JOSH AN­DREWS

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Know Your Candidates - Berowra -

Josh An­drews is the en­dorsed La­bor can­di­date for Berowra. He has a back­ground in small busi­ness, and works for the Na­tional Ter­tiary Ed­u­ca­tion Union at Western Syd­ney Univer­sity

He strongly be­lieves in the im­por­tance of small busi­ness to the lo­cal economies of Berowra, draw­ing on his small busi­ness back­ground. Josh is fight­ing for le­git­i­mate and sen­si­ble pol­icy to help ev­ery­day Aus­tralian small busi­ness own­ers prop­erly com­pete with ma­jor cor­po­ra­tions. Only Josh and La­bor have fully costed and funded pol­icy to give small busi­nesses real tax re­lief, through low­er­ing the small busi­ness tax rate and in­creas­ing wage de­duc­tions to 140% when small busi­nesses hire new em­ploy­ees.

Sup­port­ing Aus­tralian pub­lic school­ing and en­sur­ing equal op­por­tu­nity for Aus­tralian chil­dren is key to Josh’s pol­icy fun­da­men­tals, in­formed by his work in the ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor with the Na­tional Ter­tiary Ed­u­ca­tion Union. Ev­ery school in Berowra stands to lose $2m each in fund­ing cuts if La­bor isn’t able to pro­tect our ed­u­ca­tion in­vest­ment. Only Josh and La­bor will fully fund the Gon­ski pro­gram, pro­vid­ing our schools with the sup­port they need.
