The buses and trains in our area are overcrowded and we desperately need upgrades now, not years down the track. But the priority of the Berejiklian government has been privatising transport with projects like Westconnex and knocking down stadiums rather than public transport.
With half the residents of Heffron renting their homes we’ll be working closely with the community to improve renters’ rights and the right to secure, affordable housing that is not being delivered by the current system.
