In NSW, John remains the greatest political and parliamentary friend of public education since Henry Parkes. His tireless campaigning for TAFE and public schools leaves a legacy of inspiration and determination that we all carry forward.
A brilliant electrical engineer and Berkeley scholar whose doctoral thesis is still relied upon today in the field of power distribution, John showed us the way to a NSW powered 100% by renewable energy; he also led many campaigns for the Greens to end cruel treatment of animals in gambling, racing, "entertainment" and intensive factory farming.
Thanks to photographer Tony Grant, many Glen Innes locals now have these priceless memories of campaigning with John to save TAFE -- a campaign that I am proud to continue at rallies and forums throughout New England and NSW.
