ABOUT MARK

Mark is a true Queenslander, currently living in Thuringowa, North Queensland. He moved to Townsville 28 years ago, chasing work, lifestyle and a place to call home. 

Mark spent 16 years working at Queensland Nickel and found the challenges and experience interesting. He enjoyed the time spent there, with many happy memories. He was disappointed to learn the fate of an integral part of the local community, closing down after generations of locals learning their trades so close to home, without having to fly out to work in remote areas. 

Mark currently owns and operates a flooring business and understands the struggles of business owners in the current local economy. He spends a lot of time in people’s homes, talking about the issues surrounding the Townsville district. Mark has listened to many people and their concerns and has decided it is time for him to see if he can make a difference. 

Mark has been watching Pauline Hanson’s One Nation and feels it is the party that was the most in touch with a lot of the grass roots of the people of Queensland. The people are tired of the same old policies and broken promises of the old parties. Mark thinks they’re out of touch with the average voter and are no longer listening. Pauline Hanson’s One Nation, as the slogan suggests…“People before Politics”. 

Mark is passionate that the government should stop public asset sales and focus on having state owned essential services such as power, water and gas. Privatization of these services are not doing the locals any favours, just lining the pockets of big business, often taking their profits out of the country, where it does Australians no good at all. 

Mark also thinks the water issues for Townsville and surrounding areas have been put in the ‘too hard’ basket by successive state and local governments, leaving the area with no true solution in the near future. 

Mark knows there are grave concerns for the safety and well-being of the local community with crime getting out of hand. He believes there are policies that can work but also believes there is no one solution…it must be a combination of enforcing the current laws and ensuring the police have resources available to do their job properly, with confidence their efforts aren’t wasted by the courts.
