NO. 2 SENATE CANDIDATE FOR NSW, ANTHONY ZIEBELL
Anthony Ziebell is a small business owner and renters' rights advocate and founder of the landlord review website DontRentMe.com.
Anthony has frequently appeared on programs like Channel 9's A Current Affair, exposing shonky landlords and substandard rental conditions.
Anthony founded and lead the Tenants Rights Party, gaining experience lobbying state and federal politicians, but decided to combine his efforts with the Affordable Housing Party in 2017 after it was successfully registered with the AEC before the Tenants Rights Party.
Anthony is an experienced Information Technology professional and Software Developer and has built a number of small businesses including a Software Service business and a Tyre and Automotive retail business.
Despite that, the dream of home-ownership has eluded Anthony, and he is greatly concerned that owning your own home has become impossible for so many Australians and that those who are buying may be doing so in an over-inflated market.
