Tyler Walsh is an electrical engineering student at the University of Western Australia. He was born in the Moore suburb of Joondalup and is the youngest ever candidate to represent Pauline Hanson’s One Nation.
Tyler has lived in the Perth northern suburbs throughout his life and grew up in a family of three children. His mother and father have established careers in education and law enforcement respectively. Graduating as Dux of Irene McCormack Catholic College, Tyler’s school years were a mix of music, sport and leadership. Tyler, along with a team of five others, pitched an idea for a business start-up as part of the inaugural Curtin University Just Start IT competition in 2014. Their pitch, judged by a panel including executives from BankWest and Microsoft, won the competition.
In his working life, Tyler launched his own tutoring service whilst still in high school and has been a self-employed tutor ever since. Tyler has tutored across Perth’s northern suburbs and has helped students ranging from primary school to university level in mathematics and science.
“Even in a simple small business like tutoring, I’ve seen how hard the government is making it to just get on with the job. We need to make it easier for small, local businesses to get on in this country.”
“One reason I’m proud to be a part of the One Nation team is because of our small to medium business tax cuts, lowering the company tax rate for businesses on the small end of town and helping small to medium enterprise hire more people.”
Tyler is passionate about education and committed to sharing his knowledge with others. He demonstrates this in not only in his work as a successful tutor, but as an active volunteer of several organisations.
Tyler is part of the Schools Outreach Team of the UWA chapter of Engineers Without Borders where he conducts workshops on sustainable engineering to students across Perth. He also considers himself honored to have experiences tutoring and coordinating programs for Teach Learn Grow, a non-for-profit organisation which aims to bridge the education gap between rural and metropolitan areas.
Tyler has a wealth of experience in collaboration and teamwork, most recently with his experience as the Marketing Director of UWA’s Electronic Music Appreciation Society (EMAS).
Home to many families and small businesses, Tyler believes that improving infrastructure and properly managing population levels are high priorities for the electorate. Joondalup Health Campus, one of Perth’s major hospitals, was forced to declare a ‘code yellow’ leading up to Christmas in 2018 due to it being at full patient capacity with ambulance diversion.
“Australia’s population reached 25 million people in 2018, 33 years earlier than predicted by a forecast two decades ago. If population growth in the northern suburbs follows this trend, this will likely result in an unbearable strain on infrastructure in Moore.”
Tyler’s vision for the electorate and the wider nation is for public services to be accessible to everyone and immigration into Australia being set at a sustainable level. On the topic of leadership in politics Tyler says:
“It is no surprise that many Australians have lost faith in federal politics; the last decade has seen Australia go through five diﬀerent prime ministers. The people I’m listening to believe politicians aren’t listening to us anymore.”
Tyler wants to see stability and accountability brought back into Parliament.
“Despite the warnings publicised by media about minor parties causing chaos in the parliament, most would agree the only disorder and turmoil has come from Labor and the Liberal parties.”
“While One Nation have held the balance-of-power in both the Federal and Western Australian parliaments, our efforts have been commended by both Liberal and Labor Governments for taking a balanced approach to legislation.”
Tyler has chosen to stand up for all Australians as a One Nation candidate because he sees One Nation as a party that represents the interests of everyone. As a loyal representative for Moore and wider Australia, Tyler will hold people in positions of power accountable if the interests of constituents are not being met.
“I am willing to fight for issues in parliament that other politicians may try to ‘brush under the carpet’. Politicians are servants to the people who elected them, therefore it is imperative that Australians are consulted in regards to important issues.”
Pauline Hanson’s One Nation is a party made up of people with the guts to say what you’re thinking. Tyler plans to be exactly that if chosen as the representative for Moore.
One Nation has made some great achievements in the Senate and in Western Australia State Parliament since the 2016 federal election. Tyler hopes the people of Moore will see him as the best choice to get this country back on track as a member of the One Nation team.
