Annie Florence is a health professional whose concern with the environment led to her candidature. She ran as an Australian Greens candidate in the New South Wales Legislative Assembly for Bega in 2003.


Annie Florence is a registered nurse with experience in community health, aged care and nursing education. At the time of her campaign she was working as a mental health practitioner with the Southern Area Health Service based in Moruya. She moved to the South Coast of NSW permanently in 2000, but she knew the area well from holidays there over twenty years.

In 2003, Annie was Secretary of the Eurobodalla Greens, and a member of the Greens Committee of Management and State Election Campaign Committee. She was involved in the campaign against the Mogo Charcoal Plant and subsequently helped establish the Non-violence Action Training Program which grew out of the Mogo experience. She also was actively involved in trying to stop the development of a huge Shooters Complex near Tilba.
