I shall be following up with the relevant services to ensure that this goes ahead soon.

In light of the recent legal proceedings and controversies regarding local council and state government figures -

Does the (alleged) corruption alter your thoughts on the way you would vote in local and state elections?

In your opinion do the current representatives work in the best interest of the region and constituents?

Counting is now effectively finalised for the seat of Blair -
I have polled 4.01% of the vote.
An amazing result as an Independent - polling behind the major parties and ahead of the minors.

There is no doubt that with your support we have assisted in making the seat of Blair marginal.

I shall continue advocating for certain issues relating to Brisbane and Ipswich regions.

The demographic in Blair is changing. It is tired of the lack of effective community representation at state and federal level as well as the previous local government corruption.

This region shall be looking for action - to see it flourish rather than flounder as it has for the previous several terms of governance as a safe seat at federal and state level.

View on Facebook

Thanks to all for your support, messages, encouragement and compliments of a campaign done with integrity, hard work and genuine intent to extract benefit for our communities.

There are some special people in this community, my family and friends to whom I extend my sincerest thanks - the polling shows an amazing result for an Independent with no funding.

Let’s hope the current MP has heard that this region has had enough of being taken for granted...

The power of an Independent.
This community needs representation, not political ideology and nil interest in our region.
The major parties have failed us and the minor parties are focused on fringe issues.

I’m here to fight for what is right and just for my local community.

I support good policy and aim to extract benefit for our region from government and improve legislative integrity in parliament.

This includes foiling the duopoly held by the major parties and corporate donors to bring transparency in government.

I am not beholden to political party agenda and I am proud to represent you and be YOUR voice in Canberra.

These articles are from QT 15th May 2019

Great to meet recent arrivals to Blair - all of whom have started their own enterprises- and employing job seekers and investing in the area, after gaining experience in other parts of Australia.

It was also very heartwarming to see how the growing Punjabi (Indian) community within Blair keeps in touch with their roots and values- supporting older community members and loving life here embracing life in our community.

There was a common understanding of the benefit that an Independent in Blair can provide locally and at the national level for all residents in Blair regardless of the party that forms government.
