You are invited to a Town Hall-style Q&A Forum with new Greens Senator for South Australia Robert Simms.

 Robert is the Australian Greens’ spokesperson for Higher Education, Sexuality and Marriage Equality, and Water and the Murray Darling Basin. At age 31 he is the nation’s youngest Senator and the second youngest member of the Federal Parliament.

Immediately prior to becoming a Senator in September this year, Robert was an Adelaide City Councillor where he was a strong voice for progress, promoting: greener streets, better cycling infrastructure, ethical investment and improved access for people with disabilities.

 This is an exciting opportunity to hear from Robert about the Greens’ positive vision for South Australia.

 Please join us at The Joinery, 111 Franklin Street, Adelaide, on Thursday, 10 December, 5:30pm.

On Tuesday I tendered my resignation from Adelaide City Council following my selection by the members of the South Australian Greens to fill the casual vacancy created by Penny Wright’s resignation from the Federal Senate (photo from press conference above).

It has been an honour to represent the community on Adelaide City Council and I have thoroughly enjoyed my 10 months as Area Councillor.

I look forward to continuing to promote the interests of our beautiful city in he future in my new capacity as Senator for South Australia.

Thank you for all your support on the journey so far!
