Thanks for your support in the Ballina Shire Council Election s


Ballina Greens and our supporters would like to thank  our dynamic group of skilled candidates who put their hand up to serve our community and did so well in each of the three wards:

Ward A – Steve Posselt


At 63, living in Ballina and semi-retired I now have time to offer more to my community. My business and civil engineering career has spanned 45 years but I have made the time for a few adventures. Paddling to Paris, was my biggest but paddling from Brisbane to Adelaide allowed me to observe how my engineering training does, and does not, fit with nature. As a father and grandfather I believe in a happy, fulfilling lifestyle on a healthy planet that provides interesting jobs for all. You can often find me out on the Richmond River, especially in the big outrigger canoes, following my passion for rivers.


 Ward B – Nathan Cooper

Nathan grew up on a large cattle farm and understands the bush.  He will champion appropriate rural dual occupancy to provide dwellings that reflect the growing diversity of our region in exchange for enhancements to the natural environment. The result will be large scale ecosystem repair at no expense to the taxpayer, a jobs boom and affordable housing.

Nathan is an appointed Advisory Panel member for Lismore Community Solar. He will work to match neighbouring shires’ push for 100% renewable energy.

With 26 years of business ownership, post graduate policy development qualifications and a community development history Nathan is ready to serve our community.


Ward C – Gail Mensinga
