Born and bred in Bathurst, Stacey Whittaker is a hero in her community for her decades of volunteering and social work. In 2019 her dedication to her community was recognised with a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM).
“Life in regional Australia has its challenges, but I wouldn’t swap growing up on this side of the Blue Mountains for anything. Over the years I’ve done a lot of work with young people who find life challenging as well. We need to support our young people and offer them every opportunity to stay in our regional communities to live, learn, work and raise families.”
A former president of the Bathurst Business Chamber and a local employer for 17 years, Stacey understands the need to ensure young people have the skills and training they need—and the skills and training Australia needs.
“I’m standing for One Nation in Calare because Pauline Hanson puts Australia and Australians first. She secured a very successful program from the government that has created more than 3000 apprenticeships, and this is the sort of thing that can make a real positive difference in a young person’s life. I’d love to see a national apprenticeship scheme helping more young Australians and creating a big pool of skilled workers our nation will need in the future.
“Putting Australia first also means ensuring foreign-owned multinationals operating here pay their fair share of tax, and not allowing our country to be held hostage by international climate zealots picking easy targets while letting the biggest global emitters off the hook. It means looking after our farmers when they need help in times of drought or flood instead of shackling them with red and green tape. It means having long-term vision and investing in the future of Australia.
“The communities of Calare continue to struggle with under-resourced local health services, youth unemployment and a government which consistently fails to plan for the long-term in the chase for votes. That’s why I’m standing for One Nation in Calare. The community is tired of politics as usual and being taken for granted. They need a voice in Canberra that works for their interests and not those of the major parties and their corporate and union donors. They need a representative who will fight for the individual rights and freedoms which the major parties have happily discarded during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the fundamental principles of Australian democracy.
“Pauline Hanson’s got the guts to say what people are thinking. One Nation is a voice for Australians marginalised, dismissed and ignored by the cosy political duopoly imposed on Australia by Labor and the Coalition, and whose jobs and industries are under continuing threat from the major parties’ rush to net-zero emissions. The people of Calare deserve better, and I will do everything in my power to deliver genuine and fair representation for this wonderful community.”
