Greg Bondar, Awards Selection Committee Chairman for the FamilyVoice National ‘Mother of the Year Awards’ wishes to announce that the Winner of the 2022 Mother of the Year Award is Pauline Hanson from Queensland.
These awards were open to all mothers with nominations closing 16 April and were launched on 8 March radio station 2GB.
“Pauline Hanson, a mother of four and a grandmother of 6, is a worthy recipient given her commitment to family and the community and indeed Australia as a member of federal parliament,” said Greg Bondar
These awards were introduced by FamilyVoice after Bernardos dropped the annual award in 2021.
Barnardos Australia announced it would no longer run its longstanding Mother of the Year Award in a bid to "better reflect and support diverse families in the community".
The family support and foster care organisation published a statement that said it "works with people of all demographics – including single parents, foster parents, same sex couples, and relatives caring for the children of family members – not just mothers, to support vulnerable children and families in Australia".
FamilyVoice Australia, now taking it upon themselves to declare Mother of The Year, is a Christian voice promoting "true family values for the benefit of all Australians".
"Our vision is to see strong families at the heart of a healthy society: where marriage is honoured, human life is respected, families can flourish, Australia’s Christian heritage is valued and fundamental freedoms are enjoyed".
The Beagle has tried to contact the One Nation candidate for Gilmore to gain a response to the announcement however Mr Eid can not be located, has no internet presence, and many ask "does Mr Eid actually exist?".
Possibly the Gilmore Liberal candidate might have Mr Eid's phone number given that the he has defended his decision to put a One Nation candidate he has never met ahead of his Labor rival, as controversy grows around One Nation's “ghost” candidates.
