The Central Coast New Independents have announced the inclusion of Ms Ferran Thornycroft as the second member of the team running in the Gosford West Ward in the September 9 Council election.
Ms Thornycroft will be number two on the ticket, running with Mr Gary Chestnut. Ms Thornycroft said: “I joined the Central Coast New Independents as I believe there is a need for young people’s voices to be heard and for young people to be actively involved in the decision-making process on the Coast.”
She has lived on the Central Coast since she was a year old and is currently studying a double degree at the University of Sydney. She helps run a state-wide youth advocacy program and is passionate about giving a voice to young people. Team leader Mr Gary Chestnut said: “Ferran brings to our team her enthusiasm and determination that to build a community. “It is essential that all members of the community know that they can be heard and their opinions do matter.
“Ferran complements both Lisa Wriley and Jean MacLeod’s lifelong commitments of being actively involved in various community organisations. “Our team is aimed towards providing an open and transparent Council where decisions should be based upon community consultation; sustainable development; protection of the environment and good quality infrastructure across the Coast.”
