From his humble beginnings growing up in a close-knit family, Chris worked hard to become a commercial airline pilot. Although his job took him around the world, his heart has always remained firmly in Australia.
Growing up, Chris recalls that it was his parents who inspired in him a sense of right and wrong and helped him discover his purpose in life. His father, a policeman, and his mother with her faith and gentle guidance, together provided the foundation for his life. "As the middle child of three boys, and with a handicapped younger brother, I realised early that the world didn’t revolve around me."
Chris entered the world of aviation on his own, without any 'hand up'. He persisted in achieving his ultimate goal of becoming an airline captain. "I remember my navigation instructor saying one evening, you're not giving up are you?"
Chris recognises that the mess that politicians have led Australia into is not a consequence of deliberate malintent, but the dissociation of the political elite from the people. "This is a separation after years of the 'she’ll be right, mate' attitude and has led to a gradual decline of this great nation's ability to stand on its own two feet and, more importantly, defend itself from unfair criticism. In short, I believe we have not been paying attention."
One Nation's policy to push for the introduction of a Citizens Initiated Referenda is something Chris will get behind. It will enable Australian citizens to put forward legislation or a referendum question without waiting for politicians to listen and act. Chris wants to put the people’s voice back into the parliamentary debate by replacing our current ruling career politicians with people from the mainstream general public.
"That is a true representative democracy," he says.
"I believe in this great country, its people, and the values our constitution is based upon. One Nation's policies uphold these values and they encourage and welcome compatible cultural principles that work for Australians.
"As a citizen concerned for the future of this great nation, I'm standing for election in the seat of McEwen. I take my responsibilities seriously and this country needs all the help it can get. I offer my life experience, morality, and good judgement to the parliamentary debate, and if elected I will devote my professional life to it.
"Let’s do something positive for Australia before it's too late to turn back. There are serious signs we may lose civil liberties that we might never regain if we don’t address our priorities as a nation. Good governance requires good people. We must safeguard the future and turn back from these reckless ideologies that have been allowed to flourish in public debate without the voice of the people being properly heard. We must enter the conversation and have our say."
