YADCA President Nigel met with Division 10 candidate Sue Etheridge.

As the Greens candidate for Sunshine Coast Council Division 10, Sue Etheridge declares climate as one of her top priorities.

“The coast has grown and changed over time but still maintains its green edge, thanks to some hard-fought, now threatened, environmental wins,” she said.

She pledges to:

  • Take action on climate change – supporting and encouraging the Sunshine Coast Council to declare a climate emergency.
  • Improve community well-being through more green space, accessible active and public transport and affordable housing.
  • Support community driven change and a more democratic and transparent Council.
  • Ensure residents and industry can access clean energy and utilise low/zero emission technology as we transition to a post carbon economy.
  • Protect the natural environment, including water quality and agricultural land for food security.
  • Support new and existing businesses to grow and thrive.
  • End political donations from big business and the mining industry.

As a Sunshine Coast resident of 37 years, Sue Etheridge believes it’s time for a change, and new people. “I believe that my experience as a small business owner, as well as an active member of the community has given me the experience, knowledge and ability to make a real difference in the Council.”
