This week, I have announced that I will stand as an Independent for the seat of Fraser at the next Federal election. I am contesting the seat in order to offer voters in Fraser a credible alternative to Labor and Liberal.
I stand for small-l liberal, progressive social views, including support for same-sex marriage and a more human asylum-seeker policy.
I also put myself forward as a credible choice for small-business, with a decade of lived experience running a multi-award-winning company. My record also includes a successful legal career, academic credentials, and a career as a published author.
I want to give Labor voters a chance to tell Labor to stop taking their votes for granted.
I want to give Liberal voters the chance to support someone who will fight to win the seat and not merely bridge the gap between Labor and second-place.
For all voters, I offer fact-based, common-sense solutions to our problems, free from dogma, factions, and machine politics.
As an Independent, I can say what I believe—and believe what I say. Independence of mind is good for governance and good for the people of Fraser.
I ask voters in Fraser to look beyond the two Parties. Vote for your values. Don’t sign away your vote to the Parties’ factions and spin doctors.
My campaign — our campaign — starts now, so that we can build support for the hard task ahead.
Rage against the machine.
