STANDING UP FOR THE SOUTHSIDE
As a working mum raising two girls with my husband Ravi on the Southside and through my role as a national voice for parents, I understand the challenges facing local families.
The fractured LNP voted to cut funds from our local hospitals and schools, while voting to protect banks from a royal commission. I know that the burden of these cuts fall back onto local families.
I am committed to standing up for our community to restore the funds cut from local schools and local healthcare. As the LNP continues to back the top end of town, I will put our local community first.
Jo Briskey - Labor Candidate for Bonner
Bonner deserves an MP who has the energy and vision to help build a stronger future. That’s why I am fighting to reverse the LNP’s unfair cuts to penalty rates, restore funding to local schools and hospitals and invest in local infrastructure.
Only Labor and Jo will:
Deliver an extra $18.84 million to local schools and guarantee two years of kindy education
Reverse the $13.1 million cut to the PA Hospital and end the Medicare freeze
Bring back penalty rates for thousands of workers in our community.
Boost investment in local jobs and apprenticeships
Give working people a tax break and better regulate power prices
Local schools are worse off under the LNP, who cut $14 billion from school funding across Australia.
Jo Briskey and Labor believe our kids deserve the world’s best education - not LNP cuts. That’s why Jo and Labor will invest an extra $18..84 million in public schools across Bonner to ensure that they are properly funded
The LNP has supported billions of dollars in handouts to the top end of town while cutting $13.1 million from the PA hospital.
Bonner locals are paying more for healthcare under the LNP. That’s why Jo and labor will more than restore the LNP’s cuts to hospital funding, will end the LNP’s freeze on Medicare and put a cap on private health insurance premiums to address the increase in out of pocket costs.
Under the LNP in Bonner, hundreds of local apprentice positions have been cut and thousands of local retail and hospitality workers have had their Sunday penalty rates cut.
Jo and Labor will restore penalty rates, boost apprentice places and create jobs by building much-needed local infrastructure.
