Starting Points for the Public Good Agenda


• Our new Prime Minister to issue a Statement of Purpose for the government before the federal budget, based around or inclusive of the ‘3Cs’.

• Use Budget Night to address progress on each front (a la the US ‘State of the Union’ address), reframing success from debt/deficit and ‘winners vs losers’ coverage alone.

• Establish a Minister for Open Government, charged with increasing public trust and participat­ion in democracy, including a robust federal ICAC.
