Rebecca Thompson for Hume
Rebecca Thompson is an experienced public servant and mum of two young boys keen to make a difference for the community of Hume.
She’s served in both state and federal positions for more than 13 years, assisting thousands of people. Rebecca is passionate about helping her fellow Australians and fully understands the frustration people experience when dealing with government rules, regulations, fees, and heavy-handed bureaucracy.
“I’ve tried to work inside the system to improve it, offering practical feedback to managers and executives. It comes to very little, so I appreciate people’s frustrations. Australians want to be heard. We want to be treated as people, not inconveniences for self-important unelected bureaucrats.
“I’ve also reached out to politicians about these issues, and it’s come to even less. I’ve never got a personal reply or response from any of them. I think our elected representatives should do better, but the major parties don’t seem to care. We need a better sort of representative who works for their constituents—not the bureaucrats.”
Rebecca is going to be a great advocate for reforming Australia’s family law and child support system.
“Pauline Hanson has been an inspiration in her efforts to fix this broken system. She’s experienced it herself, so she understands what parents and their children can go through. I’ve experienced it too. Pauline’s managed to have some changes made that make family law courts run more efficiently, but there’s more work to be done and I want to see it through.”
Rebecca believes in the Australian ethos of a fair go.
“I’m standing for One Nation in Hume because Pauline Hanson puts Australia and Australians first, and so do I. We need to ensure foreign-owned multinationals operating in Australia pay their fair share of tax by moving to a transaction-based system. We need to reduce immigration to sustainable levels so we don’t congest our major cities, and we also need to take some heat out of the housing and accommodation crisis.
“And we most definitely need a Royal Commission into Australian governments’ management of the COVID-19 pandemic. The expert advice which governments have relied upon to justify lockdowns that shut down whole cities, imprisoned people in their homes, and destroyed countless jobs and businesses must be brought to light. We must learn what worked and what didn’t to make sure we’re better prepared for the next inevitable pandemic.
“I will always fight to protect the rights and freedoms of the Australian people.”
