Australian Christians has placed two experienced political campaigners together to head the Australian Christians campaign in the West. Jamie van Burgel and Justin Moseley are expected to attract votes from dissatisfied voters from the other political parties.
Australian Christians has endorsed Jamie van Burgel and Justin Moseley as candidates to contest the Senate at the 2013 Federal Election, to be held on September 7.
Married with three young children, Jamie is no stranger to the political arena, having run as a candidate for Canning in the 2010 Federal Election and twice for the seat of Armadale in the 2010 Armadale By-Election and 2013 State Election.
Jamie’s goal in politics is to present a Christian worldview to the Parliament and represent Christian values in all areas of policy, of which he has a particular interest in affordable housing due to his profession as a property valuer.
“My interest as an aspiring Christian politician is the sanctity of human life and the protection of the Church to preach the true Word of God,” he said.
The second Senate candidate, Justin, lives on a farm near Albany together with his wife of 35 years, Sue. Together they run a small business and have three married children, a child in primary school and two grandchildren.
Justin is also a teacher at a Christian school and the experience of being a country teacher has afforded him the opportunity to work with families from all walks of life.
“As a teacher, parent and foster carer I have developed a broad understanding of the problems and concerns facing Australian families today,” he said.
Australian Christians National President Dwight Randall welcomed Jamie and Justin as candidates for Australian Christians, a party shaped by Christian values including honesty and integrity, hope, respect, moral law, freedom, justice and sacrifice.
“We believe they will uphold these values and play an important role in the future growth and development of Western Australia,” Mr Randall said.
Mr Randall said the political landscape was at a crossroads and Australian Christians viewed itself as a viable third party alternative.
“As a Christian party, we strive to implement honesty and integrity, hope for the future of Australians, freedom and a just political and Governmental system within Australia,” he said.
The WA Branch of Australian Christians will also run candidates in all of the 15 House of Representative seats in the State.
