John Ruddick
#1 Senate Candidate for NSW

John Ruddick grew up in Tamworth and came to Sydney in 1991 to study at the University of Sydney. In the mid 1990s John was a staffer for Ross Cameron MP and since 2000 has worked as a self-employed mortgage broker.

John joined the Liberal Democrats in mid 2021 after three decades of involvement with the NSW Liberal Party. In 2018 he published Make the Liberal Party Great Again which advocated for democratic reform within that party. He joined the Liberal Democrats after being shocked by the Morrison government’s over-reaction to COVID and the accompanying $1.2 trillion of Commonwealth debt and a capitulation on a fanciful net-zero carbon economy.

John is a regular contributor with the Spectator Australia and has appeared many times on Sky News along with having opinion pieces published in the major Australian newspapers.
