Sophie Torney is the Green light community independent standing in Kew She is an excellent first choice for action on climate and integrity in politics. Her support from Climate 200 indicates her potential to play a positive role in holding the government to account from the cross bench if the good people of Kew elect her to the Victorian parliament.
My husband, Tony, and I have lived in Kew for twenty-three years and have raised three children here. I love working in, and for, this community. I’ve led school parents’ associations, managed junior football teams, and supported newly arrived refugees.
The new independent voices in Canberra have demonstrated an exciting new era in politics and now in Kew we can do the same: to raise the standard of leadership and debate, enable individual voices, deliver evidence based policy and secure freedom of representation without the constriction of party politics.
Now is the time for us to push ahead for what our community wants: a fresh start with integrity, working for a stronger economy and real progress on climate action.
