Jake McCoull was born and raised in the rural town of Bullsbrook, Western Australia where he developed a love for the outdoors, hiking, camping and driving off-road vehicles. Jake owns and operates a telecommunication maintenance business and a photography service. Jake also has industry experience in Earthworks, Mining, Manufacturing, and Telecommunications.
Jake intends to hold members of the current Labor government accountable for their heavy-handed Covid-19 response, which has resulted in massive skill shortages, displaced workers, and massive pressure on small businesses in Western Australia. The government has failed to counter the impending energy crisis and the rising cost of living with token handouts. Jake will seek solutions to these issues by removing restrictions in the marketplace, which will support small businesses and the people they employ. As a law-abiding firearm owner, sporting shooter, and collector of Second World War Firearms, Jake would also like to stop the constant demonising of firearm owners and encourage responsible participation in shooting sports.
Jake is a long-term member of the Liberal Democrats and a strong advocate of individual freedoms. He strongly believes that government overreach and the continuing use of emergency powers are ongoing threats to the freedoms that we take for granted.
