United Australia Party endorses Kennedy candidate

The United Australia Party executive has endorsed small business owner Sue Bertuch as its federal candidate for the North Queensland seat of Kennedy.

Sue has wide ranging professional experience having started her career as a primary and secondary school teacher in both city and rural communities.

She has also worked as an early childhood teacher, in special education, as a customs officer and business director.

Sue has been an active member of various community groups spanning P&C, scouting, theatre, speedway, the RSL and Associated Citizens Auxiliary.

Sue joined the United Australia Party due to disappointment with the way the major parties had lost touch with the community.

“I am sick of the way Liberal and Labor are putting the needs of big business, minority groups and also global interests ahead of most Australians,’’ she said.

“I am also very passionate about protecting the rights of Australians and fighting the corruption and rorting that has crept into politics.”
