Richard Frankland Singer/songwriter, author, film maker; Field Officer, Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody
My name is Richard Frankland and I am a Gunditjmara man.
I write in relation to Ms Alex Bhathal, whom I have had the pleasure of knowing for a period over a decade. In that time I have had the great opportunity to witness her commitment and dedication in community development. She has been an active and passionate member of the Greens for many years, representing the party in many different forums at many different levels.
One of the many things I admire about Alex is her ability to be intimately aware of many complex issues. I have had the pleasure of having long discussions with Alex about matters that range from the complex Indigenous Australian Issues, human rights issues to issues of Nuclear waste concerns. I am pleased to say that in every discussion I have had with her, she not only lent a compassionate ear, but also gave sound advice.
I am not a member of the Greens, but I wholeheartedly endorse and support Alex and her endeavours to become the next Greens Senator for Victoria.
I say this not only because of the above reasons, but also because she is a tireless worker, she is honest, she holds the best interest of the community at heart and she knows the machinations of politics.
