Cronulla 2023 - Sustainable Australia Party

Legislative Assembly (Lower House)

Cronulla candidate - Richard Moran

Richard and his wife Shirley have lived 39 years in the Sutherland Shire to which Richard was drawn by its beautiful bushland and particularly the magnificent Sydney Redgums. He looks after three gardens where he has made extensive use of local indigenous plants.  He is a firm believer in biodiversity and supporting local flora and fauna. Richard has been greatly concerned by the rapid rise in property prices which has driven overdevelopment in the Shire. The major contributor has been rapid population growth. He is a firm believer that as a consumer society with one of the highest rates of per capita pollution Australia needs to maintain a sustainable level of population. He is particularly angered by the Greens who ride the environmental bandwagon but ignore the impact of population increase.

Richard is now retired but had a successful career in finance and administration. He later worked for the National Parks and Office of Environment & Heritage making considerable savings for those bodies in indirect taxes. His wife Shirley who came from Malaysia 50 years ago has recently retired as a Nurse at Sutherland Hospital where her work in Intensive Care was most highly regarded.
