My name is Marie Rowland and I’m the Nick Xenophon Team’s candidate for the Federal seat of Warringah.
My background is in counselling and the provision of frontlinemental health services, so you could say that it’s my business to listen to people and help them through their problems. I hope to provide a similar service to Warringah as a whole by becoming your Federal MP.
I believe that politics in Australia has grown distant and irrelevant to the average voter, and I want to work to change that. I really think that this year is an opportunity to come together and tell the folks in Canberra that what we want is a government that prioritises ordinary people over ideology, pressure groups and big business.
You can find my thoughts, ideas and policies here – I hope you enjoy your visit to the political mind of Marie!
