St George Greens have started their campaign for more representation on the Bayside and Georges River councils.
Greta Werner, who is running for the Rockdale Ward, said all councils need a better balance of representation that reflects the areas diverse communities.
"I want to make sure that the Council finds a better balance between the needs of interest groups and those of local residents, particularly concerning public and open green spaces," she said.
"I will work to deliver solutions for our whole community, for now, and for the future of Bayside."
Peter Strong, who is running for the Mascot ward in Bayside Council, said now was the best time to launch the Greens' campaign.
"Now is the time to embrace the sustainable revolution for all and put people and a safe community before profit and division," he said.
"I will work to improve waste management and energy efficiency and to clean up our environment in the Bayside area."
Peter Sangster, running for Georges River Council, has lived in the St George area his entire life and says he understands residents' concerns.
"I've lived in this area all my life. I know our community is very concerned about Climate Change," he said.
"I will work to implement initiatives to reduce the impacts of council services on carbon emissions and other environmental impacts.
"We have had the two parties for too long. We need you to Vote (1) The Greens for a better future for all of us and our children".
David Shoebridge MLC gave an address via zoom from the central coast, emphasising the strong track record of greens councillors across NSW.
What makes Greens councillors different is that they adhere to the policies that we have developed together, such as those to protect the environment, heritage and the rights of workers," he said.
"They are connected to strong community campaigns like Friends of Gardiner Park and provide support to the community."
Council elections are on September 4.
