Why I’m running
To me, it's all about the people: I'm a hard-working man and like many locals, I had to do two jobs at some stage. I owned a small business for five years and I know the challenges that face local businesses and hard-working locals. Homeownership in our electorate is at a very low rate and even rental properties are hard to find. The environment is my other huge motivation. We need to work together on solutions. A vote for me is a vote for proper representation of our electorate in parliament.
In the last twelve years, I worked many jobs: in a gas station, field technician at a livestock company, managed a restaurant, and owned a small business. Today I'm a corrections officer. As a member of the local Muslim community, I was overwhelmed by the kindness, solidarity, and love we received from our wider community in the wake of the terrorist attack in March last year. I will always be proud of our nation. I would like to thank you, I'd be honoured to serve you as a member of parliament.
