Labor’s Parsia Abedini (pictured) says key issues facing the community include climate change and cost of living.
Passionate about the environment, he will also campaign to protect flora and fauna, specifically koalas and other native fauna in Wahroonga’s bushlands.
“I want a better future that includes protecting and healing our environment and revitalising education. Having lived all my life in Wahroonga and North Turramurra, I am acutely aware of the issues confronting our community and particularly my generation,” he said.
“I am prepared to work tirelessly for a fresh start and better future for all.
“I will bring about a voice to all those whose lives will be particularly impacted by decisions made by the government over the next four years,” he said.
“I will happily work with a Minns Labor government to deliver real action to combat climate change and protect our unique environment and the native animals it sustains.
“Recognising the respect which teachers and other essential workers deserve, I will be their advocate in helping deliver better educational outcomes for our children, better health care and better resourced emergency services.”
