Kris Bullen is a Queenslander born and bred. Kris spent his younger years as a boy on a 40 acre rural property in the small country town of Coominya.  Moving to the Sunshine Coast during primary school where he still resides and is currently raising his two young sons.

Kris has become tired of watching the decay of Australian society and has also become tired of waiting for someone to provide a real alternative to the existing parties, all of whom appear to have some element of bias that distracts them from their job of representing their electorate.

Kris believes that we need to allow people to focus on what means the most to them.  Some people feel that the pursuit of money is important, others may think that family, health, fitness or education is more important.  As a society we should facilitate everyone in achieving their individual objectives.  As people become increasingly fulfilled, businesses will benefit from employing people who are happy, healthy and motivated. 

As well as what appears below, Kris has been active in numerous volunteer and community organisations and has always been interested in the progression of Australia and its politics.

Personally, when making considerations and decisions, Kris considers the following principles.  This approach is born from his academic, professional and personal life experiences.  It is up to each of us to establish the best way to make considered and informed decision on the issues that face our nation.

 

Four guiding principles
