Walter Stragan is an award-winning accountant with a passion for reducing the costs of living and doing business. Born in Melbourne to Ukrainian parents, Walter loves the opportunities that come with living, learning, and working in Australia.

“Electricity, water, petrol, groceries, rent – the costs of living are skyrocketing and governments obsessed with the power they’ve wielded over us during this damned pandemic are doing nothing. Owning or renting a home has fallen out of reach for many Australian families. It shouldn’t be this way and it doesn’t have to be.”

A family man with two kids, Walter grew up in Melbourne’s western suburbs delivering newspapers to help his working-class family with a bit of extra income while he gained his accountant’s diploma. Since 1989 he’s run his own business, which in 2016 gained a Multicultural Impact Award.

“I’ve worked on the books for a lot of businesses and one thing has stood out all this time – governments are increasingly getting in the way, placing more and more administrative and cost burdens on businesses. It’s especially hard on small businesses. We need governments to get out of the way and let businesses do what they do best – create Australian jobs and grow the economy.

“The space where governments should be intervening is with foreign-owned multinationals operating in Australia while paying little or no tax. I’m standing for One Nation in Melbourne because Pauline Hanson is putting Australia and Australians first. We won’t stop fighting for a transaction-based tax system on multinational resource companies to ensure Australians receive a fair return for the exploitation of our resources.”

Walter has also been dismayed by the impact of COVID-19 lockdowns and mandates on jobs, businesses, and families, and the threat they have represented to the individual rights and freedoms that are some of the most important foundations of Australian democracy.

“After two years of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s past time for governments to step back from the control they’ve been exerting on all of us. It’s alarming how quickly and easily Australian governments curtailed our rights and freedoms. It’s been disturbing to see how much they’ve relished it, and it’s frightening to see how reluctant they are to give it up. I’m backing Pauline Hanson’s call for a Royal Commission into the management of the pandemic by Australian governments, both state and federal. I’ll always fight for the rights and freedoms of the Australian people.”
