Tony Pettitt for Macquarie
Tony has recently retired from his own business in the heavy transport industry. He has an associate diploma in engineering and has lived in the Northwest of Sydney most of his life, owning property in the Hawkesbury since the late 1980s.
He's tired of the two-party preferred system and says, "Over the course of a lifetime, Liberal and Labor have dominated our parliament. At election time, they always promise it will be better than the bloke who they replaced the last election when the government was changed, who previously replaced them at the election before that, and so on.
"At every election, they brag how they are better than each other, and over the past 70 years, our economy and our standard of living has become far more difficult, with the price of affordable housing versus the income ratio of a generation ago.
"Recycling is fine, but our parliament is full of over recycled rubbish politicians. It has been so diluted it no longer represents the original product. It is time to drain the swamp, clean it out, and replace them with new blood and ideas.”
Tony backs Pauline Hanson's One Nation and the party's policies on taxation, old-age pensioners, law, manufacturing, agriculture, and foreign investment and ownership.
If elected, Tony will push for flood mitigation downstream of Warragamba, and carefully assess dams on the Grose and Colo Rivers.
Tony strongly supports controlled hazard reduction to safeguard against the threat of bush fires and would address over-development and migration/population which impact real estate prices and the cost of living.
"When I left school I did an apprenticeship in the oil industry, I served 10 years in the NSW public service and spoke out against waste, mismanagement, and corruption. I don’t back down from a fight when I see injustice. Like Pauline Hanson, if I am elected, I will act in the best interest of the Australian people and leave no stone unturned."
