Nick Fardell keen to provide WA more of a voice
Nationals WA senate candidate Nick Fardell visited Bunbury last week during what he described as a very long job interview speaking to people all across the State.
Mr Fardell has clocked up close to 60,000km since declaring his intention to become the first Nationals WA senator in more than 40 years.
“It has been good to travel from Broome to Esperance and every place in between,” he said.
“There are some ripping people in WA, but at the end of the day a lot of them have tuned out Federal politicians because they do nothing for them.
“I think people come around once you tell them you’ve actually worked for a living and you’re not a career politician.”
He said a common thread raised throughout his trip around WA was that people felt “ripped off” because nobody was standing up for the State.
“One of the surprising things to me was the amount of migrants who wanted to talk to me about guaranteeing food production,” he said.
“A lot of the migrant communities are worried the culinary skills and culture they came with will be lost if vegan terrorists take away aspects of food production.”
