To all our South Australian members and supporters...
Update - 9 March 22
Another big week lies ahead in the lead up to the SA state election. Early voting has commenced throughout the state and so too has our online campaign. Elise and Jack have been hard at work to deliver more online content. We also continue our engagement with media and community groups to drum up support and spread the SA Party message.
Our How-to Vote flyers will be available to pick up this weekend from either Brighton or Semaphore (Details below). We’re asking all our members to come along and grab some flyers to letterbox in their neighbourhood and hand out on election day.
Sustainable Australia Party president William Bourke will be at these locations to say hi and support our campaign.
When: Saturday, March 12 9am-5pm
Where: Brighton Beach Esplanade, Bindarra Reserve (adjacent Brighton Surf Lifesaving Club)
When: Sunday, March 13 9am-2pm
Where: Semaphore Foreshore, carpark nearest to Semaphore Steam Train Depot, entrance near corner of Esplanade and South Terrace
Come throughout the day to catch up with candidates, Elise and Jack, and Sustainable Australia Party president, William Bourke. While there, pick up your How-to-Vote flyers for letterboxing in your neighbourhood. Weather permitting, we’ll be doing some letterboxing in the local area.
If you cannot pick up your How-to-Vote flyers this weekend, please ask us to deliver (Adelaide) or post (regional) them to you! Get in touch with us at [email protected].
If you can't find us on the day, phone 0477 427 905.

What have we been up to?
Things have been heating up as we approach election day. In the past weeks of campaigning, we launched our campaign in Glenelg, met with a climate scientist to get policy feedback, and responded to questions and surveys from individuals and community groups. We’re getting our message out there: Protect our environment, stop overdevelopment & stop corruption. With the help of our National Committee Member, Simone Dunsford, we took to Rundle Mall to speak to members of the public and garner voters’ interest. We also posted our first campaign video online and have kept our fingers on the keyboards to generate online content. Thank you to all those members who continue to interact with & share our social media posts – Every bit helps!
This Saturday, 5th of March, Jack and I will be making the trip to Mount Barker to attend the Adelaide Hills Farmer's Markets. Mount Barker has been a target of property developers for several years and now their community is operating without adequate infrastructure. We’re hoping to have some constructive conversations with locals and ask them to vote 1 SA Party to stop overdevelopment. If you’d like to come along to help reach as many Mount Barker Residents as possible (and purchase some quality fresh produce), please see the event details and RSVP here.
Then, on Sunday, 6th of March, Jack and I will be attending a Clean Up Australia Day event at Helen Mayo Park in Adelaide, hosted by Adelaide Park Lands Association. This community group shares our goal to oppose the re-zoning and development of the Adelaide Park Lands. The event will clean up Helen Mayo Park while drawing attention to the 257 trees at risk from the proposed Riverbank Arena. If you’d like to attend this Clean Up Australia Day event with us (in your Sustainable Australia T-Shirts), you can find details here. If you are planning on coming, shoot Jack a text at 0403 950 422, so we can look out for you.
If you’re attending another Clean Up Australia Day event, post a photo & tag us on Facebook or Instagram. We want to show everyone that we’re a party that puts boots on the ground to protect our environment.
Until March 19th, you’ll be seeing some of our campaign posters on buildings and walls around Adelaide’s suburbs. These are an environmentally friendly alternative to plastic corflutes on Stobie poles. We are also in the process of ordering our ‘How to Vote’ flyers that will be handed out in the lead-up to and on election day. If you can, please help us hand these out on election day on March 19th, click here to volunteer. Thank you to all those members who have bought T-shirts or hats or have donated to our campaign fund so far – your money is going directly to fund these tangible campaign resources.
To give us the best chance possible in this election, we ask any supporters who can donate to please do so at using our SA bank account details, which you will find on our campaign page here.
Yours in gratitude & enthusiasm,
Elise Michie & Jack Duxbury
Your SA Party Candidates
