Sarah Mansfield Greens MLC for Western Victoria

I’m proud to be your representative

The needs and challenges facing regional and rural communities have been overlooked for far too long. As the Greens’ first regional MP and as Co-Deputy Leader, I will fight for the changes our communities need.

I’m proud to represent you in State Parliament, and I’m committed to making a real difference to the lives of people in our region, with better access to healthcare, housing people can actually afford and urgent action on climate change.

What I’m fighting for

“Western Victoria now has a strong, Green, representative in State Parliament, fighting for action on climate change and what people in the regions need.”

ABOUT ME

Hi, I'm Sarah

I live in Geelong, on Wadawurrung Country, with my young family.

As a GP, I spent time working with people who were homeless. This experience highlighted the failure of our social and political systems, being lived by people struggling in our communities every day. 

It was what motivated me to serve on local council before having the great privilege of becoming your first Greens State MP.

I hear regularly from constituents who are struggling to make ends meet in Western Victoria. Their stories make it clear that too often, access to housing, affordable food and healthcare is determined by your postcode and income rather than by need. This has to change.

I’m committed to bringing the voices of regional and rural communities to our State Parliament. I’d love to hear what matters most to you and what you want to see change for the better in Western Victoria.

We should not be burning our waste problems. Incineration is incredibly emissions intensive, bad for health and the environment, and undermines the economic incentives for better waste management options. 

For decades state and federal governments have neglected investing in genuinely circular waste economies. Now communities across Victoria - including in Lara in my electorate - are being faced with the prospect of giant incinerators near their homes, schools and workplaces. VIC Labor needs to stop the Lara incinerator. And they need to get off the waste incineration path altogether, invest in sustainable alternatives (that do exist!) - before it’s too late.

🚪 🌳 Great afternoon doorknocking for @emilieflynn.geelong, the @victoriangreens candidate for City of Greater Geelong #kardiniaward 🌳 🚪 

Lots of good chats to people about all sorts of issues - people want big trucks off residential roads due to noise, pollution and safety, pedestrian crossings to the Geelong waterfront, and lower traffic speeds in residential areas for pedestrian and cyclist safety. 🚶🏻‍♀️ 🛴🚲🦼

Want to help get Emilie elected to council in October? We need all hands on deck - have a sign on your fence, letterbox flyers, make phone calls, or join us on a door knock (I promise it’s much more fun than it sounds!). If none of that’s your thing we’ll find something for you to do! Get in touch - link in bio.

Victorian Labor has given the green light to gas extraction near the 12 Apostles. This is a betrayal of all those who wanted to believe that Labor were serious about climate action. The science is clear: we cannot have any more fossil fuel projects if we want any hope of a safe climate.  #nomorecoalandgas #climatescience  #climateemergency #twelveapostles #greatoceanroad #surfcoast
