Nelson Gilmour says he has “nothing to lose” in his fight for change as the Greens WA candidate for Albany ahead of the 2021 State Election and will take bold action to bring “more integrity” to politics. Mr Gilmour, pictured, was confirmed as the Greens WA candidate for the seat of Albany on Monday, throwing his hat into the ring for the hotly contested seat held by Labor veteran Peter Watson since 2001. A project officer for the WA Forest Alliance, he previously worked in hospitality and the arts. Mr Gilmour is no stranger to the campaign trail, having contested the seat of O’Connor for the Greens at last year’s Federal election, when he finished in fifth place behind One Nation’s Dean Smith. Speaking to the Advertiser this week, Mr Gilmour said Albany deserved better than what it was getting. “If Albany was a milkshake it would be vanilla,” he said. “We keep voting for the same and expecting something different. “I think it is time to be bold and reimagine what our future looks like because now is the time to do it.” Mr Gilmour said if elected, his top priority would be “getting corporate donations out of politics”. “Coal, oil, gas, fossil fuel companies are still giving hundreds of thousands to Labor, Liberal and Nationals and yet we are expecting them to fix the problem,” he said. “It’s just not going to happen.” He said he would be pushing to see Albany run on 100 per cent renewable energy by 2030. He wanted the city to be transformed into a renewable energy manufacturing hub. “I’ve got nothing to lose,” he said. “We need bold action and we are still playing little league.” Mr Gilmour will also campaign for secure jobs in the aged-care sector and better opportunities for young people to stay, live and work in the region. He will be running against Labor Party candidate Rebecca Stephens, Liberal Party candidate Scott Leary, Nationals WA candidate Delma Baesjou and One Nation candidate Michelle Kinsella.
