Matthew Fraser has been preselected as the Nationals Candidate for Richmond.

A small business owner, Mr Fraser has contested the seat of Richmond twice in the past and says he is keen to restore strong representation to the region.

“The people of Richmond deserve better than a career politician, they deserve someone with vision, ethics and a commitment to the community,” he said. “Returning Richmond back to the Nationals has been and is a long process; this election will be the toughest battle yet and the gloves are off. The Nationals have successfully represented this region for decades and I intend to give the people strong and effective representation.”
