Hi, my name is Danielle.
I'm a strong community advocate and want to amplify your voice in Queensland Parliament. I'm a union organiser who loves living, working, and being involved locally.
I believe in a fair go. Bundamba deserves a representative who will advocate fiercely for the community's best interest, and this is something that comes naturally to me. I want our diverse community to be healthy and ensure that we don't miss out on all the support and services we need to thrive.
Cost of living is biting, and unemployment is on the rise due to COVID-19. Many people in our community are hurting and need a helping hand. Local job creation is essential, and it needs to be free from fear around issues of insecure work, unemployment, underemployment and wage theft. We can't allow a situation where we have community members living below the poverty line.
Right now, politics is dominated by Labor and the LNP. They take millions of dollars in political donations from their corporate mates. By stopping mining companies, the waste industry and big banks from donating money to political parties, we can have a parliament free of vested interests. We can reclaim our democracy.
By making the big end of town pay their fair share in corporate taxes and royalties, we can make sure that we have adequate community services. Let's fund our public schools, so they don't cost families so much money. We need enough local teachers, nurses, doctors, ambulance drivers, and police officers to help us as a community prosper. Now is the time to bring energy, water and healthcare back into public ownership.
A healthy community is one that isn't surrounded by Super Dumps and Waste to Energy Incinerators. We deserve more than just being a giant rubbish tip that is beholden to the waste industry. Our health and wellbeing need to be the number one priority.
We can future-proof our diverse community and build a sustainable future that we can all enjoy. By transitioning to renewable energy, we can create jobs, cut bills and turn around the climate emergency we all face.
You may have noticed that I use the word "we" a lot. That's because together, we can achieve great things. I want to hear about your vision for the future of Bundamba and our local community.
Will you join me in building a future for all of us?
