Kirralie Smith - Senate Candidate for New South Wales
Kirralie is an outstanding candidate - energetic, young, articulate and passionate. "I am a proud and passionate Australian. I spent the first half of my life growing up in suburban Sydney, enjoying a wide range of sporting activities and always enjoying the sense of safe community my parents worked hard to provide. I love all things coastal and the beach is where I go to re-energise and refresh.
As housewife, mother, small business owner and ‘accidental’ activist, I will ensure the voice of mainstream, conservative Australia is heard and no longer ignored, ridiculed or cast aside. My commitment to the people of NSW is to be relentless in leading the necessary debates, investigations and legislative changes to stop Islamisation. I work for smaller and responsible government, a return to solid education, decent and affordable health care, effective protection of families and law-abiding Australians, creating opportunities for small business and securing our place in the global community."
