Chris Cicchitti for Petrie
Chris Cicchitti is 39 years old and lives with his partner and nine year old son in Scarborough, an area his family loves. Chris works in the field of logistics management and is passionate about sport, especially ice hockey, Qld State League (QAFL) boundary umpiring, running, cycling, inline hockey and general health & fitness. He is vegan and keen to raise awareness of the benefits of exercise and plant-based diet for health and fitness.
Chris’ first priority is to ensure that the government seriously tackles climate change, by investing in and providing incentives for greater use of solar panels and other means of generating clean energy. Passionate about all animals, Chris is concerned about the treatment of many wild and farmed species. He is appalled by the mass killing of kangaroos throughout Western Queensland and many other parts of Australia.
Worried about the natural world and the high rate of deforestation in Queensland, Chris wants to see a massive increase in the protection of forests because of their crucial role in our natural environment, providing habitat for a variety of plant and animal species and contributing to cleaner air and water. “We’re seeing the destruction of forests and land clearing for development and to expand animal agriculture, and this has to stop.”
Chris is keen to discuss environmental and animal protection issues with the voters of Petrie and to represent their concerns in Parliament.
Donate to get Chris elected!
Contesting elections is a costly exercise - it's a $2000 fee per candidate to get on the ballot paper and then there are advertising and printing costs! We estimate it will cost us a minimum of $5k to cover candidate fees, advertising and printing for Chris's campaign. We'd love to double or triple that to give him the best chance of being elected to represent the Animal Justice Party.
Can you chip in to cover some of the costs?
