Webster, Patricia

  • Occupation Welfare worker


Patricia Webster was a once only candidate, motivated by her belief that the drug problem was not being properly addressed. She contested the 1988 New South Wales Legislative Assembly election for Balmain as an Independent candidate. She decided to run because she believed none of the candidates addressed the problems of drug trafficking. Patricia Webster believed that a drug rehabilitation centre should be established as an alternative to prison; she was in favour of NSW becoming a nuclear free state; she opposed development of harbour foreshores and was in favour of a second Sydney airport to reduce air traffic over Balmain.
