As the elected member for FRASER I will:

· balance economic policy with social and environmental considerations. Good economic management is about getting the balance right. It’s a “triple bottom line;”

· maintain the traditional Democrats principle of supporting legislation that is fair and equitable and seek to amend and make fairer that which is not;

· ensure that whichever party forms the government, they are held accountable for their actions;

· support industries that create jobs and are kind to the environment, and not those that will make problems for future generations. NO uranium mining and NO nuclear reactors;

· introduce legislation to create a Sustainable Population portfolio and population advisory panel to deal with real long term investment in social, environmental and economic infrastructure including ecologically sustainable urban and water planning, renewable energy, better public transport, health services and regional development.

· encourage investment in sustainable agricultural practices and sensible rural water management;

· work to end the “War on Drugs” approach and introduce legislation to treat drug and alcohol addiction as health issues;

· vote with my conscience on all issues;

· bring a “balance of reason” to the House of Representatives.
