Vale Martin Klibbe

News Weekly, July 31, 2004
Martin Klibbe, 25, a former Queensland Young National Party State President and ex-staffer for De-Anne Kelly, the Member for Dawson, died tragically on Thursday, July 15.

Martin was not just passionate about politics, he was also passionate about defining right and wrong. For him both endeavours were intrinsically linked. Therefore, on issues of principle he was willing at times to speak out and rock the boat.

Martin believed in his nation and its institutions, as demonstrated by his advocacy of family and pro-life values. So, not surprisingly, he was a member of the Australian Family Association.

In 2003, he addressed the AFA's Queensland state conference and spoke without notes for 40 minutes. His oration was regarded by all in attendance as the best of the conference (and can be found in print form at the AFA (QLD) website www.family.org.au/qld under the News Archives).

When he became President of the Young Nationals, Martin saved the organisation from virtual collapse. He further demonstrated his skills as a political organiser working on a number of election campaigns. His talent and loyal friendship will be missed by many.

Martin is survived by his mother Dawn, father Owen and sisters Alana and Anita. To them and extended family members News Weekly offers its deepest sympathies.
