I’ve known Alex for some 6 years, most recently working alongside her in her role as National Climate Campaigner.  Alex has always greatly impressed me with her energy, hard work and easy ability to work well within a team.  She engages incredibly well with diverse communities and, in numerous campaigns, has demonstrated a rare capacity to build support for Greens values amongst folk not normally seen as supporters.

Alex has very strong public speaking and presentation skills, essential in a lead Senate candidate.  She speaks with passion, in a manner that resonates with the audience, leaving them considering Greens perspectives.  As National Climate Campaigner, she reached out to a diverse range of communities and folk with differing opinions.

Alex is an articulate, energetic, seasoned campaigner with a track record, as evidenced in Batman, of successfully shifting community attitudes towards the Greens.  She is a strategic thinker, and excels at working around problems, helping others and drawing on her diverse networks to create opportunities.

Alex is an outstanding choice for lead Senate candidate; she’d make huge contributions as our next Senator for Victoria.  I know that she will work hard to represent us in a way that will make us proud.
