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.”

STATEMENT: CANDIDATE ANNOUNCEMENT – MIRANDA

NSW One Nation today announces Gaye Cameron as our Legislative Assembly candidate for the Seat of Miranda. Gaye is married, living with her husband and daughter in Sylvania, Gaye’s career spans 30 years including all tiers of Government, Private Sector, Education Sector, and Non-for-Profit areas, specialising in risk management, health & safety, and emergency management. 

Gaye has also been actively involved as a volunteer for 13 years with the NSW State Emergency Service, where she was the Local Controller/ Area Commander for the City of Randwick. Gaye has witnessed first hand the devastation of disasters on local communities, including floods, storms, and fires. Gaye has also been on many State and Local Planning Committees, including the recent Sutherland Shire Flood Planning Committee. Based on Gaye’s experiences and education, she will be focusing on many local issues affecting the residents of Miranda.

Some of Gaye’s key areas of focus will be (but not limited to):

* Over-development and congestion in Miranda

* Bringing back trades: Apprenticeships & Traineeships (University is not for everyone)

* Improved Transport – buses and extended hours

* Holding down road-user charges to a reasonable, affordable level

* Making the NSW Workers Compensation system fairer

* Swim to Live – all Primary School Children to Learn to Swim

* Aged Care – Client to Carer Ratios & Implement Recommendations from Royal Commission

* Waterways & Streets – Clean up our waterways & re-tree our roads/streets

* Education – Lets get back to basics and remove socialist nanny state ideologies in the curriculum 

Gaye says: “Based on my own beliefs, experiences and life in general, One Nations policies and platform are aligned. Like many others, I feel disillusioned and betrayed by the two old major parties and how they continually deceive the people.

“One Nation will be a highly valuable, robust and tenacious alternative. Although One Nation is a small party, we are not restricted and bound in policy by allegiances to donors, be it big corporate entities or trade unions.

“One Nation is a party that represents everybody including the hard-working mums and dads of NSW, which in recent times, have been neglected by the major parties. One Nation policies are for the melioration of NSW as a whole, and not to represent vocal minority groups. One Nation provides a common sense, practical, logical and straightforward approach to everyday problems faced my fellow residents of Miranda, and the State of New South Wales.”
