A message from David

Political campaigns require a huge amount of resources, even more for Independents who have no party machinery to support their candidacy.
But political donation laws in federal politics need an overhaul. Currently, there are very few rules and very poor transparency about who can donate and how much. It shouldn't be up to individual candidates to work out how to navigate the most ethical way to manage this.
This election, I made the choice not to accept donations from a range of companies and big businesses including those in fossil fuels, tobacco, junk food, property development and gambling. This meant I knocked back a number of large donations.
If I'm successful, I will be pushing for the best practice on political donations, informed by experts, to be implemented across the board. We need to make sure politicians are influenced by their constituents, not their donors and that's what I'll be dedicating myself to.
