Liz Innes has used WIN TV news to announce that she will not be standing in the September 2021 Local Government elections. Filmed on the foreshore of Batemans Bay the Ms Innes cited the need to spend more time with her family, riding horses and gardening listed among her achievements boosting the tourist industry, arts in the Eurobodalla and the new oyster hatchery located at the Moruya Airport. Liz told Samara Gardner how she led the community during the bushfires and that the bushfires have impacted her. "The bushfires did impact my family and myself personally but it has been an honour to be part of an incredible community that has been through so much and is now well on the road to recovery but it's time now for me also to take time for my own recovery," Ms Innes told WIN News. "What's next for me is I'm going to take some much needed time to be with my family and my friends," Ms Innes said. "I'm going to get back into the gardening that I love so very much, get back on a horse because that's been a lifelong passion of mine, so they're the things, I'm going to spend some Liz time."
