Even though the Labor party candidate for Hinkler is inexperienced I would have thought that someone in the Labor party could have provided campaign advice (Isis Town and Country 19/05/16). There will be a number of debates throughout the campaign organised by local chambers of commerce, local media or other community organisations. I welcome those opportunities to discuss topics that matter to the constituents of Hinkler and the Coalition’s plan for jobs and a stronger economy. The ALP candidate may know where he stands on issues, however he fails to elaborate further so I will take this opportunity to explain. A vote for Labor means more debt, more taxes and economic chaos. Labor has a $66 billion Budget black hole with no means to pay for it. Apart from borrowing more money and raising taxes. Labor is divided on National Security and they don’t support turn-backs which are a vital part of securing Australia’s borders. Only the Coalition’s economic plan will drive growth and jobs for individuals and businesses in Hinkler. And we will continue to protect Australia’s borders as we have done for the past three years.
