interest in the quality of the services available to seniors. I support positive ageing and want to see opportunities for work and valued contributions continue throughout everyone's entire life.
My values align with Sustainable Australia's. I am committed to combating climate change and protecting the marine and land environment of our Harbour and ocean shores; better planning to stop over-development and to preserve the character of our built heritage; achieving affordable housing for first home buyers and renters, and securing jobs by fostering a more diverse economy and reducing the reliance on housing construction.
To achieve these priorities it is important that Australia has a sustainable population policy. This means a population which is the right size for the carrying capacity of this arid, fragile continent, and our ability to provide a good life for all our people.
I ask for your number 1 vote in this by-election. Thank you for any support you can give.
