Stephen Piper

Division of Pearce

Born and bred in Western Australia, Stephen Piper has seen the drastic change that has taken place across the state in the last 4 decades. As a Surveyor running his own business he has travelled to many regional areas and has been appalled at the way the major parties have neglected them for the sake of the corporate dollar party donors. The steady influx of migrants and the pressure it has caused on our schools, hospitals and public services has reached the point that they can no longer cope. Small business and the average tradesperson need to be rewarded not punished along with the cost of living that needs to be addressed, in particular the ever increasing cost of power. All these things Stephen intends on addressing as the APP's candidate for the Division of Pearce.
