Tyler Walsh for Cowan
Tyler Walsh has called Perth’s northern suburbs home his entire life. Despite his young age, Tyler has had experience working in retail and as a sole trader offering tutoring services to students across Perth. Currently, Tyler works as a freelance food delivery driver alongside studying full time completing his final year of his master’s degree in electrical engineering.
Tyler already has years of political campaigning experience. At the 2019 federal election, Tyler contested the seat of Moore for Pauline Hanson’s One Nation, making him one of One Nation’s youngest candidates to date. He also ran for a legislative council seat in the 2021 Western Australian state election. Since July 2021, Tyler has served as a member of the state executive of Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Western Australia.
During his 2019 Campaign for Moore, Tyler focused on the issues of reducing unemployment, lowering the cost of living, and upholding freedom of speech.
"These same bread-and-butter issues are still impacting Australians today, arguably even more so. Since the 2019 election, Australia has been impacted by several major historical events, including the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine crisis."
Tyler understands the implications that COVID-19 mandates and restrictions have on people’s personal freedoms. These mandates have affected the operation of small businesses and have caused many essential workers to either leave their jobs or be forced into compliance. That is why Tyler strongly supports Pauline Hanson’s calls for a Royal Commission into the nation’s response to COVID-19.
The Russia-Ukraine crisis has resulted in a dramatic rise in fuel prices, which consequently raises the cost of living for everyday Australians. While Tyler welcomes the federal government’s temporary reduction to the fuel excise in response to Pauline’s open letter to our leaders which was co-signed by thousands of Australians, Tyler believes that more needs to be done to keep fuel prices low in the long term.
"As a delivery driver who uses their own vehicle for work, I know the impact that our fuel prices have on families, businesses, and the economy. Josh Frydenberg’s commitment to halving the fuel excise from 44 cents per litre to 22 cents per litre is only a temporary band-aid solution to entice voters in time for the upcoming election. One Nation’s energy policy of restoring Australia’s 90-day fuel security reserve and restoring Australia’s capacity to refine our own fuel is a viable long-term plan to combatting the fuel crisis."
The seat of Cowan is an interesting one because it is very marginal, and both the Liberal and Labor candidates are incumbent members. Tyler strives to present himself as a fresh alternative to the major parties.
"Since the second world war, Australia has been in an endless cycle of coalition and Labor governments. It is time that the forgotten Australians have some true representation in our parliament. My sole responsibility as the Candidate for Cowan is to represent the interests of the people of my electorate, and I will do exactly that if elected."
