Troy Simpson Announces Intention to Contest Fraser Seat

By Troy Simpson 2 March 2011 44

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.

Follow me on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/troy.simpson.for.fraser), follow me on Twitter (http://twitter.com/#!/Simpson4Fraser), and comment on my website (http://www.troy-simpson.com).

Rage against the machine.

Good luck in Fraser – one of the most rusted on ALP seats in the known universe.

But they haven’t discovered Troy World yet, where anything is possible.

Intriguing. Any chance you and I can connect elsewhere — either online (eg, on Facebook) or, even better, the real world, for a chat?

Yeah . . . could probably do that. Let me have a think about it, though (I’d have to break a promise to myself).

Even more intriguing. Look me up on Facebook, if you like, so that you will see I am not all that scary 😉
