WA Labor candidate for the seat of Eyre Greg Smith did not respond to Farm Weekly's questions at the time of going to print.
Mr Smith is a cargo supervisor at the Esperance Port and he believes the country was built on the back of the blue collar worker and thinks that in the last few years the role and importance of the blue collar worker has been forgotten.
Mr Smith was educated in Adelaide and after completing his trade certificate, travelled extensively overseas before returning to settle in Boulder.
For 10 years Mr Smith has worked on various mine sites throughout the region, before accepting a position at the Esperance Port in 2005.
He is also heavily involved with Newtown-Condingup Football Club as a reserve coach, junior umpire and social organiser.
Mr Smith has proven himself to be a confident, well spoken leader who can communicate well.
He lives with his wife Mel and their two daughters in Esperance.
