STATEMENT: CANDIDATE ANNOUNCEMENT

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.

Former Labor leader turned One Nation candidate Mark Latham has come out swinging on his first campaign pitch, accusing the NSW Berejiklian government of turning Sydney into a huge “unliveable construction site” ringed by “alien” residential towers.

Kicking off his campaign for the NSW election on March 23, Mr Latham was back at his favourite stomping ground yesterday: Sydney’s sprawling outer west.

Ten degrees hotter than the rest of Sydney and 60km from the nearest beach, the outer west has been earmarked as the site for Sydney’s new “purpose-built” city, Aerotropolis, and the city’s second international airport.

I had a great chat with Chris Kenny on 2GB last night. We talked about where the Coalition’s going wrong – and what Shorten’s getting right.

Labor want to turn finance into an investment agency, turning taxpayer’s money into a casino. This is a major policy nightmare that every Australian should be aware of when thinking about Labor.

Also be aware: big immigration is propping up the country. That’s not good economic management. The economy isn’t working for the average Australian family.


Plus, the quality of the policy debate has declined. We must correct that.

Listen to the chat here.

The Northern Daily Leader have run a piece today talking about NSW One Nation – and the call out for candidates across the state.

The piece says: “He [Mark] believes there is a mood for change in state’s regional seats, and has put the call out for potential candidates in the electorate to put their hand up.

“After huge swings in the Orange and Wagga Wagga by-elections, it is clear country people feel neglected by the Berejiklian government,” Mr Latham said.

“Pauline Hanson’s One Nation wants to overcome this neglect with positive solutions, especially during this testing time of drought.

“I see One Nation as a party of action, determined to get on with the job for people neglected by the Sydney-centric major parties…”
