Candidate promises to serve the public

THE Coffs Harbour Greens have selected Sandy Beach resident Craig Christie as their candidate for Coffs Harbour in the March 2015 state election.

"Although many months away, this election will certainly present a clear choice for the public," Mr Christie said.

"If you are happy with the practices of pollies looking out for their mates in big business and decision-making behind closed doors, then you should continue to vote for the Nationals. On the other hand, if you want accountable and transparent government and politicians that are truly 'public' servants, then vote Greens."

Mr Christie, who works in IT and has experience as a business and IT consultant, said he believed the election would go beyond state issues and also reflect the public sentiment on the actions and policies of the Federal Government.

"The Greens believe in a fairer society, with education and health care a right for all, not just the wealthy. We strongly support prioritising public health and public education and not viewing them, as the LNP do, as expenses. We view investment in education as an investment in the future that builds a better society and a stronger economy.

"Like many other groups and people in this state, the Greens are concerned with the rush to sell-off our resources and assets for short term profits, with irresponsible mining, for example, a huge danger.

"We will continue to defend our environment from dubious and dangerous practices and also stand firm on our belief that the energy sector should not be privatised."
