SCHOOLS AND HEALTH

– Increase funding for our schools, childcare and kindergartens. Ensure funding is transparent and needs based. Get politics out of our school funding so kids don’t have to wait for a by-election for the funding they need.

– Oppose the old parties’ cuts to universities and TAFE.

– Invest in our hospitals and preventative health.

FIX HOUSING

– For years Labor and the Liberals have supported a rigged system that gives tax hand-outs to those buying multiple properties through negative gearing and capital gains tax discounts. We stand against these unfair tax breaks for super wealthy investors.

– Introduce long-term leases for renters, cap rent to inflation, welcome pets, introduce minimum energy efficiency standards for rental properties and make sure your landlord can’t kick you out for no reason.

– Oppose Labor’s plan to sell 80 per cent of our public housing land to private developers.

CLEAN ENERGY — NOT COAL

– Guarantee people with solar panels are paid a fair price for the energy they feed back into the grid.

– Take action on the climate change emergency with a Solar Bank to make renewable energy and storage more affordable locally and invest in large-scale energy efficiency.
