I am fighting for a better deal on employment, environment, equality and integrity in politics. These are the key issues in Cowper. We need more than just infrastructure here. We also need a vision, services and assistance for the people of Port, Coffs, Kempsey and the mid-north coast.

People like Labor’s positive policies, people and priorities, nationally and locally. We have big problems to fix here. We can but we need to move forward and not back. More of the same from the National Party and others won’t change a thing around here. Labor is committed to change.

People tell me they want change; a totally fresh approach, and a voice in Canberra that can be heard. We’re only going to change Cowper if we change direction in Cowper. You will only get real change with Labor.

I have a straightforward message – don’t muck around, don’t waste your vote, don’t risk the Nationals winning again – we’ll all be better off with a Labor voice inside a Labor Government.
