Call to lower stamp duty
CITY Beach resident Judith Ross (62) was clear about what she wanted after the State Election on Saturday.
“Stamp duty reduced when buying houses, because as a couple trying to downsize it’s quite prohibitive,” Mrs Ross said.
She also had a concern for local youngsters.
“In the western suburbs, I’d like to see the City Beach High School proposal finalised so the site is used for its full potential,” she said.
Her husband Bill (72) said recent price hikes on essential services, such as 25 per cent extra for his vehicle licence renewal, were “unreasonable”.
Greater discounts and assistance was needed for those older than him “doing it tough”.
“I’d genuinely like to see, like many others, continued financial assistance to hospitals, the police and the elderly,” he said.
