GERRY Moore’s vocal campaign against the recent federal budget has led to inevitable questions about a future career in politics.
He’s playing his cards close to his chest, not ruling such a move in or out.
He said he has been inspired over the past week to make a difference.
“I’m very flattered that people would even ask me about politics,” he said.
“It is something that has been on my mind but there is a long way to go until the next election and it would have to be a very carefully considered decision.
“But what has happened over the past week has inspired me to make a difference.
“Not just for my people but I want to do good for people in general – the elderly, the sick, our young unemployed people, pensioners, people who are socioeconomically disadvantaged.
“They are the ones who need to a strong voice. They are the ones being asked to do the heavy lifting in the process.”
