  E-news - Issue #5 VOTE 1 IN COLUMN R Every voter needs to know that our kids need their help on voting day.  You’ll find an un-named box in column R above the line on the large white senate ballot paper. Mark it with the number 1, then go on to choose your own preferences after that. As Saturday’s election draws closer, more and more people have been asking me how they can help get me to Canberra so I can start holding our politicians to account. My first response is ask them to give children and integrity a voice and to vote for me in Column R. Make no mistake – I’m in the fight of my life and every vote that comes my way is one vote [...]

E-news – Issue #4

E-news - Issue #4   ON THE ROAD - PART 1 I’ve heard some politicians privately bemoan having to travel far and wide during election campaigns but you’ll never hear me complaining. I’m relishing the chance this week to visit so many of Queensland’s wonderful communities and, more importantly, get to chat with the locals who make them so great. From Cairns to the Sunshine Coast and countless stops between, I’m listening to what regional Queenslanders think about the state of Federal politics and their concerns have reinforced why I’ve accepted this challenge. People just to want believe again! Keep an eye on my travels HERE and make sure you drop by to say hello.   A MAYORAL ENDORSEMENT It’s not every day a mayor invites you to breakfast and such invitations [...]

E-news - Issue #3 FIGHT FOR OUR KIDS As these newsletters highlight, I want to represent Queensland in the Federal Senate for many reasons - but child protection will always be my number one priority. It breaks my heart that after fighting so hard for children and families for more than 20 years, our politicians still fail to treat the harm being inflicted on our most vulnerable souls as the national emergency it is. If elected, I will push harder than ever for the major parties to support a Royal Commission into the family law system and the nationwide introduction of Child Advocacy Centres that put the best interests of the child at the centre of the entire legal process.  READ MORE A DISAPPOINTING DAY I should no longer be [...]

HETTY JOHNSTON – e-news #2 DOWNLOAD E-news - Issue #2 NATURAL CHOICE More than 20 years after I successfully led a grassroots war to stop a toll road being built through South-East Queensland forests and a koala habitat, my passion for the environment remains as strong as ever. That’s why I’m so excited that my potential election to the Federal Senate would allow me to make a real difference in protecting the natural wonders that make our country so special. As my Climate & Energy Policy shows, I will push for the koala to be entered on the endangered species lists and for the Great Barrier Reef’s protection and preservation to be a “priority consideration” of every project impacting the Queensland coast.

Previous Supporters call for help

  I'm reaching out to everyone who has supported me in my child protection and community lobbying work over the years to ask you to get involved with my campaign as an Independent Senate Candidate in Queensland in the upcoming federal election. Our family law system has consistently failed to protect children from sexual assault and violence and, despite 22 years of knocking on the doors of parliament, our politicians have not made our children safer. Now I need your help to bring these issues to the forefront of public debate, and right into the halls and conscience of Canberra - everyday. Volunteer There are many ways you can support the campaign, from helping out at polling booths, following and sharing on social media, to distributing bumper stickers or [...]
