Coral Anderson spent most of her working life in the legal profession as a secretary, working with numerous firms and barristers all over Australia including a Queen’s Counsel in Melbourne. She has also worked in the Aged Care and Real Estate industries whilst at the same time raising her children. Coral moved to Batemans Bay in 2000 after falling in love with the place back in 1993 when she ‘knew’ she would return one day.
Her resume also includes working as a foster carer for disabled children, volunteering with Meals on Wheels, Red Cross, Salvation Army, Grief Support, Community Radio, member of The Compassionate Friends and, more recently, the RSPCA Eurobodalla Volunteer Branch.
She says “I am standing as a candidate for the Animal Justice Party in the State seat of Bega because I believe we have a real chance to bring about changing the lives of not only domestic pets and farmed animals but also our wildlife as well as we humans, for the better. Where there is no voice for the voiceless, let there be one in the corridors of power.
I support any government initiative, policy and/or legislation that aligns with the Animal Justice Party’s core principles of Kindness, Equality, Rationality and Non Violence. I am just like any other member of the community, a mother and grandmother who seeks a better, kinder world for our children and grandchildren. When we know better, we must do better.”
