Linda Eisler was a Greens Councillor on Canterbury Council from 2008 till 2017. She did not become part of the amalgamated council’s advisory panels, as she believes the community has not been adequately consulted on the amalgamation. However, she has continued to represent the community with the new administration and has liaised successfully.

She has always demonstrated honesty and has been outspoken in her representation of residents and community groups. She is reliable and fearless in her commitment to her constituents.

 

While on council she has consulted widely from her participation in a large number of working groups like disability, multicultural, floodplains management. She established the Environment and Sustainability Working Group. Amongst her achievements was the establishment of a regional energy study; developing the Interfaith Talks; chairing the GreenWay.
Linda believes that the community needs to understand and have a say in what Canterbury-Bankstown looks like and how it develops in the future. Greenspace and public facilities like schools and good public transport are vital to a healthy community. So is reasonable and sustainable development.

Emmet is a lifelong resident of Roselands Ward in the newly created Canterbury-Bankstown Council and works in retail . Emmet is 23 and believes young people and all residents should have a say in their local  community.

Commuting to work five days a week by train, Emmet is acutely aware of what is at stake with the State Government’s plans to rip up and privatise the Bankstown line. The Greens will fight every step of the way to Keep the Bankstown Line Public.

Passionate about the right for everyone to live in decent and affordable homes with adequate access to community amenities and infrastructure, Emmet and the Greens will put planning for people ahead of developer profits.

Growing up, Emmet was involved in local sporting clubs and so understands the importance of local parklands and sporting fields. It is vital that access to these spaces for relaxation and recreation is ensured.

Lakemba is a wonderful community and it was Councillor Eisler’s great pleasure to congratulate them on their first anniversary of Lakemba Community Markets.The Community Centre has done a fabulous job getting these markets happening and Canterbury Council has been very supportive. They are on from 11am on the first Saturday of the month. 7th May is the next one.
It was wonderful for Cr Eisler to visit the community gardens too, as she

had helped get the seeding money, and, sat on the committee that determined its design. It’s looking terrific.

Canterbury Council held an Interfaith event at Punchbowl Community Centre.

The topic was How Does Faith Empower Women? We had male and female speakers from Christian and Muslim faiths. It was a fascinating discussion and most illuminating. I hope everyone goes to our next Interfaith talk. It will be on spirituality of Aborigines and Buddhists. All the talks emphases the similarities and discuss differences.
