Every day in Tasmania, the Housing Connect partners, Anglicare, Colony 47, Hobart City Mission, the Salvation Army and CatholicCare are on the ground working with people who are severely disadvantaged including people who are currently experiencing housing stress.
We will ensure Tasmania does not make knee jerk reactions that may result in short term solutions and further disadvantage people in the longer term.
If enacted, charities will not be able to use international philanthropy or foreign donations to advocate on issues that are vital to the people and communities we work with.
If problems remain today, they are problems that are squarely the responsibility of our new government. Still referencing the performance of the previous Labor government will simply be frittering away time and opportunity.
Good governments work for the people, not for big business. They are open, transparent and accountable.
The 2018 State election is not about any single issue; it is about who has the best plan for all Tasmanians; their future, and all the things they care about, whether that is jobs and the economy, health and education, the cost of living, or supporting Tasmanians when they need it.
The thing that drives me above all else as Leader of the Labor Party is fairness.
We want to help you build a community with strong employment opportunities, to do that we need your input because local people know the south east region best.
“The 2018 State Election sees Tasmania poised at the brink of having the courage to make this change. We will need courageous leaders whose belief in each one of us gives them the strength to take us there.”
A coalition of the State’s leading peak bodies announced today Tasmania’s next State Government will be held publicly accountable for the outcomes achieved for all Tasmanians through measuring community wellbeing.
