The small business owner was born in Beaudesert and "raised to respect both land and community", according to his One Nation profile.

"Jason appreciates that many One Nation candidates are not career politicians," it continues.

"They are real people who have varied backgrounds and diversity but share the same passion for this great country."

However, some of Mr Quick's passions seem to be at odds with those of his party. 

The father-of-three used his Facebook account to publicly oppose the federal government's cashless welfare card scheme, which is set to expand following trials in Ceduna, South Australia and the east Kimberley in Western Australia. 

"Were (sic) Not Kids anymore," he wrote. 

"You know this is your money. The person you voted into government on behalf of you, the local Turnbul (sic) LNP Corrupted member has it spent for you."

In contrast, One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has called for the scheme to be rolled out nationally. 

Mr Quick also appears to support a treaty with Indigenous Australians, sharing an NITV article about the Garma Festival and the push for Makarrata - a Yolngu word for bringing peace after conflict leading to an agreement or treaty, which formed the central theme at this year's Garma. 

One Nation doesn't even support acknowledging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the Constitution. 

Since entering parliament, Pauline Hanson has had a turbulent relationship with the Indigenous community. 

In her 1996 maiden speech, she claimed the government was "encouraging separatism" by providing "benefits" to Aboriginal people. 

"Along with millions of Australians, I am fed up to the back teeth with the inequalities that are being promoted by the government and paid for by the taxpayer under the assumption that Aboriginals are the most disadvantaged people in Australia," she said. 

In November last year, Ms Hanson said there was "no definition to an Aboriginal", prompting social media backlash.

The One Nation leader has also claimed to be Indigenous herself, because she was "born here". 

Mr Quick will contest the seat of Redlands, currently held by the LNP's Matthew McEachan with a 1.2 per cent margin. 

NITV has contacted Jason Quick for comment.
