THE NSW Greens are still weighing up their options as they consider running a candidate in the battle for Bathurst at next month's state election.
Nominations for the March 23 election officially open on Monday and close on Wednesday, March 6.
Former Bathurst deputy mayor Tracey Carpenter ran for The Greens in 2015, securing around 10 per cent of the vote, but John Fry, the only Greens member currently on council, said the party had not yet decided if it would field a candidate this year.
He said he had considered running but saw Bathurst as a "pretty solid" conservative electorate.
"Discussions are continuing and we haven't ruled anything in or out at this stage," Cr Fry said.
"But we will have to make our minds up very soon."
So far only Paul Toole (Nationals), Beau Riley (Labor) and Brenden May (Shooters, Fishers and Farmers) have confirmed they would contest the election in Bathurst.
