SMALL business owner Lee-Anne Miles is the Australian Greens candidate for the Federal seat of Pearce.

Ms Miles said she would be campaigning for support for small businesses, equitable tax, innovation and local manufacturing.

“I recognise the need for compassionate and self-sustaining support for all people living in Australia with the focus on helping people rise out of poverty and reducing the gap between the rich and the poor,” she said.

“As a small business owner and former single parent I will draw upon my wealth of personal experiences and knowledge to create a better understanding of local, State and Federal issues.”

Liberal Party member Christian Porter has held Pearce since 2013.

Labor’s candidate for the July 2 election is Thomas French.

Voters have until Monday, May 23 to enrol.
