Damien Ferri is a keen hardworking conservative that believes values and principles should once again reign in our great nation. At 29 years of age he has had 15 years of experience within politics and has worked for other conservative parties such as Family First and Katter’s Australia Party. He has also ran as an Independent Candidate. He studies the political landscape constantly, knows the demographics, the electorates, and the people. As a conservative he is very focused on social issues and believes that the family is the bedrock of society. He also holds freedom of speech, fiscal responsibility, and strong borders high on the agenda. He has worked in the areas of retail, administration, has spent close to a decade in the transport industry, and is now working in a local family business. He has interests in politics, theology, history, geography, social studies, music, and antiques.
Damien believes that our youth hold the key to our future and has been passionate in giving younger people a voice so they can follow their dreams. He has recently become a father and has always lived by the motto “don’t do what you wouldn’t want your future children to do” as he has always emphasised that the best way to make decisions in life is by setting an example for how you would wish your children to grow. He is very grateful to take on the role of National Deputy Leader of The Young Conservatives and is looking forward to working with many bright young individuals.
Damien believes that The United Conservative Party has the vision and the principles to make an impact on the national stage. As the country continues to spiral to the left under the Greens, Labor, & Turnbull Liberal policies, the UCP will come and provide the balance and conservative ideals the country needs, and the policies that will benefit the Australian people.
