Federal election: retired academic Judith Cullity to contest Stirling for Greens

DOUBLEVIEW resident Judith Cullity is contesting the seat of Stirling in next year’s Federal election.

The retired scientist and academic, and daughter of Vasse Felix winery founder Tom Cullity, will represent The Greens.

Ms Cullity also represented the party in the 2017 and 2013 State elections in the Scarborough electorate.

“Now that I have recently become a grandmother, I feel more urgently than ever the need to do my utmost to ensure we leave a healthy planet for the next generations as well as a future for all,” she said.

“I want to see us building for the future with renewable energy and sustainable urban design not the old style development with skyscrapers and urban sprawl robbing us of amenity, sense of place and our world class native biodiversity while benefiting only the big end of town.”

Asbestos Diseases Society of Australia chief operating officer Melita Markey is Labor’s candidate in Stirling.
