Vaccine mandates

Vaccine Mandates Policy

My Position on Vaccine Mandates

The mandates are a state issue primarily but that doesn’t stop your federal member from helping. I am pro choice.

Unfortunately the UAP are using the issue to try and gain votes, but the fact that the UAP have done a deal with the Liberal Party to help them get re-elected shows that their talk about mandates is simply a ploy to get more votes. They will do nothing to help you.

I am running for the house (which didn’t vote on last year’s Bill, since this was in the Senate) but what I am offering, is to help those affected by mandates to voice their opinion with the State legislators who create the mandate laws.

If we all come together and discuss this issue in a positive, collaborative environment, I am positive we have a beneficial outcome for all involved.

If you care about Mandates, I recommend you Put Penny at 1 on your ballot paper, and then One Nation.

My Background

I have spent 30 years of my life in the electorate of Hume.

My most recent job has been that of a teacher for kids with special needs, who may have learning disabilities or require extra attention in getting up to speed on their subjects. I have been a teacher at Goulburn and Picton High Schools, both inside our amazing electorate of Hume. 

I have also recently been an advocate for small businesses across the electorate, showcasing videos for businesses in both Wollondilly and Goulburn-Mulwaree as they deal with the pandemic. 

You can check these videos out here.

 I have a husband (John) and son (Jack) and I currently reside just outside of Goulburn, NSW.

My Platform

How I Came to Run

Initially I did not intend to run. I was involved in community-based project, which sought feedback from people around the Hume electorate, from all political persuasions. 

Speaking with people over coffee and asking them about what they wanted to see from their elected representatives was a great experience. I enjoyed it and I still do.

After the submission of the final report from this project, people were urged to self-nominate, to run as the endorsed Community candidate, based on the issues outlined in the report. I was invited to put myself forward as a potential contender. 

In total, 4 people put their names forward and in August last year, two town-hall styled forums took place with around 100 participants listening in from across the electorate. 

Feedback was collected and I was selected to be the community candidate for Hume

I am honoured to represent my community and I hope that you will also get behind this campaign which is driven by our community, instead of political parties or the big industry donors that fund them (in exchange for favourable policy).


Funding

My campaign is crowdfunded, primarily by people from across the Hume electorate. I am not accepting funds from C200, Getup, Oil and Gas companies, pharmaceuticals or any other special interest group. I feel that as someone who advocates for reform of the electoral donation system, it would not look right for me to accept donations from groups who operate outside of our electorate or who have special interests.

 

My Preferences and Allegiances:

 

You might be happy to know (depending on your leanings) that I won’t be recommending preferences at all.

Contrary to how some understand it, in Australia, each voter is free to choose their own preferences. It’s only in ‘how to vote’ cards – which is simply a form of advertising – that candidates will often recommend voters on how to preference other candidates. There is no obligation for anyone to follow this, so only voters can make this decision.

I will not be releasing How to Vote cards, and therefore not preferencing anyone.

I am however asking that all voters put me first and then their party second (after me).

I hope this clarifies.
