Introducing the candidate


I’m Darren Churchill, the Australian Democrats candidate for the seat of Fraser in the ACT. I’m a part time Boxfit instructor and have taught in secondary schools in both NSW and the ACT.
Now, more than ever, strong voice of the progressive centre is needed in the seat of Fraser. Someone who fights for what is right and provides a balanced approach in the parliament. People are rightly suspicious of the government’s treatment of asylum seekers and other migrants and of the politics of exclusion practiced against people who don’t fit some imagined idea of normality in relation to race, religion or gender. The increased powers of surveillance and law enforcement in the name of freedom and without accountability or explanation are of great concern to me.

As the Democrats candidate, I offer fair representation and the opportunity to participate in an inclusive, environmentally sustainable and economically responsible Australia.

This post is an edited version of a shorter profile of me published in The Chronicle (Canberra) on October 23, 2007.
