TONY Johnson, a member of the Coffs Coast Climate Action Group, wants all Coffs Coast voters to understand that the issue of climate change is vital across the electorate, particularly with most residents living in a coastal community.

“The recent Declaration of a Climate Emergency by our City Council highlights the importance of the impact of climate on where we live, where we play and where we shop,” Mr Johnson said.

To assist voters to be better informed, the Coffs Coast Climate Action Group will hold a Candidates’ Forum starting at 6.30pm, in the main hall of the Cavanbah Centre, 191 Harbour Drive, on Friday, March 10.

The community will have the opportunity to pose questions to the sitting member Gurmesh Singh (Nationals), Tony Judge (Labor), Sally Townley (Independent), Timothy Nott (the Greens) and Kellie Pearce (Animal Justice Party).

“These forums have proven very popular in the past, outlining policies straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak,” Mr Johnson said, urging as many people as possible to attend.
