ACT Democrats Senate team complete with announcement of No. 2 candidate

The Australian Democrats in the ACT today completed their Senate team when they announced their latest Senate candidate for the 2010 Federal election.

The No. 2 Senate candidate is Anthony David. Anthony is an IT specialist who has lived and raised his family in Canberra over the last 29 years. He has participated in the community life in Canberra in areas such as local area planning, reconciliation, transport and the environment. Anthony is particularly concerned about the failure of the Federal parliament to put a price on carbon emissions. He has recently graduated with honours from the ANU, modelling ocean carbon response over ice age cycles.

Anthony joins Darren Churchill as an endorsed candidate to complete the Australian Democrats ACT Senate team.

The Australian Democrats are finalising their candidates nationally.

“The past two years have shown the Senate is in need of the Australian Democrats” declared Anthony David. “I want to restore a voice of common sense and constructive legislative scrutiny to the upper house of our country.”

“My passion is to see a fair Australia, a sustainable economy and a social structure that looks after the vulnerable and enables its citizens to achieve their potential. Australia needs the revocation of the “NT Intervention” and the implementation of the recommendations of the “Little Children are Sacred” inquiry.”

“Being mindful of Australia’s disproportionate carbon emissions, we need an urgent investment in modern transport infrastructure.” said Anthony “I am also pleased that mental health has become a prominent issue in the media. I want to see an effective response by the next government and I will support innovative programs to improve our understanding and response to mental health issues.”

“Effective education at all ages is the cornerstone of our civil society. I am particularly concerned about the shortage of science and mathematics teachers. I want to see people trained in these fields take up the profession, especially primary teaching where the foundations are set. The Federal government has a vital role in the development and deployment of these resources.”

I want to work for the good of Canberrans and the people of the Jervis Bay Territory.” Anthony concluded.
