Education

Parents want the best for their children. We all want happy, healthy kids with plenty of opportunities in life.

We’re investing in our great local schools so our kids can have the very best start in life.

The Labor Government is building 70 new schools, fixing 1,300 more and helping families cover the cost of uniforms and books, camps and excursions.

We’re delivering unprecedented investment in schools across the Yarra Ranges, giving our schools more support and resources than they’ve ever had before.

Our positive plans will make sure local kids get the education they deserve – we’re standing up for the things that matter.

Only Labor will make sure every child gets a great education.

Transport

Every country Victorian knows we need to do more work on our regional roads.

It’s why we’re delivering the biggest road maintenance blitz Victoria has ever seen. With almost $1 billion invested, we’ll fix hundreds of regional roads, giving drivers safer, faster and more reliable journeys.

More and better transport options provide a vital link to jobs and education opportunities. Increased services that better connect our communities are needed, and only Labor can be trusted to deliver them and make life easier for hard working people.

We’ve got our eye on the future, too. That’s why we’re delivering the North East Link and the Suburban Rail Link, two of the biggest projects the state has ever seen. These will transform our region and connect us to the rest of the state.

Only Labor can be trusted to deliver the big projects that a growing Victoria needs.

Jobs

We live in one of the most unique and beautiful places in Australia.

For too long, we have missed out on the same prosperity that other parts of the state enjoy.

It’s time to bring more of that prosperity to our region, with a smart approach to nature-based tourism and sustainable industries.

Supporting local jobs is my top priority. A job you can count on changes everything. It helps you build your life and provide for your family.

The Labor Government is making TAFE free so Victorians can get the skills they need, for the jobs they want.

More than 300,000 jobs have been created since the last election and our positive plans will keep delivering more good quality jobs for Victorians.

Every Victorian deserves the security and dignity of a good, stable job with a decent wage.

Only Labor puts Victorian workers and Victorian jobs first.

Health and Mental Health

We all deserve quality healthcare close to home.

We also need quality local support and resources for managing mental health in our communities.

This can only be achieved with first-class and free health system that are caring and responsive in an emergency.

Labor ended the ambulance crisis and we’re and supporting our doctors and nurses to provide every patient the care they deserve.

Victorians with a mental illness will get the treatment they need, thanks to $705 million in the Victorian Budget 2018/19 for more mental health support, extra regional rehabilitation facilities and new emergency department crisis hubs to help Victorians struggling with mental illness.

Our positive plans will keep delivering better healthcare for all Victorians.

Only Labor believes in fast, free, and first-class healthcare, including mental health.

Fairness

Making ends meet is getting harder, especially in our region. The cost of living goes up, but wages aren’t.

Communities in our region need someone who backs them, who’ll stand up to the big end of town and fight for the things that matter.

Only Labor has a plan to make things easier for families.

We’re cutting stamp duty to help first home owners and making renting fairer and easier for those who don’t own their own place.

We’re investing in renewable energy to provide you with cheaper power, while taking on the energy retailers who were handed too much power by the Liberals’ privatisation.

Labor is making things safer too – funding 3400 more police than the previous Liberal Government left us, and finally addressing the number one law and order issue, family violence.

Our positive plans will keep delivering for families.

Only Labor will make things easier for hardworking Victorian families.
