HOW TO VOTE CARD - click on image

I have lived at Parrearra for the past ten years, and have spent the last ten years working with farmers and land owners in remote Australia.

I have also spent 30 years in Sydney working across business development, sales for a global telecommunications company, debt recovery, business-to-business publishing and advertising.

I studied engineering, quality management and business marketing part time while working as a technical sales engineer for a defence manufacturer on the Collins class submarine project.

I am passionate about putting Australia first and ending politicians’ unfair and excessive pensions, entitlements and benefits.

I have worked extensively with men's groups teaching empowerment skills to assist men in embracing their lives with integrity and respect for the betterment of themselves, their relationships and the community.

Fake news and the incitement of racial and religious conflict is rife, drawing attention away from critical issues that affect the quality of life of our people both now and into the future.

Important issues for Australia and the electorate include the increase in electricity and water bills through privatisation and mismanagement; greater foreign ownership of agricultural land putting control of the bulk of food production into the hands of foreign entities; the selling off of mineral resources to foreign investments; inadequate pensions for elders, veterans and the unemployed; provisional tax strangling small business growth; and the NBN failure.

We wonder why we seem to not be learning from the mistakes of our past, but nothing substantial or meaningful will change under the Labor/Greens alliance or Liberal/Nationals Coalition.

The two-party system is now failing Australia and the Australian people with corporate politicians pandering to themselves and their corporate donors instead of acting in the best interests of our people and our sovereignty.

Real change can only occur when the voice of the people, not the self-serving major parties, is heard and acted upon. The UAP and I as the candidate for Fisher are committed to taking that voice to parliament.

But we can't do that without the help of the people. The people must demand change on election day. We the people must see that continuing to vote for the major parties and expecting a different outcome from the government is insanity, a wasted vote and a lost opportunity for real change.

“Why do you want to be a politician?” and “Can you outline one significant issue that you think is concerning for our local readers and what you propose to do about it?”

Why do I want to become a politician? Because no one is providing a plan for the future I can trust and all I see from career politicians, the men and women we look to for leadership, is short-sighted vote buying and back office party donation deals while they remind us daily the budget is getting better and better when we all know the economy is going nowhere and people are going backwards We need better ideas!
The $75 one-off electricity bill payment will not fix the electricity prices into the future and this short-sighted offer only highlights they really don’t get it.
I actually don’t want to be a politician. I don’t trust any of them, but something needs to change and I’m sick of moaning about it, so I’m having a go because a veteran mate I have worked with in the bush for the past 10 years said I can make a difference and he’s a good judge of character, so I’m going to trust him on this one and do what I can to make difference.
Who knows, maybe a team of everyday Aussies with some common sense can disrupt and change a political system that’s not serving the country or the Australian people in the way it was intended to.
A big issue facing locals is better support for small family businesses.
I have lived and worked in the bush for the past 10 years and 12 years working for small family engineering businesses and the lack of support for small business for over 30 years is a disgrace.
Those businesses are the backbone of every community and rather than assist them to grow and employ locals, governments enforce a tax regime that strangles their cash flow that in turn effects everyone in the community either directly or indirectly.
Delaying the payment of provisional tax will free up small business cash flow and circulate $70 billion every year through our economy. That’s better for everyone.
Why can’t Australians claim the interest on their home loan as a tax deduction just like big business does – it’s only fair isn’t it!
The tax system needs reform so it’s fair for all Australians not just big businesses operating from tax havens.

"The last political party Clive Palmer set up ended with division, elected members abandoning their voters and leaving the party, and the party being deregistered. Why should voters think it will be any different this time?"

Prior to endorsement as the candidate for Fisher I was not a member of the PUP (Palmer United Party) or involved with the party so I can’t speak for anyone from that time or with any authority on what happened during that period. Clive has spoken about those days of the PUP in great detail and there are numerous interviews online for viewing.
During those years I was working in remote Australia with farmers and land owners and I’m not here to talk about the past. It’s a distraction to the real issues, I’m here to call politicians to account for their unfair pensions and entitlements and pull them back in line with everyday working Aussies.
What I do remember was Clive became a politician in 2013 because the government was charging his QNI business $27 million a year in carbon tax and if that tax continued the refinery would close. Clive gave up his career at the refinery and set up a political party to hold the balance of power in the Senate and abolish the carbon tax, which is why I voted for him in 2013 when I lived in Buderim.
Why should voters think it will be any different this time?
It’s very different this time for many reasons.
1.     150 candidates in every seat across Australia in the House of Representatives and the Senate.
2.      A full suite of transformational policies that put Australia first and put the Australian people first and help the most disadvantaged.
3.     Tax reforms that benefit all Australians not just foreign investors, big business and political interest groups.
4.     10,000 members and growing.
5.     Save $30 billion on submarines that are a proven successfully tested design.
6.     70% of the country is now dissatisfied with the current major parties.
7.     Unprecedented financial investment to give the Australian people an alternative voice in parliament that cannot be ignored.
As the candidate for Fisher the level of support I have received personally is amazing and a credit to all those working behind the scenes for years to make the United Australia Party a force for the future that will put Australia first.

"What is it about you, what you offer and what you stand for that makes you the best election choice for locals living in the hinterland?"

It’s time for politicians to grow up and stop behaving like spoilt children.
Young men and young women are looking for leaders and visionaries for the future they will inherit.
How can political leaders expect a country, a community or the world to become more tolerant and respectful when those very leaders continually attack each other personally in the most vicious, intolerant and disrespectful manner day in and day out - it’s a waste of our money and we demand a higher standard.
It’s time for our political leaders to be held to account and lead by example and demonstrate through their actions and to the young men and young women in their communities looking to them for leadership to tackle the important issues, not constantly being distracted by media cycles and revenge fuelled personal attacks.
The measure of any free and respectful society is how it treats its senior citizens.
The United Australia Party will give our elderly the respect they deserve and stop insulting the contribution our senior citizens have made to this country and our communities and increase the age pension by $150 a week, which will enrich our communities in numerous ways.
We will reform the tax system and move the date for provisional tax and free up small business cash flow totalling $70 billion each year to be injected directly into the economy.
We will back Australian farmers by introducing the Australia Fund to support our primary producers and farmers in times of natural disasters or hardship.
We will make home loans tax deductible and stop the sell-off of agricultural land to foreign powers.
It’s time to think much bigger.
