Bob Couch for Boothby
Bob Couch is a lifelong South Australian with a wealth of experience who loves hard work.
Growing up on the land at Echunga, Bob made a career as an accountant in the public service before taking on computer programming and eventually managing the IT branch of an entire government department. Not content to remain idle after leaving the public service, Bob has since turned his hand to a lot of trades, as well as sailing and environmental volunteer work.
“I still work part-time in my retirement. I’m a handyman who enjoys working. I’ve been a gardening contractor and an electrical trade assistant. I’ve worked on farms, assembly lines and construction sites, and I’ve driven forklifts. I enjoy sailing and I’m part of a volunteer group monitoring mallee fowl nesting sites. I like to keep busy.”
Bob’s biggest concern for Australia is unchecked population growth and the impact it has on the environment.
“I’ve joined One Nation because it’s the only party with influence that supports arresting unchecked population growth, which in Australia is mostly driven by immigration. We have no problem with immigration, but it needs to be reduced to sustainable levels. It will reduce the congestion in our cities, reduce the demand which is putting affordable housing out of reach for many Australians, reduce the burden on taxpayers and reduce our negative impacts on the environment. One Nation seems to be the only party unafraid to have this very important debate.
“I’m standing for One Nation because we need to have this conversation at every election and ask why the major parties are determined to lock in unsustainable immigration levels. I’m standing for One Nation because it has sound policies to make housing more affordable and available. I’m standing for One Nation because One Nation is standing for the protection of essential democratic principles that have been discarded during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The duopoly imposed on Australia by the major parties for more than a century now has left us with little choice at elections. One Nation offers an alternative voice in Parliament for the many Australians who feel silenced and disenfranchised by this two-party system. We’ve got the guts to say what people are thinking, and we’re aiming for the balance of power to leverage One Nation policies for the benefit of all Australians.”
