Your Local Left Team In Longman

JANINE AITKEN

 

I’m an active member of the Labor Women’s Network and currently sit on the executive. I am proud to say that in this term we have managed to create regional Labor Women’s groups. It’s imperative that to continue to grow as a party we must have active regional women. One of my greatest joys since joining the party is being one of the founding members of Labor Enabled. Labor Enabled is a group that advocates for people with a lived experience of disability and/or mental illness and their carers. In 2015, a few years after my diagnosis with Multiple Sclerosis, I was struggling to find what my new life meant. After speaking with fellow Labor members, I knew I had found a home within the Labor Party. I also knew that Labor Enabled would be a sorely needed voice for those who so often go unheard. After all, disability and mental illness affects over a third of the population. We need to have voices at the grass roots level. I would be honoured to be one of your state conference delegates. I am passionate about our area and think we deserve strong voices for our members at state conference.

 

DREW CUTLER

 

I am proud to be running for State Conference delegate as a member of your local Left team, that has been fighting and delivering progressive reforms through State Conference over the post three years. In particular, I was proud to see us develop and deliver changes to the affrimative action rules, which has made Queensland the only state in the country that is led by women at both a Parliament and Party level. we have a proven track record of delivering real reform for the Labor Party, which is why I'm running for State Conference delegate. So we can see real reform continue.

 

TREVOR LEWIS

 

I am seeking your support, to be elected as a state conference Delegate and be a part of our local progressive team. Over the last few years we have made some major progressive change through our party platform at conference and I am very eager to be given the opportunity to continue this important work. It is vital that branch members are able to have a voice at conference, as it is evident that some of the best policy comes from our rank and file members. I am commited to bringing the ideas and passions of my community to forefront of conversation.

 

MICHAEL MCNEILL

 

For my day job, I’m an IT manager for an accounting business so I am intimately aware of the technological transition and digital disruption in the workplace. On a personal level, I am extremely passionate about education and advancing opportunities for all students. As President of the Caboolture-Morayfield Branch, I want to ensure our party embraces a branch structure that opens up our party. I believe that the strength of the Labor Party is in our grassroots activism and democratic processes where every member can help shape the Party. That's why I'm running to be a branch delegate for state conference.

 

ELISE WALL

 

I am a proud Kabi Kabi Aboriginal woman and a Narangba local, having lived in the community for over 15 years. I have worked in child safety and am a lawyer by trade. I have dedicated my professional life to fighting for those who are marginalised or disadvantaged. I joined the Labor Party in 2009 and since then have been committed to ensuring local branch members' voices are heard. I am passionate about social justice, gender equality and workers rights. As your delegate, I will fight for a progressive party platform with these principles at its heart. As a state conference delegate, I will push for a more progressive platform, a more democratic party, and more grassroots Labor campaigning.
