Monaro 2023 - Sustainable Australia Party

Legislative Assembly (Lower House)

Monaro candidate - James Holgate

James lives in Queanbeyan and was born and raised in Cooma NSW. He has studied and followed politics in Australia at all levels as well as overseas during an extensive international career while living and working in a number of countries.  He became interested in the Sustainable Australia Party while campaigning as an independent candidate for the federal seat of Eden-Monaro, as the policies and values align with his own.                                                   

Having grown up and lived in the Monaro region, James returned to the area he loves after many years living and working in Asia, the Pacific and the Americas.  He loves the natural environment of the Monaro region and enjoys the range of outdoor activities available locally, from the snow to the sea.  He loves the traditional and diverse cultural richness unique to this region and wants to ensure that we fulfil our primary moral responsibility to pass on an economically, environmentally and socially sustainable Australia to future generations.
