I’m Carmel Sepuloni and I am the candidate for Kelston.
I was a teenager during the 90’s. This period really shaped my political views for life. Both my parents lost jobs. I still remember the rhetoric of the day – ‘bludgers’. We lived in a small town of 5000 people and, when the local freezing works closed down, families were hit hard. Getting work was easier said than done and, even if you got work, the wages were ridiculously low.
