It is with much difficulty and regret that I make the decision today not to preselect to be the Greens candidate for the seat of Moreton at the next federal election, despite it being a love and passion of mine to do so.
With so much up in the air with regards to personal priorities over the next 12-18 months, I cannot commit the time and energy it would involve and that it deserves.
After two goes in a row at running as the Greens candidate in Moreton (2010 and 2013) I realise this will disappoint many in my local branch and the community, but no more than how I am feeling.
Here’s to finding someone fabulous to run in Moreton! I will help with the campaign as much as possible locally and also help get our awesome Queensland Greens Senator Larissa Waters re-elected.
Take care and much love to you and yours.
