Lismore Council needs to further develop their arts and cultural policy.
As a Council, it is essential that we identify, protect and promote important cultural sites.
We need to protect our beautiful environment wherever possible.
We also need to restore community faith within the Council by operating with as much transparency as possible.
We need to simplify and encourage development opportunities, especially those which ease housing issues.

We need a Council that actively pursues, consults, encourages and considers community feedback and values.
We need a Council that actively builds, promotes and connects our community at a grassroots level.
We need a Council that focuses on effectively delivering Core Services (Civil infrastructure, water, waste management and sewerage).
My name’s Sally Flannery and I’m a local Lismore woman passionate about our community. I adore our town and want to be a voice for positive change to make it a better place to live for myself and for my community.
I’m 27 and manage a local Design agency in Lismore CBD. My professional experience is in business management, development and design.
Personally, I love being involved within our community in a positive way. I run a local community Facebook group called “Support Lismore Small Business” which was born from necessity to connect our community to the business community during Covid. In the last year, I’ve led countless community projects that you can read about here. Community activism and voluntary work is beautiful, but I’d like a seat at the table so that my I can continue to be a positive voice for our community from within our Council.
I am passionate about building community in a positive, inclusive way and feel I would provide a unique perspective to Lismore City Council. In my professional experience, I work largely on process and procedural efficiency whilst managing a large portfolio of clients. I am passionate about utilising technology to automate and simplify processes while identifying areas of revenue loss or those with room for improvement.
I believe my professional experience as well as my life experience and passion for our community would be a great asset for Lismore City Council. I’m highly empathetic, hard working and community centric and I think we can use more Councillors with those values representing our community.
To put it super simply – I f*cking love Lismore.
I hope you’ll consider voting for me in this upcoming September election!
