An osteopath is putting his back into the federal election as the Farrer candidate for the Sustainable Australia party.
Ross Hamilton is running on four main election platforms, the first and foremost being cutting immigration levels down to 70,000 people per year.
That's a drastic decrease - less than half of current levels - but Mr Hamilton insists it's necessary to stop overpopulation and ease the strain on public infrastructure.
He stands by his party's motto of "better not bigger", and he believes overpopulation is a major "blindspot" that is being neglected by the major parties.
"We're facing record high immigration rates which are simply not being matched by our infrastructure," Mr Hamilton said.
Better infrastructure is his second main election promise, especially when it comes to rural and regional areas.
"We don't want to grow for the sake of growing, we want to make sure we have a diversified economy and better services to the regions," Mr Hamilton said.
His third election platform is getting more medical staff into regional and rural areas, a cause which is high on his priority list as somebody who works in the health sector.
"From the inside I can see things are badly lacking," Mr Hamilton said.
"If elected as member for Farrer I will push for specialist training colleges in major centres such as Griffith."
He believes having more training colleges in regional areas is the key to getting health students into the regions and then living and working there after they graduate.
Number four on his election priorities is a royal commission into the Murray Darling Basin Plan, which he says is in need of a radical overhaul.
"There have been failures in the plan, and it's southern NSW that's picking up the tab for problems elsewhere in the system," Mr Hamilton said.
These are the key issues that Mr Hamilton will be taking with him on the campaign trail, and he hopes this will be enough to sway voters over when they head to the polls on May 18.
