Earl James

State Candidate for Ripon

Hi, I'm Earl James

As a teacher and unionist, I understand the urgency needed to address the rising cost of living and lack of affordable housing in our area that has been ignored by the major parties.

As your Greens representative, I will fight for better conditions and protections for renters, more affordable housing, and for new housing developments in our area to be planned with appropriate health and public transport infrastructure and facilities to service them.

Both major parties are ignoring the impact of forest clearing. With natural disasters increasing in frequency and impact, the time is now to push the government further and faster on the climate emergency. We need to tackle the climate crisis by replacing coal and gas with 100% renewable energy by 2030.

Your vote is powerful. Together, we can protect our region, and build a sustainable and prosperous future for us all.
