Composer and theatre director Steven Bailey, 29, has been endorsed as a candidate for the Senate.
Mr Bailey says he will be focusing on public service jobs and saving the ANU School of Music.
“When there was unprecedented support to keep that place open last year, I asked where was Labor, where was Liberal, where were the Greens?” he said.
“The ACT had no voice to keep that place open and I’d like to bring that back to the fore.”
Mr Bailey says the Katter’s Australian Party should not be judged on misconceptions.
“I’m not here to ask the ACT for their vote, I’m here to earn their vote and that’s what I’ll be doing over the next seven months or eight months,” he said.
“How people relate to the party is up to them, all I can do is do my best and listen to the people of the ACT.”
Apparently they’re also going to take a swing at Gai Brodtmann in the southern seat of Canberra.
For those who’ve missed the Katter magic, enjoy the above video, it’s real.
