DAVID NEWMAN is standing as a candidate for election to the NSW Legislative Council on 23 rd March 2019, as a representative of the Voluntary Euthanasia Party (NSW).
David has worked as a social worker for many years; as a therapist in private practice and mental health, and as a teacher of therapists and community workers. Although residing in Sydney he is an honorary clinical fellow at Melbourne University Faculty of Medicine Dentistry and Health Sciences.
He is passionate about dignity, choice, inclusion and kindness being offered to those who are dying. He has seen such conditions unavailable to people he cares about when they have wanted the option of voluntary euthanasia and so his passion now burns brighter. This is why he is standing as a candidate in the upcoming NSW Legislative Council.
