Ian is very passionate about the future of Geelong, his city, and his country of Australia. “We are at a crossroads, he says, we recently commemorated ANZAC day to remember the fallen. We must never forget the efforts of our forefathers who fought to give us the values we cherish, those which are too easily undermined or discarded”.
Ian believes the values of Australian culture have been built on immigration, of those willing to call Australia home, wanting to succeed and wiling to work to that goal, all doing their part to make one Australia. His aim would be to keep it that way by choosing immigrants that want to integrate into Australian way of life, share Australia’s values, reaping their reward for their own hard work, and respecting the national heritage that everyone can share.
“The Rise Up Australia Party seeks to preserve the Christian/Judaeo heritage we have and advance the nation with sound policies and protect the values that identity us as Australian”,says Ian.
