Outrageous. 😡

In the middle of the climate crisis, Victorian Labor has approved gas extraction right near the 12 Apostles.

We can’t open new coal, gas, or oil projects if we’re going to limit global warning to 1.5 degrees.

Fossil Fuels need to stay: In. The. Ground.

I recently spoke with 3AW about the Greens bill to stop supermarket price gouging. Here’s what I had to say about how it would work and why it’s needed.

The state budget was a massive opportunity for the government to be bold, to step in, and stand on the side of people doing it tough

Instead we got a do nothing  budget that continued with status quo.

LOCAL BUDGET UPDATE.

GOOD
🥳 Funding I advocated for Stonnington Community Assist and Uniting Prahran to support food relief for people in need & ensure they can meet the growing needs of our community. 

DISSAPOINTING

😡 No funding for St Kilda Primary School’s much-needed community hub. 

🥺 Planning has been completed but still funding to build the second entrance needed at Windsor station.

🧐 No funding for safe and separated bike lanes on Chapel Street North. 

😞 No funding for the relocation of the Port Phillip and Malvern SES units, despite existing facilities being crowded and inaccessible.

💚 I will continue to fight so our community gets the funding that it needs.

Victorian Labor is addicted to privatisation.

After the privatisation of Ports, Public Housing land, and even VicRoads. 

Now it’s basic government services like Births, Deaths & Marriages.

Is nothing sacred?

It’s nearly impossible to do a cheap supermarket shop these days. 

With the state budget just gone the Victorian Labor Government had another opportunity to stop supermarkets from ripping you off - but instead they’ve chosen to do nothing. 

The Greens will keep fighting back against greedy corporate price gouging and pushing the government to take action.
