Rivers SOS member Tim Duddy to stand for Upper Hunter

Tim Duddy has announced his candidacy for the NSW state seat of Upper Hunter. He has been a mainstay of the Caroona Coal Action Group and their lengthy blockade to stop BHP from exploring on Duddy land at Caroona was an inspiration to all of us. 

The CCAG was one of the first groups to support Rivers SOS and they have shown our two “Rivers of Shame” DVDs at their public meetings in Quirindi and Gunnedah.

If mining goes ahead on their Liverpool Plains, both the Mooki and Namoi Rivers (part of the Murray-Darling catchment) will be impacted as their groundwater sources will be drained.

So we will keep our fingers crossed for his stand against George Souris in the election. Any support for Tim would be welcome.

Tim’s statement follows:

I am passionate about bringing fairness back into our community and protecting productive agricultural land and valuable water resources from the largely unchecked expansion of mining in this district.

Restoring the rights of communities and those existing sustainable local industries that have built this region is a priority for me.
