TESTIMONIALS

web_domperrottet“I have seen Sophie demonstrate integrity and moral courage. She is a consensus builder, where there is conflict. She is able to empathise, relate to and work with a vast array of people of all walks of life. All these skills make her eminently suitable for a life in politics. The most important trait in public life is service and Sophie’s experiences to date are compelling evidence of this. Sophie’s personal and professional attributes, when taken together, make her an exemplary candidate for Parliament. I commend her to both pre-selectors and voters.”
The Hon Dom Perrottet MP, Minister for Finance

web_mirandadevine“ Sophie is part of a new breed of conservative feminists, who are retrieving women’s issues from the far left and bringing a fresh sensibility to feminism. An inspiration to other young women, she has a generosity of spirit that endears her to friends and strangers alike. She has a strong moral compass, and her beliefs are rooted in family and community… I have always been impressed by her warmth, intelligence, quick wit and energy. She has that rare combination of brains and acute social skills. With a strong streak of commonsense and practicality, she quickly grasps issues and distils them to their essence. For a party lacking many formidable young women, Sophie would be a major asset.”
Miranda Devine, News Limited Columnist

web_t_cole“…[Sophie] has the great advantage of being able to persuade people with the rare combination of reason and charm. She is an effective public speaker who was well prepared in what she had to say. Her greatest qualities, in my view, are her dedication, vitality and enthusiasm, coupled with her intelligence and speaking skills. As I came to know her better, I realised she had the capacity for conceptual thinking as well as an understanding of the necessity for attention to detail.”
