When Federal politician Pauline Hanson sought a new direction for the West Australian branch of her party, her first choice was Colin Tincknell.
Now, as the WA Leader of Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party, Colin has successfully gained endorsement from electors in the South-West Region for a seat in the State Parliament’s Legislative Council.
The region covers a broad coastal strip from Mandurah to Albany, including towns such as Margaret River, Busselton, Collie and Manjimup.
Colin, married with 4 children, sees the opportunity to serve his State as a serious honour that brings with it enormous responsibility, and he believes his business, professional and life experiences warrant his selection for the seat on March 11.
Colin will bring to the role his highly developed personal engagement and communication skills; a belief in the immense power of mutually respectful discussion and debate; and a steadfast commitment to bring ‘popular’ political influence, particularly from sections of the community and media, back from the left to the centre of the political spectrum.
“Politicians must recognise our communities have totally run out of patience with the seemingly endless displays of arrogance, verbal abuse, promises, broken promises, blame and excuses,” Colin says. “We’ve got to move on from that toxic, negative space.”
There’s every likelihood Colin Tincknell’s track record will help him succeed:
He is a highly qualified and experienced senior sustainability and social performance professional, evidenced through his 18 years’ working in Aboriginal affairs and corporate communications/social responsibility; 12 years in the extractives industry; and as a stakeholder engagement and cultural diversity specialist with international experience.
As the Party’s WA State Leader and the elected Member for the South-West Region seat in the Legislative Council, Colin is fully focused on explaining and delivering the local policies the Party espouses.
