Greens

Gatton Star - - NEWS FEDERAL ELECTION: WRIGHT -

■ In­fra­struc­ture

THE Greens have a Renew Aus­tralia plan that will trans­form Aus­tralia’s en­ergy sys­tem to one of the clean­est and smartest. With our plan we will trans­form our econ­omy by driv­ing in­vest­ment into new re­new­able projects cre­at­ing thou­sands of jobs. We also have a plan to cre­ate a home for all, which will build more than 500,000 pub­lic and com­mu­nity homes across Aus­tralia.

■ Farm­ing sus­tain­abil­ity

I’M FROM a small Queens­land town that re­lies on a thriv­ing agri­cul­tural sec­tor, so I am all about sus­tain­able agri­cul­ture – and so are the Greens. The Greens have more in com­mon with our farm­ers than the ma­jor par­ties. Our prin­ci­ples are that sus­tain­able agri­cul­ture is fun­da­men­tal to food se­cu­rity, en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­ity, and cli­mate change mit­i­ga­tion and adap­ta­tion. I will work with farm­ers and the agri­cul­tural sec­tor to en­sure their liveli­hood is sus­tained.

■ In­land Rail

I WILL fight to en­sure that com­mu­nity con­cerns are con­sid­ered and acted on when it comes to all devel­op­ment and plan­ning de­ci­sions that af­fect our elec­torate. This is a huge in­fra­struc­ture project and it makes sense to move some of the freight task to rail but not at the cost of com­mu­ni­ties along the path of the In­land Rail.

■ Devel­op­ment

IF ELECTED, my role is to act in the best in­ter­ests of all peo­ple in the elec­torate. The Greens have great long-term plans that fo­cus on a sus­tain­able fu­ture for the peo­ple and en­vi­ron­ment. When we plan us­ing th­ese prin­ci­ples we will en­sure that we are cre­at­ing a fu­ture that ben­e­fits us all.
