Ali France, Labor’s candidate for Dickson, is a disability advocate, a former journalist and a mum to two boys. Ali has lived on Brisbane’s northside for over a decade and she currently works for a palliative care charity.
Ali lost her leg in 2011 in a car accident. As a result, she has spent many years in and out of hospital and in doctor’s surgeries. Ali knows people are struggling and need a health system they can rely on – not one that is being cut to fund tax breaks for banks and big business.
Through determination and hard work, Ali recovered and went on to represent Australia in the sport of outrigger canoeing and win gold for our country. Ali is a unique candidate who will stand up and fight for our community.
Ali has already worked on securing stage two of the Petrie university project, which will bring thousands of jobs and education opportunities to our area. She will also secure vital new infrastructure and community projects that have been neglected by the current member.
Ali has the strength and determination we need to stand up and fight for us.
