Hi! I’m Sue (she/her), and I’ve been farming spray-free produce and pasture-raised animals in Tremont for 8 years now. My decision to leave a university career and get my hands dirty was the result of a belief that we can do better with our food systems and the environments they affect. I’ve always believed that if I have ideas about how to improve something I have an obligation to try and make it happen. That’s why I’m running for the Green Party in the 2021 election.
I care a lot about the environment, but I also know that if we’re going to make some meaningful changes we have to empower people to get on board. The environment can’t be a priority if we can’t put food on the table, find the healthcare we need, or figure out how to keep our small businesses afloat.
If we take care of people we’ll inadvertently take care of the planet.
I’m not a tree-hugging hippy, and I’m not a politician. I’m just a small farmer with some creative ideas about how we can make the world a better place for people and this spinning piece of dirt and ice we call home. I’m your Green candidate for Kings West and I hope that we’ll have the opportunity to put my ideas in action together!
