ROSSYMONE Senior High School graduate Don Huggins will contest the seat of Bateman for the Australian Christians, vowing to bring honesty, integrity, diligence, fairness, openness and common sense to government if elected.
The 57-year-old is a qualified electrician and holds a Bachelor of Business Finance and Accounting.
He is divorced with a 14-year-old daughter and has spent the past two decades working mainly in the health sector as a finance and administration manager and executive officer.
“Since my retirement and family breakup, I became interested in politics and how Christian values and morals can be returned to our schools, government and legal system,” he said.
“I believe that to have a successful, honourable and happy society, we need to have successful, honourable and happy families, because families are the building blocks of our society.”
Mr Huggins said Christian values and morals should be the cornerstone of society.
He also wants to see government support for the wave energy industry, perjury laws introduced to the WA Family Court and a greater emphasis on ensuring companies and corporations pay their fair share of tax.
Mr Huggins wants to see greater scrutiny of the Perth Freight Link project before it proceeds, a crackdown on increasing private health insurance prices and a limit placed on the salary and bonuses of chief executives and senior management.
