What Kym Chapple says about Heffron
Heffron is diverse and growing rapidly, it’s a vibrant and dynamic place to live, work and play but infrastructure isn’t keeping up with local need with schools, transport and community space under pressure.

The buses and trains in our area are overcrowded and we desperately need upgrades now, not years down the track. But the priority of the Berejiklian government has been privatising transport with projects like Westconnex and knocking down stadiums rather than public transport.

With half the residents of Heffron renting their homes we’ll be working closely with the community to improve renters’ rights and the right to secure, affordable housing that is not being delivered by the current system.

Greens candidate Kym Chapple was joined at her preselection for Heffron by our dynamic female representatives: Senator Mehreen Faruqi, State upper house candidate Abigail Boyd, Randwick Councillor Lindsay Shurey, Randwick Councillor Philipa Veitch and Newtown MP Jenny Leong.

Background on Kym Chapple
Kym is a lawyer, activist and policy professional with extensive experience in campaigning for our communities and for the planet.

As the mother of two young children Kym is concerned about the shortage of parkland and open space for children to play in safely, as well as access to quality public education in the area.

Kym will be campaigning on the link between public green spaces and clean air with broader environmental issues and campaigns.

The Greens are planning a grassroots mobilisation in the electorate of Heffron, which contains voting booths recording some of the strongest Greens votes in the country, and borders the State seat of Heffron, held by Greens MP Jenny Leong.
