Our Yerrabi Candidates

  • Alistair Coe

    Alistair is a true Canberran: he was born at the Royal Canberra Hospital and went to primary and secondary school in Tuggeranong and Belconnen. He then completed a Bachelor of Commerce at the Australian National University. Aside from a year spent in the United Kingdom and the United States, Alistair has spent his whole life in Canberra and takes great pride in our national capital.

  • Amanda Lynch

    Amanda Lynch loves the beauty and lifestyle that this wonderful city has to offer but knows we can do much better. Dramatically increasing rates, chaotic and unplanned road works, and under resourced hospitals have left residents of North Canberra and Gungahlin considerably worse off. Amanda has personally experienced our failing health system, being stranded on hospital waiting lists and ultimately referred to country NSW to receive necessary but everyday health services. With a lifetime of experience in small business, government and local community groups, Amanda is seeking your support to rectify these problems and to represent Yerrabi as your elected representative.

  • James Milligan

    James Milligan, publisher and business owner believes Canberra’s North will be of great political focus this October, and has been advocating for the Gungahlin region for many years. James’ strong personal values were founded in his upbringing, particularly a strong belief in the individual and the importance of families. A long term Gungahlin resident, James has seen first-hand the lack of proper planning, inadequate infrastructure, sub-standard roads, struggling health care facilities, and limited local employment opportunities. Canberrans need better representation so key projects are prioritised, planned and completed on time. James will be in a position to champion these issues.

  • Justin States

    A lawyer and resident of Forde, Justin came to Canberra in 1992 having won a Graduate position in the Department of Defence. After completing an Honours degree in Psychology at the University of Western Australia, he graduated from ANU with a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree, which included study on exchange in the USA at the University of Alabama School of Law, and a Masters of Business Administration degree. Justin was a Federal Public Servant in the Departments of Defence, Industry and Foreign Affairs & Trade. He later served as an adviser to the Hon Julie Bishop MP and to the Hon Philip Ruddock MP where he learned the importance of putting your local constituents first; never forgetting that serving your electorate to the upmost of your ability is your highest calling. Justin currently works in the private sector providing policy and legal services. He understands the challenges that people face, and the way that law and government policies impact on people directly. Justin has a strong interest and activity in local issues. As an MLA for Yerrabi his vision is for a place with leading edge facilities, where people go to run dynamic small businesses and to be entertained – a place that people want to visit, not just to reside in.

  • Jacob Vadakkedathu

    Vadakkedathu has been a Canberra resident for 18 years. He lives in Nicholls with his wife Beenu and two children Johan and Carol. He has a masters in business administration from the University of Canberra and is a public servant working for the federal Department of Finance and has worked for a bank and run small businesses, experience that has made him very aware of the challenges faced by working families and small business owners. Vadakkedathu is passionate about community engagement and has been a volunteer for the Red Cross and Cancer Council, and is involved in the Gungahlin Community Council and the Gungahlin United Football Club. He believes in fairness and is committed to listen to people about their concerns and needs to support them in whatever way he can.
