Jim McDonald
Candidate for Gippsland

Jim McDonald was born in Gippsland and grew up on his family's beef farm near Meeniyan. After completing high school Jim worked as a stockman on sheep and cattle stations and as a machinery operator and rigger on construction projects. In 2016 Jim successfully qualified for his Commercial Pilots License and saw him begin his current career as an Ag Pilot. He can often be found spraying and spreading fertilizer in the hills around South Gippsland.

Jim became interested in politics when the Labor party shut down the live export trade in 2011 causing severe hardship to many of his friends in the cattle industry. With governments becoming ever more brazen at taking away our rights and liberties, Jim is proud to stand for the party that fights against government overreach for the seat of Gippsland.
