Progressive champion

Clover Moore is the first woman popularly elected Lord Mayor of Sydney and a champion for progressive policies.

As Lord Mayor, Clover has led the development and implementation of the City of Sydney’s internationally renowned long term plan - Sustainable Sydney 2030. The City is on track to meet ambitious targets to reduce greenhouse emissions and secure Sydney’s future as one of the world’s top green liveable and creative cities.

She pioneered a grassroots approach to politics, effectively side-stepping the traditional big political party way of looking at the world. By actively engaging with the community at a personal level, by listening to her constituents, and by working with integrity to represent the community’s interests in Town Hall, she has built strong community alliances to deliver substantial progressive reform.

Under her leadership, the City of Sydney has developed a global reputation for delivering award winning facilities, protecting open space, promoting design excellence, delivering new transport options, championing sustainability, supporting and encouraging creativity and initiating progressive solutions to complex city social problems.

Clover remains close to and part of the community she represents. She is fiercely independent, highly principled, and passionate about the city’s potential.
