I am seeking support from all members of Australian Labor Party living in federal electorate of Farrer, to become their voice at next ALP National Conference, this July in Adelaide. In my nine years, as a member of ALP-NSW Labor-Griffith Branch, I have done hard yards in grass-roots politics in positions of Secretary of Griffith Branch, President of SEC Murray and President of FEC Farrer. I was also candidate for NSW Country Labor in seat of Murray at 2015 election. I am very familiar with issues important for people in rural and regional NSW and I am prepared to strongly advocate for better deal with public health, education, transport and social services in electorate of Farrer where incoming federal Labor government, should invest substantially, to overcome massive shortfalls from NSW Coalition government in last 6 years. Lack of services in many rural and regional parts of NSW, including electorate of Farrer is burning issue and need to be addressed on the floor of the next ALP National Conference.
If elected Delegate from Farrer I will also raised issues of corporate tax avoidance and Australian sovereign debt, which is raising rapidly, as well as inequality and social justice and urgent need for major tax reform. I will be working very hard with members of our party, NSW party officers and MPs and Senators, as well as National Policy Forum members in order to contribute to ALP National Platform, with most progressive agenda in recent times, that’s what we need in order to win next federal election . We have to preserve Australia as we know it, with and put needs and aspirations of Australian people ahead of interests of multinationals and big business. I will oppose tax cuts for businesses with turnover greater then 50 million for the simple reason, our great nation Australia just cant afford it at the moment. Good government is about right choices and priorities and Australian Labor Party should not put corporate welfare ahead of welfare of its people.
That’s why I am seeking mandate from you to represent electorate of Farrer, ALP members and people of this electorate at next National Conference.
If elected, happy to discuss any issue which might be relevant for this Conference, with ALP party members and branches in electorate of Farrer. I will be visiting all branches in Farrer in coming months, if elected and I will be available in extensive consultation process.
