One Nation candidate confirmed for Flynn

A THIRD-generation primary producer based in Biggenden has been confirmed as One Nation's candidate for Flynn for the next federal election.

It will be the second time Sharon Lohse has been a candidate for Pauline Hanson's party, after she contested the seat of Callide during the last state election in 2017.

She won just under 44 per cent of the vote after preferences.

During the 2016 Federal Election, one in six people that walked into a polling across the Flynn electorate marked a one next to the One Nation Party.

In what was the first time the party had been on the ballot paper since 2007, then candidate Phil Baker picked up 17.2 per cent of first-preference votes.

Ms Lohse said she hoped to unseat Liberal National Party Member for Flynn, Ken O'Dowd.

"If we want to get this country back on track, One Nation is the only choice. We've got the guts to say what you're thinking and fight for the issues that the big parties are to scared of,” she said.

Ms Lohse and her husband Robert are beef cattle producers in Biggenden and the Western Downs.

She has recently spoken out about a "lack of property management” to neighbouring property owners of national parks, following the recent unprecedented fires.

Ms Lohse joins sitting member Mr O'Dowd and Labor's Zac Beers as the three confirmed candidates for Flynn for the federal election.
