Recently we had the pleasure of interviewing Rick Gurnett, the Katter Australia Party Candidate for your electorate of Warrego. A passionate advocate for your region, Rick is contesting the seat to ensure “help our regional and rural economies grow.”
“To stop our declining rural and regional populations, we need bold ideas like an airforce training centre in Charleville, a rural bank to safeguard our farmer’s livelihoods, and investment in local industries (like the Dalby Ethanol Refinery) with a commitment from the Australian Government to ALWAYS support AUSTRALIAN COMPANIES first.“
Raising a family in southwest Queensland has given Rick an insight to how important it is that we have MPs that are fighting for the regions to give people west of the range the same access to health, aged care, education and other essential services as those in the South East corner enjoy.
“My passion is agriculture and I have always worked towards owning property and providing food and fibre for our great country.”
He has become increasingly concerned about the high-handed decisions legislated by the major parties which have eroded people’s rights and freedoms.
“This is the reason I have put myself forward as part of the KAP to right these wrongs and get our country back on track.”
Shooters Union is endorsing Rick as our pick for the candidate most likely to bring about meaningful and lasting change in the Warrego region.
