Amanda is a local business owner, and lives on a small hobby farm. She knows the challenges involved in starting up and running a small business -from staffing, administration/book keeping, inventory, advertising, and most importantly business tax. Amanda is passionate about reducing business taxes, removing pointless regulations and making it easier for new businesses to be created.
Amanda’s motivation for running for candidacy kicked off because she saw that rural/regional areas have been neglected, divided and ignored by the government. Having engaged with her local community she discovered there are many more issues facing her region; including lack of educational resources, destruction of farming land, lack of health services and most recently medical segregation. Amanda would like to help reconnect, and rebuild and fight for her community.
As civil rights leader Coretta Scott King once said “Freedom and justice cannot be parceled out in pieces to suit political convenience. I don't believe you can stand for freedom for one group of people and deny it to others.”
