Robert Simms

Candidate for Adelaide

I have lived in South Australia for most of my life, and in the city of Adelaide for the past three years. I work in the University sector in the CBD, and as an experienced community advocate with a background as a City Councillor and Senator for our great state, I'm passionate about Adelaide's future.

I love living in the city but in recent years I have seen my area change dramatically, as Labor has put the interests of property developers ahead of the community. We need to change planning laws so that residents have a voice in the direction of our neighbourhoods.

We need to invest in public housing and affordable housing, so that more South Australians have an opportunity to own their own home. Housing should be about people, not profit.

Adelaide has the potential to be one of the world's leading green cities. As a City Councillor, I fought for a record investment in greening in the CBD. As your local member of parliament, I'll continue that work and will be a strong voice for renewables, quality bike paths and public transport infrastructure.

It would be honour to stand up for people and our planet, as your member for Adelaide.
