MY STORY

I love Melbourne and our shared commitment to diversity and fairness. As a Kensington local, I want to keep Melbourne liveable.

Growing up in country Victoria, it was impossible not to form a strong bond with our environment.

I trained as a scientist and have worked hard for social justice all my adult life.

I know how important it is to take action on climate change. Before becoming an MP, I was the CEO of a national climate change non-profit organisation.

‘Now I'm fighting for a clean economy and a more caring society in the Victorian Parliament. With Melbourne's federal representative, Adam Bandt and local councillors, Melbourne is leading the country in standing up for the environment, a liveable city and a fair society.’

Supporters like you are the reason we have such strong representation and you play a crucial role in helping us create change. Please keep in touch as we work together for a cleaner, fairer Melbourne.

It’s an honour to serve you and the people of Melbourne.

Signed Ellen Sandell
