Summary

Kate Botting was a once only candidate who ran for the Australian Democrats in the seat of Bankstown at the 1999 New South Wales Legislative Assembly elections.

Details

Kate Botting was born in New Zealand and came to Australia in 1983. She has spent most of her working life in Sydney as the nurse for the Water Board, based in Liverpool, and travelling all over south western Sydney with preventative health, quit smoking and rehabilitation programs.

Conscious of the difficulties facing migrants and workers in the area, Kate campaigned for better transport infrastructure, more money for health and education and an anti drug strategy which included safe injecting rooms and methadone programs.

She is married with a young son.
