Your Local Left Team In Forde

TERRY GOBERT

I've been in the Party for 18 years and I have already been a previous state conference Proxy Delegate here in Forde, where I voted to support the rights of rank-and-file branch members in preselections. I've campaigned for Evan Moorhead, Brett Raguse, Sean Leader, Des Hardman, Peter Beattie and Melissa McMahon locally and I will support even more party reform, if given the chance. I also strongly intend to support the Party's social justice platform in any opportunity I have.

 

DES HARDMAN

In 2005 I moved into Meadowbrook and took up a position as Team Leader Radiographer and MRI specialist at Logan Hospital. I have been a local member of the Labor Party since 2009. I became politically active in this community, Labor and the Labour movement in 2006.


My involvement has included leadership positions in the local branch and campaigning for State and Federal elections. I am a current state conference delegate and have been Labor’s Federal Candidate for Forde on two occasions.
I fought for fairness, better public health, more opportunity through education and a better quality of life for us all.

 

SEAN LEADER

I know my significant campaign experience, and my dedication to progressive policy will allow me to genuinely represent my fellow Labor Party members.I have been a passionate advocate for marriage equality. I was Rainbow Labor’s National Co-Convenor when we put marriage equality into the Platform in 2011; and when we made it binding in 2015. I was in the Public Gallery the day Canberra passed it in 2017.

I am a committed campaigner and have been part of campaign teams during elections for Council, State and Federal elections. I know what strong Labor Governments can achieve when backed by a progressive, well-constructed State Platform, with a strong campaign team behind them. I want the chance to make sure Queensland continues its progressive path.

 

CHRIS MOORE

I have lived in the electorate of Forde for over 5 years, and in this time I have been a very active member of our great Party. I’ve actively campaigned in every election since I joined Labor. I feel passionate about social justice and a fair go for everyone, no matter where you come from. I believe that unionism and collective bargaining is the only way to achieve real change for working people. I believe that the most important thing we can do to make our party better is to give branch members more say, and that’s why I’m asking for your support as State Conference delegate.

 

KERRY NIELSEN

I am running as a State Conference delegate as I want to bring a local voice from branch members to conference. I am committed to doing my utmost to bring about positive, progressive change.

 

GEORGIA STANTON

Having volunteered on the ground in election campaigns, I am now thrilled to put my name forward as a state conference delegate. As a woman, and a person with lived experience of disability and mental illness, it's been inspiring to see people like me finding their voices within our great party over the past couple of years. With your support, I could represent you and the people of Forde with my vote on state conference floor.

Queensland Labor is moving in a fantastic direction, having delivered great reforms – and that comes through in the feedback I have received from voters and Labor supporters in Forde.

The community is with us, and I want to vote at state conference for our hard-won (majority!) Labor government to govern with true, progressive Labor values and implement policies based on true, progressive Labor ideas.

 

SHARON VALLES

I have been an active ALP member since 1996, when I joined in Victoria. I moved to Queensland in 2001 and in 2008, I founded the Coomera Branch and held positions of President and Secretary. I've been proud to serve as a State Conference delegate speaking up on the issues that matter most to branch members in Forde. I've supported more local campaigns than I can count but my greatest passion is building, growing and nurturing strong and active branches. That's why I'm standing as part of the Local Left Team. Supporting branch members to have the greatest possible say within our Party is the only way we can we create vibrant, empowered campaigns that put progressive Labor members into government.
