A Branch of the NSW Greens

Paterson campaign under way

Port Stephens Greens have joined with members in Maitland and Cessnock to pre-select John Brown as our candidate for Paterson in the forthcoming federal election.

John kicked off the campaign at a meeting in Raymond Terrace on 8 April with Senator Lee Rhiannon, who is up for re-election, our number 2 Senate candidate (and Newcastle Councillor) Michael Osborne, and Cessnock Councillor James Ryan.


The Greens have been vocal on the Williamtown contamination crisis, in support of the hundreds of families whose lives have been disrupted. The government has refused to act on many of the recommendations of the Senate Inquiry initiated by Senator Rhiannon, and Labor is refusing to commit to do any better if elected.
