On Friday I decided to stand for the House of Representatives in the seat of Solomon.
It’s not an easy choice. I am a student: during the election period I have three assignments due and four exams to sit. I am in Western Australia, Solomon covers Darwin and its surrounds. I am standing for the Liberty & Democracy Party, which is a small voice in Australian politics.
I quite like the incumbent, David Tollner. I worked for him for a year. But David is John Howard’s man in Darwin. I think that Darwin, the NT and the country would be better served by the LDP’s policies, not the Coalition’s.
Ken thinks I’m crazy to do this. So do my family. They might be right, but I’m doing it because it’s the right thing to do. It’s too easy to sit on the sidelines and say how it ought to be done, rather than to get up and try and do it. There is no better time to push for a free, just and prosperous nation than now.
Soon I will have a website at chester4solomon.com, but in the meantime if you want to help out, please email me: [email protected]
