Sue Mureau, born & bred in Narrabri, NSW, I then spent many years in Brisbane and Ipswich and now owns a home in Beerwah, in the beautiful Sunshine Coast hinterland.
I worked predominantly in retail, sales and marketing, eventually moving into management positions, a Sales Executive role and then as a management contractor. After suffering a workplace injury that took years of rehabilitation, I ran my own business.
I worked in roadworks and traffic control when I re-entered the workforce after having my first child, and I now have 2 children, 2 step-children and my first granddaughter was born in February 2016.
I am aware of the many issues facing regional Australia, and currently volunteer my time as a member of the Our Towns and Communities Matter Project, focussing on mental health and suicide prevention strategies in regional areas, and I have previously volunteered on one of local regional development committees, before taking up my position within the Australian Workers Party. I’m also a registered advocate for White Ribbon Australia and a member of the Bravehearts foundation
I am only too familiar with the many struggles that survivors of Domestic Violence, those with disabilities, families and children, face within our failing social welfare, child protection, Family Law and legal systems - I strongly believe that Family Law reform, violent and sexual offender sentencing reform, affordable housing and emergency accommodation, funding for Domestic Violence front line services, work visas and regional development - incorporating long term sustainable water management, renewable energy development ,efficient internet services, transport upgrades & foreign ownership, are some of the biggest issues facing Australia today, and that in addressing those issues, we will be addressing, what has become an unemployment, poverty and mental health crisis in this country. We need to get our people back to work and feeling safe and valued. We need to rebuild our communities – and our sense of community.
