Summary

Gladys Gander is a once only candidate for election to Parliament: a One Nation Party candidate in the New South Wales Legislative Assembly elections for Newcastle in 2003.

Details

Gladys Gander was 73 and retired from employment when she ran for election for the seat of Newcastle in 2003. She gave her address as Bankstown, a suburb of Sydney, so her candidature in Newcastle was intended to bolster the vote of her party leader, Pauline Hanson, in her bid for a seat in the Legislative Council of New South Wales. Although she was in first position on the ballot paper, she won only 2.4% of the votes cast.
Her husband, Trevor Gander, aged 74, also ran for the One Nation Party, in the adjoining seat of Lake Macquarie.
