James Hansen

Candidate for Aspley

I’m an environmental scientist and urban planner, and I run a garden landscape business in north Brisbane. I’ve also been leading a volunteer bushcare restoration project on Cabbage Tree Creek for 10 years.

As the Greens candidate for Aspley, I’m keen to ensure government decisions are made in the interests of the community and for the wellbeing of future generations.

I was prompted to join the Greens and stand as their candidate because I have seen the destruction of our environment by the policies of the State’s two major parties.

As a long-term resident in the Aspley electorate and after working for Brisbane City Council for more than 10 years, I’m very aware of the issues facing our neighbourhoods.

With proper consultation and collaboration with our communities, the Queensland Parliament can create positive outcomes across Queensland.

Right now I’m fighting alongside my neighbours to save the state land of the former QUT campus so that we can establish a new park in Carseldine.

I will be a fierce advocate for investment in public transport on the northside, especially when it comes to fast tracking the busway to Aspley and extending it north to take pressure off the Bruce Highway.

I’m proud to stand for the Greens in Aspley in this upcoming State election.
