Candidate for Flynn Electorate (QLD)
Richard Love proudly ran for Katter's Australian Party in the 2013 federal elections and was subsequently a member of the KAP Queensland executive where he held the title of Director of Policies for 12 months.
Richard emigrated to Australia from Scotland with his wife 27 years ago and has two adult children. He owns and operates a free range egg farm in beautiful Bucca, located just outside Bundaberg.
Richard is a trade qualified carpenter/joiner as well as a farmer and has been self employed for most of his life.
"I truly believe that if we can't get a viable change in government then Australia will be finished as a free and lucky country. That's why I keep putting myself out there hoping to make a change for the better."
If elected, Richard has promised to focus on the issues that are currently affecting the people of Flynn, with the more pressing issues being:
- Coal seam gas
- Coal mines
Richard has vowed to protect prime agricultural land in the electorate of Flynn by stopping the collection of poisonous coal seam gas through fracking. When it comes to coal seam gas, Richard says "no fracking way!".
In regards to coal mines Richard has shown his support for the infastructure and money the mines bring but has adamantly taken a stand against the mining of coal on or around residential land, claiming that "coal mining and towns don't mix".
