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. 

I’m proud to represent you in State Parliament, and I’ll continue to push for changes that make a real difference to the lives of people in our region –  better access to healthcare, housing people can actually afford and urgent action on climate change.

What I’m fighting for

“It’s time Western Victoria had 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.

While working as a GP, I spent time working with the 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.

Incredible news! So exciting that @samantharatnam is going to be the @victoriangreens candidate for Wills in the federal election. 

It’s been an extraordinary privilege to work alongside Samantha in the Victorian State Parliament, where she has shown courageous and compassionate leadership. She is someone who walks the talk, and I can’t wait to see her continue fighting for the people of Wills - and all of us - in the Federal Parliament. 

To help her get there, join the campaign www.greensforwills.com

The 2022 floods were an unnatural disaster. The Greens will fight to prevent the disasters we can still avoid and prepare for the ones we can't. #floods #thegreens #climateaction #echuca

A healthy river is essential for healthy communities, and for all the other species that depend on our waterways. The Greens understand that rural people live with, not against, the environment. We will do all that we can to restore the mighty Murray-Darling, and revitalise farming communities throughout the basin. #waterislife #murrayriver #echuca #yortayorta #thegreens

3 million people depend on the Murray-Darling for water. Even more people depend on this river system for food. Freshwater is vital to our food security, now and into the future. Vic Labor has refused to take the health of our waterways seriously, relying on unproved technical quick fixes instead of committing to the long term recovery of our rivers and their ecosystems. I'm heading to Echuca tomorrow, where I look forward to meeting with river communities and hearing their concerns. #waterislife #rivers #thegreens

How can we future proof our built environment to better prepare for the impacts of an overheated planet? The Greens-initiated Inquiry into Climate Resilience is accepting submissions until May 1. Rural and regional voices are VITAL for this inquiry. Let the Victorian Labor government know what our communities need as we travel into further climate impacts. #linkinbio

Live music - what's not to love? The range of music we can see in Geelong, Ballarat and across Western Victoria is phenomenal. We have so much artistry and talent in our communities. But insurance companies are making it impossible for live music venues to stay open. The Greens have a plan to help save live music. Will you sign on to keep our venues open? #linkinbio

Water is life. Protecting rivers as living entities is the way of the future. Healthy waterways are essential for human and ecological health. The conflict imagined by Vic Labor between land users and restoring rivers does not exist - future oriented water management will benefit everyone. I'm looking forward to visiting the Murray next week, when parliament sits in Echuca. And I will keep fighting to keep Victoria's rivers alive.

It's flooding again, and we know these deluges are due to global heating. What can we do to prepare for further climate impacts? Even more importantly, what can we do to make our planet cool again? Join me in the Greens to find out: https://sarahmansfield.org.au/getinvolved-signup/
