Adam Finch

As I have a background in law enforcement I have a great concern for Law and Order and a strong sense of community and willingness to help those less fortunate than myself. I believe that Australians deserve more form Government at all levels. The cornerstone of society lies in placing value and importance on keeping families healthy and connected, this will enrich our nation and ensure a better future. I have experienced first-hand the devastation that Family violence can cause and the failure of Government to adequately support Australians suffering from Mental Health issues. We as a nation can improve in this space. To learn more about Adam follow him on Facebook here Adam Finch ABF Party.
