Aussie families are paying more for their everyday goods because of excessive port charges imposed on truckies.

Hard-working truckies already doing it tough financially are now being hit with unfair port surcharges.

This is clearly an example of price gouging, with truckies being slugged financially simply for presenting their vehicle at the port.

It’s time multi-national stevedoring companies stopped using Aussie truckies as ATMs.

The NSW Government continues to sit back and let the big stevedore companies fleece local truck operators.

Truckies deserve a break from escalating port surcharges. So why won’t the Government act? 

Port charges have risen by 89%, without justification, without consultation. This is hurting the competitiveness of our exports, costing NSW jobs and income.

Multi-national stevedore companies must end the practice of outrageous port surcharges being imposed on NSW truckies.

And the State Government must stamp out this rip-off. If elected to NSW parliament on 23 March, NSW One Nation (led by Mark Latham) will do everything it can to get a better deal for our trucking industry and the great people working in it.

A Vote for Helen Dalton is a Vote for Labor

Statement by Mark Latham, NSW One Nation Leader

10 March 2019

The Shooters’ candidate for Murray, Helen Dalton, is trying to deceive voters in the electorate.

She has pledged to support a Michael Daley Labor Government in a hung NSW Parliament. This is in return for receiving Labor preferences.

Yet in past elections 80 percent of people in Murray have voted against the Labor Party. They don’t want Daley to be the Premier with his green environmental policies.

Dalton is set to become the Tony Windsor and Rob Oakeshott of NSW politics: representing a very conservative seat yet backing the Labor Party into government.

In The Australian newspaper on Friday the Shooters all but declared victory in Murray, leaking that their “internal polling shows the primary vote of the Shooters in (Murray) is in the high 20s and the Nationals in the low 30s. With Labor preferences expected to go straight to the Shooters”, they expect to win.

Dalton is only receiving Labor preferences because she will support a Labor Government in what is expected to be a hung NSW Parliament.

Dalton is backing Labor’s agenda for green water policies, an Indigenous Treaty, gender fluidity in schools and a zero-carbon NSW economy. This means the destruction of industry and jobs in Murray.

Our One Nation candidate Tom Weyrich is independent of the Labor Party. He will never support a Labor Government wanting to legislate for a zero carbon NSW economy, with its industry and job destroying impact on this electorate.

He will never support a Labor Government in bed with The Greens supplying less water for farmers. He will fight hard for the people of Murray, implementing his policies for more water, more timber jobs and more hospital funding

STATEMENT: Candidate announcement

One Nation today announces our candidate for the seat of Kogarah, Phillip Pollard.

Phillip has lived in the area for most of his life and is well aware of the issues within the Kogarah electorate.

Phillip is a retired lithographic printer. He also has over 35 years experience in the Australian Army raising to Warrant Rank.

His policy focus includes:

  1. Over population –  we’re over full, this is evident with the amount of high rises going up in Sydney, the lack of space on public transport and congestion on our roads.
  2. Return to the use of government building inspectors and the return older NSW building standards (not imported standards that continually fail).
  3. Lack of water not only for the farmers but also for Sydney.

Legislative Assembly Candidate

Mark Preston was born and raised in Newcastle and moved to Sydney to pursue his career. Mark’s career includes an untarnished 25 years with Fire & Rescue NSW (formerly NSW Fire Brigades) including three years as a retained fireman in Raymond Terrace-Newcastle. He also spent two years with Ambulance NSW.

Mark’s career now involves Facilities Management in Aged Care, as well as running a small business for the last 10 years serving St George & Sutherland Shire. Mark has also been a Volunteer with the NSW State Emergency Service. In giving so much to the community, Mark has been a recipient of NSW Awards for Service & Commendation, NSW Premiers Award for Service 1994 Sydney Fire Emergency, National Service Medal & Clasps for 15-20-25years Service, and the NSW Fire Brigades LSGC Medal. Since leaving School Mark has given to community either paid or as a volunteer, some 32 years.

Mark’s passionate about his community and his Country, and lives by the ‘fair go’ motto: “A hard day’s work never hurts anyone”.

Mark is concerned about our natural resources and the mismanagement of our natural waterways. He also cares about our native animals and their habitats. Mark has predominantly lived in the Oatley and St George area since coming to Sydney. He’s passionate about preserving its heritage, serenity and ensuring tall towers of units don’t creep in. Mark wants to ensure State owned infrastructure is kept by the State and stop privatisation.

Issues that Mark will stand for include:

  • Cap developments in Oatley, Mortdale, Penshurst – No High-Rise Units at all.
  • Emergency services to be provided for better (in terms of improved Stations, more efficient vehicles and better pay and conditions).
  • Ensure that we have fairer and lessor road tolls – the cost imposed on families and small businesses is unfair.
  • Preserve our State Parks.
  • Abolish Pay Roll Tax on all Apprentices and Traineeships (businesses should not suffer through employing Apprentices & Trainees).

NSW One Nation today announces Neil Turner as our Lower House candidate for the seat of Maitland. Neil has lived in the Hunter region for nine years and works in the mining industry as a fitter machinist. Neil has engaged in a continuous learning process, has a Diploma of Business and studied draughting. Repairing and building machinery is one of his passions.

Neil says, “I have been a long time supporter of Pauline Hanson and first joined the party in the late nineties. When I heard Pauline Hanson’s maiden speech it really struck a chord. I feel that we have been let down by the major parties and in many ways we could be doing much better. I feel let down that after our Electricity network was privatised and sold off, we now have to pay more for electricity and our manufacturing sector is under more stress with higher costs reducing their competitiveness. I lived in the bush for many years and saw our agricultural sector compete internationally against countries which subsidised their products.

“I see things in my own neighbourhood that can and should be done better. This region is the powerhouse of New South Wales and the finances generated here push forward many projects in the state, however little of those finances are spent here. Vast suburbs are being created with little thought of traffic conjestion. We should be planning more effectively.

“Due to the projected growth of more than 12,000 new dwellings in the next 15 years, the need for more schools and a new hospital should be in the construction phase by now. I believe policies of One Nation do strike a chord with people – and the quicker we get people elected to office the more we can make change happen.

“I would like better ways of dealing with family breakups and the senseless financial costs imposed on people. Plus, getting youth more engaged in social and community activites. I am a fixer and a builder and I would like to bring the brightest minds together, young and old to find innovative ways to bring a great lifestyle and enjoyment to Maitland.”

Michael Byrne For Holsworthy: One Nation Will Build An Extra 3,000 Commuter Car Parking Spaces At Edmondson Park And Leppington Stations

Statement by Mark Latham, NSW One Nation Leader

I am delighted today to announce that the One Nation candidate for the seat of Holsworthy will be Michael Byrne, an experienced community leader and strong fighter for Liverpool.

His work over many decades at the East Liverpool Progress Association has been outstanding. Michael stands up for better government and a fairer deal for local people.

The lack of State Government planning to accommodate rapid population growth in Liverpool has been disgraceful.

This can be seen at Leppington and Edmondson Park railway stations each day. Even though they were opened just four years ago, the lack of commuter parking spaces has produced chaos, overcrowding and unsafe conditions on surrounding streets.

There can be no clearer demonstration of government failure than this basic neglect of sound planning in South-West Sydney.

Given the extra population growth projected at Leppington, west to the Badgerys Creek Airport site, the parking problem is just beginning.

Urgent action is needed to overcome the shortfall. This is why One Nation will use $90 million from its $200 million Commuter Car Parking Fund to build 1,500 extra parking spaces at Edmondson Park and 1,500 at Leppington.

Only One Nation has a fair dinkum policy. Labor has committed to just 300 extra parking spots at Leppington and the Liberals and Labor 700 new spaces at Edmondson Park.

This is nowhere near enough. The combined Labor/Liberal effort is only one-third of what’s needed.

Leppington currently has 850 spaces and under One Nation’s policy it will have 2350. Edmondson Park has a paltry 400 spots now, with One Nation taking this to 1900.

Only Michael Byrne will get the job done, delivering better government and planning for this fast-growing part of Sydney.

I also want to pay tribute to the tireless efforts of local campaigner Michael Andjelkovic and the many people who have signed his petitions calling for extra station parking. Michael has given this issue a profile no decent political party can ignore.

STATEMENT: CANDIDATE ANNOUNCEMENT

NSW One Nation today, announces Janet Kayes as one of our Legislative Council Candidates. Janet will be number 4 on the ticket.

Janet would bring to Parliament a wide range of experience having been self-employed for over 40 years. She has manufactured ultra violet swimwear for the Cancer Council in addition to exporting. With imports flooding the market, it became difficult to compete in manufacturing. To support her family, as a single mum with four children, she retrained in real estate. Janet is a fully Licensed Real Estate Agent with 22 years’ experience and now works independently through her Boutique Agency.

She brings with her a host of life experiences; she is a hard and a tenacious worker. To sustain her family over the years, she took on second jobs, working of a night, including a Biosecurity Officer.

Janet says, “I’m standing for One Nation as they have the courage and fortitude to state openly, and passionately what the hard working, salt of the earth population is crying out for. Pauline Hanson and Mark Latham aren’t ‘cringing in a corner’ like politicians in the mainstream parties, who are being governed by the hysterical, fear mongering of minority groups. One Nation is pushing back to bring back a true, transparent democracy. Our politicians aren’t listening; they are turning their backs on the wishes of the people and have a ‘holier-than-thou attitude’.

“Our children are being indoctrinated by a bland, dumbing down education system. NSW has turned into a nanny state and Australia is looking down the barrel of being a third world country. I have the fire in my belly and want to stand up and be counted on behalf of future generations.

“I’m passionate about the loss of our freedom of speech, the gag on transparency and democracy which is now at a gallop. We are being deceived, manipulated and lied to by the omission of truth. Suppression Orders in our Courts have doubled since 2011. Some crimes are being committed with anonymity in addition to some statements of facts being withheld. In many cases the law spends more time and effort protecting the guilty instead of the victims. We are not experiencing open justice.

 “One Nation is a ‘no nonsense’ party, straight shooting and speaking out for the frustrated silent majority. They are giving us a voice and making us feel more empowered to make sure that our future generations will not be shackled by this ongoing political correctness, which is out of control.”

STATEMENT: CANDIDATE ANNOUNCEMENT

NSW One Nation today announces local businesswoman Emma Eros as our Candidate for the State Seat of Hornsby. Emma is a young mother, a grandmother and is married to an Australian plumber. She owns and runs a successful plumbing construction company and is a licensed plumber herself.

Over the course of a substantial career in business management, Emma says. “I have developed my professional practice from providing operations support and office management to Senior Management Executive (SME) positions into heading up my own business enterprises.”

As a proud Australian Muslim woman, Emma will be a great asset to Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party. She’s full of energy and fresh ideas for the many problems confronted by Hornsby and Australia. One of her main concerns for our area at present is the exceedingly poor infrastructure in and around the area.

The density building approvals that are being handed out are occurring prior to the greater need for infrastructure being adequately addressed.

The increased infrastructure which is exclusively required in Hornsby and is lagging way behind will contribute to the ever growing creation of traffic congestion. 

Emma is also passionate about hospital parking. She says, “Parking should be free at all times for hospital staff and free for the first three hours for any visitors. There should be a discount applied for families who are visiting long term patients on a regular basis.”

“These car parks were built with taxpayer money, so the taxpayer should get to decide what happens with them. Besides, hospital facilities should not be turned into a business by privatisation.”

Emma is equally concerned about the growing youth drug problem around Hornsby and the wider neighbourhood including the train stations that never seem to be tackled with any real solutions.

She says, “a workable solution must be found for the safety of the youth and the wider community.”

As a long time local, Emma is a common household name within Hornsby and brings to One Nation Party a wealth of business and personal experience.

Emma believes that Australia is, first and foremost, for Australians.

“We have been strengthened by the many that have preceded us, those who have come here to join us from far and wide. This strengthening tapestry of our nation has enriched our country and there are many success stories that have emerged from its weaving,” she says.

Emma is tired of the same problems that are raised time and time again by the same old tired politicians and feels that it is time for someone to lead the charge on these problems as Australians are sick and tired of Labor and Liberal.

Emma says, “The two major parties are basically the same. The way to get out of this two party trap is by voting for Pauline Hanson’s One Nation. I’m happy to be a part of Pauline Hanson’s team and I look forward to contributing to its success as they continue our communities and the nation.”

NSW One Nation today announces Thomas Weyrich as our Candidate for the State Seat of Murray. Thomas is a 62-year-old motor mechanic, operating a business in Moama which employs three people. This year is his 40th wedding anniversary and September this year marks 20 years as a local government councillor. Thomas has also been Mayor and Deputy Mayor of the Murray Shire.

Thomas was a previous member of the National Party around 15 years ago for a short time.

Thomas says, “The water issue is of great concern to people of regional NSW. I’ve said for many years that good knowledge and good science don’t have a place in this debate.

“I believe there are political reasons that we are in this mess – and the Nats don’t appear to be too concerned. Indeed, they are the junior members of the Coalition.

“The Nats promised to reverse decisions around State Forests and National Parks – it hasn’t happened. Infrastructure is also concern and spending $20 million on a police station that’s only half occupied is not satisfactory either. Having been in small business most of my adult life, and being a councilor, holds me in good stead to deal with major issues.”
