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.”

NSW One Nation today announces Richard Orchard as our Candidate for the State Seat of Goulburn. Richard has had a wealth of experience working in the real world and prides himself on being an “Ordinary Australian”. Currently he runs a small business, and also worked in Government. He worked as assistant for the late Alby Schultz (former Member for Hume) serving an apprenticeship in how to be a great local member, from a much-loved mentor.

Richard is a Vocational Teacher by Profession, having worked for NSW State Emergency Service throughout the Goulburn Electorate for 15 years, as a senior member for the State Learning and Development Team.

Before that Richard worked for Department of Primary Industries for 8 years and Corrections for 3 years. He is an expert in the field of Government.

Richard has lived in Goulburn for over 30 years, and loves the city and the surrounding communities. He is also involved in community theatre, and is a classically trained singer and sings weekly at the St Saviour’s Cathedral with the choir.

Thanks to his profession as a teacher, Richard is particularly passionate about improving Vocational Education and Training options for local students, and exploring ways of better targeting university courses to jobs that exist, and make this education free again.

Richard is interested in local issues – the 90% of things we can all agree on, including Hospitals, Schools, Roads, Public Transport, Jobs and Industry, and Rural Community and Agricultural Industries.

Richard says: “What the Goulburn electorate needs is a vocal LOCAL member, a person who will not be dragged off to be a Government Minister to leave the electorate to fend for itself. We also need a person who is not merely making up numbers in a Sydney run Government, with their puppet strings pulled by the faceless men of the Establishment Liberal and Labor Parties.

One Nation stands for delivering all the things we can agree on, the needs of all ordinary Australian people. As One Nation State Member, I will be able to loudly campaign for what we as ordinary people need – Health, Education, Transport, Roads, Energy Pricing, Cost of Living Pressures, and Jobs and the Local Economy.

The Sydney Elites like to call us “populists” as if that’s a bad thing. But a populist is someone who spends their time talking to their local constituents, finding out their needs from government, and representing those needs so that they get outcomes. For too long Elite Parties have had it all their own way – they get people elected, and then do exactly what they think is best for you. I guarantee to be your ears, your voice, and your champion – not a puppet with strings pulled from Sydney. Make no mistake – Mark Latham’s team CAN run a great government”

NSW One Nation today announces Charlie Fenton will run in Wollondilly.

Mark Latham will be launching Charlie at The Royal Hotel in Bowral at 11am.

Charlie was previously a loyal member of the National Party (since 1986). He stood for the party in 2003 in the state seat of Port Macquarie. He advocated for the needs of rural communities but no longer felt the Nats was the right party for him.

The Nats’ loss is One Nation’s gain.

Charlie lives in the Southern Highlands where he breeds Dorper sheep and is heavily involved in the community.

Charlie says, “In many ways I feel that I have been in training for this job for 40 years. As a 4th generation publican, I have a genuine passion for seeing people, businesses and communities prosper. During four decades in the hotel game I have run pubs from Leeton to Taree, Sydney and the Southern Highlands. This has exposed me to people literally from every walk of life and equipped me with the skills to deal with the broadest cross-section of people.”

One Nation NSW today announces Mick Jackson as our no.3 Upper House Candidate. Mick grew up in South-West Sydney and resides in the Camden area. He is currently a Train Driver with a background in Police and Emergency Services. He is involved with his local Rural Fire Brigade and SES Unit. Mick is also the State Director for One Nation NSW and sits on the State Executive.

Mick’s involvement in politics and the party started a little over two years ago when, fed up with the two-party duopoly, he wanted to give people in NSW and Australia a viable third choice.

Mick says: “In NSW we’ve had eight years of a left leaning, self-serving, asset selling LNP Government. Preceding that we had 16 years of Labor Government plagued with incompetence and corruption. The people of NSW deserve better. I’m keen on listening to the community and representing their actual needs and concerns – this is currently missing from politics at all levels and has been for some time.”
Mick’s local policy focus will be (but not limited to):

  • An end PC to madness – abolishment of gender employment quotas (especially within the Public Sector, for a return to praising hard work ethic where recruitment is merit based)
  • A sustainable, workable plan for lower immigration – Sydney needs a breather so jobs, transport infrastructure, schools, hospitals and services can catch up to the rapid population increase.
  • Support for our Police and Emergency Services.

Behind the scenes, Mick is leading our co-ordination efforts for Election Day and looking for supporters to assist Mark and the NSW Team on polling booths across the State. Please let him know how you can help at: nswvolunteers@onenation.com.au

Statement by Mark Latham, NSW One Nation Leader

NSW Government planning documents reveal an impending population increase of 2 million people in Western Sydney, yet no commitment or funding allocation for a new public hospital.

In October the Planning Minister, Anthony Roberts, admitted that, “The State Government is laying the foundations for the development of a new city around (Badgerys Creek) Airport (the Aerotropolis) that when completed will be larger than Adelaide.”

Adelaide has a population of 1.3 million people. Combined with existing land and housing development in places like Oran Park, the total population increase in the Penrith-to-Camden corridor will be 2 million.

Amazingly, given the scale of urban development, the Berejiklian Government has not announced any plan for a new hospital to service this vast number of people.

The closest it has come is at page 48 of its Badgerys Creek Aerotropolis document, which talks of how: “NSW Health is investigating a site for an integrated health facility within the Aerotropolis in a metropolitan or strategic centre location supported by public transport. This could serve up to 250,000 people from around the Western Parkland City.”

Most likely, the ‘integrated health facility’ will be a series of primary care clinics. In any case, in meeting the needs of 250,000 people, it is still 1.75 million short in its servicing capacity for the surrounding population.

The Penrith/Camden corridor urgently needs State Government funding and site allocation for a new public hospital. Otherwise the strain on existing hospitals at Nepean, Liverpool, Campbelltown and Camden will be untenable.

Many people in the growth corridor will have lengthy travelling times to reach these other hospitals, which are already over-crowded and under-resourced.

The new hospital near Badgerys Creek must also have a large, high-quality peadiatric unit, in recognition of how this part of Western Sydney is becoming the youth capital of Australia.

One Nation recommends an early down payment on the hospital’s funding by abandoning the proposed Powerhouse Museum relocation to Parramatta, estimated to cost $1.1 billion.

It’s an insult to Western Sydney and our young families to think that museum facilities are more important to the region than a new hospital in and around Badgerys Creek specialising in paediatric care.

Both Labor and the Liberals are committed to spending huge amounts of public money on arts facilities in Parramatta when the overwhelming priority for the region should be hospital facilities to cope with the Penrith/Camden population explosion.

This is our age-long battle in Western Sydney: to provide essential services before the people move in.

I will fight as hard as possible to correct this latest planning atrocity in our region.

Pauline Hanson’s One Nation also has a policy of cutting Australia’s permanent immigration program by two-thirds, to take these population pressures off Western Sydney in the first place.
