“Help Me Help You. The Peoples’ Politician.”
In light of an unstable political landscape in Australia, it’s reassuring to know there’s an aspiring politician on the horizon, that hopes to one day give a voice to those who need to be heard.
His name is Mark Dickenson, a hard working father of three, that like many is disillusioned by the state of play in Australian politics. His passion is to focus on real issues that affect Australians such as health & support services for the sick, disabled and domestic violence victims just to name a few.
Mr Dickenson is no stranger to adversity himself, having a son with Autism, a sister with Cystic Fibrosis and a father with mental illness and Dementia. These real life experiences have highlighted the need for better support services for minority groups. According to Mr Dickenson, “these groups are being left behind thanks to austerity and an inept government, and the reality that two women are dying in Australia each week as a consequence of domestic violence is unacceptable. It’s time for action, not just words”
The plan is for Mr Dickenson to run for a seat in the Senate at the next federal election. In the meantime, he’ll be spreading the word about what he stands for and expanding his already impressive reach via social media and other media platforms. In his words “winning a seat would be a real honour and privilege. People want a clear plan for the future and most importantly want to see that plan in action”
