Better together

Natasha Ledger

New England

To lead in a progressive, transformative effort to create a sustainable, thriving, healthy and abundant region.  To build  democracy,  education, and collaboration. Stop corruption and promote transparency.

Born in March of 76, exacting 23yrs of Sydney, exacting 23years of country, lends way to a balanced perspective of the political. Grateful for a perfect upbringing nestled in the hills of old Bathurst road, overlooking city lights, now presently in perfect view of Guyra Mountain directly, unending scenery west, planted in rural Uralla.
