ABOUT STEVEN

Steven Ford Steven’s family association with Nicklin area dates back to the 1890s when his great-grandmother started a maternity hospital near Woombye. His grandfather drew a Soldier Settlement block near Kandanga after the First World War and farmed there for many years. Steven’s grand-daughter was born in Selangor Hospital in Nambour, and Steven and his wife Carole moved to the Sunshine Coast seven years ago. 

Steven grew up on a cattle property near Miles, and went to boarding school in Brisbane at “Churchie”. He started working on oil rigs during vacations while he was at University in Toowoomba, studying Accountancy and Business Studies. Steven has spent the past 35 years growing businesses across Australia, S-E Asia, North Africa and The Middle East. His strategy and leadership experience spans managing change, creative thinking and implementation, process management and building reputation and trust through client satisfaction and performance. Steven’s Industry experience spans operations, engineering, design and manufacture of equipment, transport and logistics. He has a reputation for “doing what he says he will do”, for improving operational performance and efficiency and delivering projects on time and within budget. 

Steven grew up in a conservative household with strong National Party values and ideals. At University he was the Branch Chairman and on the State Executive of the Young National Party. Steven’s has worked in different countries with different religions, cultures and politics and he appreciates how lucky we are to live in a society where we have the freedom to question our leaders and our policies but he strongly opposes the idea that we should change our behaviour, our language, our laws and ideals to placate a minority. 

Steven’s over-riding belief is that we are Australians and everyone who wants to share the benefits of living here must acknowledge and accept our language, our laws, our freedoms and our culture. We must be one Nation, with one Flag, with one Head of State, and with one standard of law. As an MP Steven will work to enshrine those values in our state.

Steven is a strong advocate of making Queensland a decentralized State, where adequate water and cheap, reliable energy encourage the growth of communities involved in agriculture, mining, and manufacturing; where our exports allow us to build an operating surplus that ensures growth and continuous improvement in our State; where our education system encourages and rewards excellence; where our hospital system is staffed by well-trained, competent nurses and doctors; and where we can all afford the high standard of living we would like to enjoy. Steven is a firm believer in drought proofing Queensland and a supporter of the Bradfield Scheme to achieve this. 

Steven believes successive State Governments have neglected the Sunshine Coast and especially the hinterland electorates of Nicklin and Glasshouse. He is a strong advocate for improving the road and rail networks and services across the Sunshine Coast. Steven is determined to promote neglected traffic projects and see them through to completion across Nicklin Steven is passionate about maintaining the availability of all public medical services witin the electorate of Nicklin and ensuring the Nambour General Hospital continues to offer a full suite of services.

Steven has concerns with youth unemployment, the spread of drugs particularly ICE, the rise in crime and the lack of respect for our law enforcement agencies. He believes all communities deserve properly manned and resourced permanenet Police Stations and will endeavour to raise the bar in law and order for all communities. On a broader scale Steven will work to ensure we have a Judicial system that supports our law enforcement agencies, where penalties are a deterrent rather than a minor discomfort, where the consequence of breaking the law is borne by the responsible parties and politically motivated groups cannot tie up beneficial projects in green tape.

Steven will work to make the Nicklin hinterland an integral and important part of the Sunshine Coast Development Plan. We have to ensure the viability and vitality of our regional towns and centres and Nicklin cannot be the poor cousin to the thriving beach developments. Steven is passionate about making our electorate a place of opportunity and growth and a safe and secure place to live.
