STATEMENT FROM SENATOR CORY BERNARDI
Friday 7 April 2017
I am thrilled to welcome Kirralie Smith as a member of Australian Conservatives. Having worked with her on a number of occasions, most notably on halal certification concerns, I know her aspirations for our country and the preservation of Australian values are genuine and heartfelt.
Kirralie has been a courageous and outspoken opponent of the political correctness that is plaguing our nation and she will bring that energy and conviction to make a positive contribution as a member of Australian Conservatives.
Australian Conservatives is expanding its national footprint and has experienced significant growth in New South Wales as more people seek a principled, stable and credible alternative to the major parties. In the months ahead we will be seeking State based Party registration and I look forward to Kirralie playing a significant role in that process.
We are excited to have Kirralie join us during our rapid expansion as the fastest growing political movement in our nation.
