THE WA Liberal Party has endorsed a strong team of six candidates to contest the Agricultural Region at the next State election to take on the Carpenter Govern-ment.
Former Dalwallinu farmer Jim Chown is second on the Liberal Agricultural Region's ticket and keen to pursue a career in politics after retiring from the farm almost two years ago.
Mr Chown said the Legislative Council would now play an even more important role in representing country WA after the introduction of Labor's one-vote one-value legislation.
He said that was why it was important for electors in the Agricultural Region to vote Liberal in the Legislative Council.
"There are only two parties that have the ability to form Govern-ment and seriously influence legislation in State Parliament - and one of them, the Labor Party, has completely sold out rural WA," Mr Chown said.
"The Liberal Party has a proven track record of standing up for the people of rural and regional WA in the Legislative Council.
"This was best evidenced by the Liberal Party's success in April this year in having its Bill to cut the daylight saving trial passed by the Legislative Council."
The Liberal Party Agricultural Team was endorsed by the State Council earlier this month.
