The Katter’s Australian Party (KAP) have announced they will be contesting the seat of Callide at the upcoming state election with local family man and respected Councillor Robbie Radel, flying the KAP flag.
As an elected representative of 2016 North Burnett Regional Council, Mr Radel is enthusiastic to expand his representation portfolio.
“I am humbled by the opportunity to stand for the Callide electorate and am eager to ensure the area gets real representation after years of neglect by the major parties,” Mr Radel said.
Born in Biggenden and raised at Coalstoun Lakes, Robbie completed his education at Biggenden before following his dream to own and operate his own dairy farm.
“Living and working in Biggenden region my entire life and being a local councillor with a hands-on approach, has equipped me with the knowledge of local issues concerning the community and wider region,” he said.
Mr Radel said teaming up with KAP was a no-brainer, considering the issues with the current two-party system.
“There is disappointment with the major parties, and as a member of the KAP, I feel I will be able to achieve a lot more in representing the region,” Mr Radel said.
State leader for the KAP, Robbie Katter MP, has every confidence in Robbie Radel and looks forward to working with a dedicated member of the community.
“Robbie is a natural leader and it is clear when meeting him that he is passionate and determined to do well in serving his community,” Mr Katter said.
“This is the kind of man you want representing the region. Robbie know’s the issues having lived in the area all his life and being on the council.”
