Green Party List features new female faces

by frog

Some notable new women feature well up the Greens list rankings for the November election.

The retirement of Jeanette Fitzsimons and Sue Bradford and the pending retirement of Sue Kedgley has made room for the very capable Cantabrian Eugenie Sage, the wonderful Wellingtonian Jan Logie and the accomplished Aucklander Denise Roche.

Of course, the inimitable Keith Locke has also announced his retirement at this election and the highest ranked new male face is the tireless environmental champion Steffan Browning.

Thus, the 2011 list completes the move to a second generation of Green MPs and as Metiria Turei noted:

It’s been a calm and organised evolution … (the Party is) driven by big ideas which endure rather than just big personalities which can come and go.

Eugenie Sage is a former regional councillor, while Jan Logie represented the Greens well in the recent Mana by-election. Denise Roche is another experienced local body politician while Steffan Browning has worked for many years promoting the organics sector and a GE-free NZ.

The list also includes a rising crop of younger candidates, led by recent Young Greens co-convenor and Lower Hutt candidate Holly Walker, Mt Roskill candidate Julie Genter, and Aaryn Barlow who will stand in Nelson.

The Green Party has ranked 30 candidates for the general election and has an additional 14 candidates currently confirmed to contest the party vote in November with more to come soon.
