As for me, I have no personal business interests and no political aspirations. I have neither investment property nor the money to invest in property.
I have a son who is at Uni and will be looking for work on completion of his studies. I have another son who has not had secure, full time work since finishing high school. My wife and I, together with the bank, own our own home.
I lead a small church in a working class area of our city. We are involved there because we believe that everybody, regardless of their class, education or income, needs the opportunity to have access to if not belong to a Christian church community.
I teach at TAFE to supplement my income from our church. We live fairly simply not only because we have to but also because we want to.
Also, I have no axe to grind. I am not driven to prove anything, compete with anyone, or build a monument to myself. I would like to leave a legacy behind me of a community that is perhaps just a little better because I have been part of it.
