James Noonan is running for the Science Party in the Longman by-election.
I graduated Griffith University in 2017 with a Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice. Having followed the political scene throughout my education, like a lot of Australians I became disillusioned with the policies of the major political parties. Policy should be informed by supporting data, not decided arbitrarily, and the people of Longman deserve better.
To take the next step in our evolution Australia needs to adjust the way it looks at criminal justice, health, education, and social reform. All Australians should benefit from well funded public services that improve our quality of life. I want you to have the opportunity to influence change in your electorate by supporting the Science Party and my campaign in Longman.
Running for election, however, is not cheap. Simply registering as a candidate requires a $1,000 deposit, and it costs about 10 cents to reach a voter with our message. Please help with whatever you can, even if it's just a friendly wave or greeting when you see me out and about.
