One Nation's Maranoa candidate announced
AS A farmer and small business owner, Rosemary Moulden understands the issues facing rural communities.
She hopes to give the people of Maranoa a voice as the One Nation candidate at the federal election.
"The people of my electorate, Maranoa, feel very neglected,” she said.
"They feel like the people in the cities are very out of touch with the people in the rural areas.
"I just feel like people want to talk, they want to vent their spleen about things that go on, they get quite cross that the rural area is ignored.”
Mrs Moulden believes regional communities have a lot of fixed costs, like people in inner-city areas, but they lose their income very quickly through drought, floods and drops in cattle prices.
She said rural people suffer not only from unpredictable weather and livestock price fluctuations, but they also feel government services are not attuned to the true needs of rural life and conditions.
Mrs Moulden runs a small homoeopathy business in Warwick, is chairwoman of Warwick Rotary and vice president of Zonta, where she focussed on youth programs and women's help initiatives.
She said One Nation policies would address issues like farming and water, climate change, higher education, supporting pensioners, tackling the ICE drug epidemic, family law, medicinal cannabis and politicians and their perks.
"One Nation policies tend to cover a wide area, they're very sensible - everyone that reads them tells me that they're sensible policies,” Mrs Moulden said.
