Former Goulburn boy runs for Democrats

FORMER Goulburn man Darren Churchill has been endorsed as the 
Australian Democrats candidate for Fraser, ACT. 

The electorate neighbours Goulburn's electorate of Hume to the south.

Originally from Goulburn, Mr Churchill, 43, now lives in Kaleen where he 
works part time as a Boxfit instructor.

As an Anglican, in the liberal-catholic tradition, Mr Churchill has strong 
views on human rights, equality, social justice and inclusiveness.  
Mr Churchill is a vegetarian and is greatly concerned about animal welfare 
and labelling of food.

Mr Churchill is a strong opponent of an ID Card and is concerned about 
the erosion of our freedoms in recent times.

He said he was standing because "a strong voice of the progressive centre 
is needed in Australian politics".

"Someone who will fight for what is right and provide a balanced approach 
in the parliament," 
Mr Churchill said.

"The Australian Democrats are a party that does offer balance and  
sensible approach, and isn't answerable to the interest groups of big 
business, big unions or other powerful lobbyists with a particular agenda. 

"The evenhanded, fair approach of the Democrats is a great attraction 
to me.

"Our poor country is hurting from the divisive politics of exclusion and fear."

Mr Churchill is a vegetarian and is greatly concerned about animal welfare 
and labelling of food.

He was active as a volunteer in the campaign to reinstate South Sydney 
Rabbitohs to the NRL, 
and was active in the Canberra Cosmos and Belconnen Blue Devils Supporters Groups.  

He is also a strong opponent of an ID Card and is concerned about the erosion 
of our freedoms.
