Our Candidates

 Here are our candidates for the Senate in New South Wales.

  

Karl Houseman

New South Wales Senate Candidate

Karl Houseman 

Growing up in Western Sydney and living on acreage as a child have given Karl Houseman an appreciation for Australia’s outdoors.  He’s been a sporting shooter since he was 19 years old.

He understands that farmers are doing it tough because of over-regulation and myopic policies of city-centric politicians and bureaucrats. Karl doesn’t want to see the extreme Greens ruin our way of life because they want to force their ideology onto others.

Karl is running as the lead New South Wales Senate candidate for the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party because he wants to stop the attacks on sporting shooting, and ensure that recreational fishers have fair access to prime fishing spots.  He also believes that farmers need a fair price for what they grow, through breaking up the monopolies on farm gate produce prices.


  

Peter Johnson

New South Wales Senate Candidate

 Peter Johnson

 

Peter Johnson has a long history representing recreational fishers, both in the community and the media.  He’s a regular on radio 2SM’s Hi-Tide fishing and boating program and is heavily involved in fishing peak bodies across the state. 

He was a trap and line fisherman for several years out of Sydney, and is a life member of the NSW Fishing Clubs Association. 

Growing up from a family of dairy farmers and orchardists, Peter knows the issues facing our farmers.  From his work in logistics he hears of farmers struggles every day from the people who transport their produce.  He knows that abandoning our farmers will have impacts that will resonate through our whole economy.

Peter is running as a New South Wales Senate candidate for the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party because he fiercely opposes locking-out recreational fishers through the introduction of more marine parks.  

He says: “No political party other than the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party has ever been a friend of fishers at the grassroots level.  Other so-called ‘pro-fishing parties’ have either quickly forgotten their constituents or not had the fighting spirit to properly represent them.”
