Eden Monaro Votes: Kelly - A Fair Go For Eden-Monaro

Mike Kelly - Opinion Piece - A Fair Go For Eden-Monaro

Since being re-elected as the Member for Eden-Monaro in 2016, I have been a strong advocate for our local community on the issues that matter to people and families living in our electorate.

One thing has been clear to me over the past six years under the Liberals and Nationals – they have the wrong priorities.

The choice at this election could not be clearer.

Do we want the world’s best health care and education systems with Labor? Or tax loopholes that favour the top end of town with the Liberals and Nationals?

Do we want a fair country where the economy works in the interests of everyone – particularly working families – with Labor? Or the big business and the banks benefiting more than everybody else with the Liberals and Nationals?

We all know that a strong TAFE sector and apprenticeships are critical to our region – particularly with the new renewable energy projects in development. That’s why I’m proud that Labor will invest over $1 billion in TAFE and apprentices to restore TAFE as the centrepiece of Australian vocational training.

Our community is calling for the Government to take real action limiting the impacts of climate change – it is such an important issue for our farmers and our ski industry. Labor has committed to 50 per cent renewable energy by 2030 by investing in cheaper, cleaner energy.

Labor believes everyone should have access to affordable, quality healthcare.

Unfortunately, in Australia, nearly half of all cancer patients pay more than $5,000 in out-of-pocket costs over the course of their diagnosis and treatment. This is why Labor will invest $2.3 billion to slash the out-of-pocket costs for cancer patients – the biggest investment in Medicare since Bob Hawke introduced it.

With your support at this election, I’ll fight for real action on climate change, better local health care and I’ll make sure the key projects in our region, like Snowy 2.0, are supported by local jobs.
