Steph Hodgins-May

Candidate for Macnamara (prev. Melbourne Ports)

Hi, I’m Steph and I’m your Greens candidate for Macnamara.


When I ran as the Greens candidate for Macnamara (formerly Melbourne Ports) in the 2016 election, I achieved a 4.9% swing towards the Greens and came within 477 votes of winning the seat – and becoming the first woman to represent the Greens in the federal House of Representatives.

This time around, I believe we can get across the line.

A dedicated environmental and social justice advocate, small business owner and St Kilda local, I’m seeking to represent the Greens in Macnamara to promote clean energy, safer pathways for refugees, greater investment in public services, and to improve the lives of our residents by addressing issues like housing affordability.

A former planning and environmental lawyer, I have also worked as an advisor to the Australian Mission to the United Nations and as a volunteer lawyer at Environmental Justice Australia. 

The changing climate affects us all, which is why I want to see a sensible transition to a clean energy economy that will ensure sustainable jobs and a safe and healthy living environment.

Will you join me in building a future for all of us – not just the privileged few?
