As a long time resident born and bred in Pingelly John Hassell understands the challenges and opportunities that face the Federal electorate of O'Connor.
John has pursued a career in agriculture for most of his life. He studied agribusiness at Muresk and has owned and operated his family farm for the past 25 years. He was a director on the Board of CBH for nine years, a member of WA Farmers and a Board member of the SolarisCare Foundation.
John began working and advocating for regional communities with the WA Farmers Federation to try and get a fairer deal for farmers when dealing with all levels of Government. He soon became a member of the WA Farmers executive and took on the transport portfolio before being elected to the CBH board of directors.
John says being endorsed as The Nationals WA candidate for O’Connor is a huge privilege and responsibility. He’ll be supporting Senate Candidate Nick Fardell to fight for a fairer share for Western Australia.
John lives in Pingelly with his wife, Michelle. He has three children, Eliza, Chelsea and George.
