It's Tammy here...
people have signed up to help me.
Those are three words I believe in!
That's why I want to be a Senator
Picture what a politician looks like, and you probably don’t picture me. Fair enough.
But we’ve spent the better part of 30 years electing people who all look the same, who all talk the same, and we wonder why nothing changes.
Jacqui Lambie’s shown me that it’s possible to be a different kind of politician, and it’s not a mystery.
We need regular people to put their hands up.
That’s what it takes. That’s what I’m doing.
I don’t promise to be the best political operator in Canberra. If that’s what you’re after, there are other options on the Senate voting ticket.
What I promise is that when I make a promise, I’ll keep it. Hold me to it. I can’t lie. It’s not in my nature. I can’t harm someone. I can’t rip someone off. I can’t take a shortcut just because it’s easier, if it means the job doesn’t get done right. I never have. It doesn’t sit right with me.
I’ve worked in paddocks, factories, offices. I’ve helped people who’ve been out of work for years. I’ve driven them to their job interview myself. I’ve talked them through the nerves, and I’ve seen them get the job.
The way I did it? I didn’t change their resumes. I didn’t change their skills or talents, likes or dislikes, strengths or weaknesses. All I changed was how they felt about themselves. I made them realise that this job they’re applying for is something they can really do, and do well.
Because when you’ve got someone who cares about you in your corner, who’s backing you up and who’s lifting you up, you can do way more than you can do on your own.
I want to back Jacqui Lambie up. I believe in her. I believe in what we can achieve together. So I’m putting my hand up. And I’m asking you to back me.
P.S. If you want to back me:
- Volunteer for me!
- Sign up to my newsletter!
- Donate to my campaign!
- Follow the campaign on social media!
- Vote for me on election day! (look for a how to vote card here, closer to the election)
Tammy’s worked alongside me for eight years
I need her in the Senate
I trust her completely.
She’s the kind of friend everybody needs. I’m lucky I get to work with her too. She’s the real deal. She’s never let me down. Never once has she lied to me. She’s honest, fierce, decent, kind and real.
I’ve been in Parliament long enough to see what it’s sorely missing, and let me tell you: it’s missing Tammy Tyrrell.
Send me a message
Back Tammy in!
She’s fighting tooth and nail to break through the political establishment. Will you sign up to help her?
