Great to spend time with some of our Wills campaigners this weekend. We have big plans to change the story here in Wills. Our community is sick of politics being decided by property developers, the supermarket duopoly, coal and gas and weapons companies! The people of Wills are powerful and we are going to fight hard for things our community urgently needs. We won’t stop until we win a freeze on rents and mortgage hikes, and stop super market price gouging. We’ll keep fighting until Labor stops approving new coal and gas and stands up for Palestine.

And we plan to have fun and look after each other while we do it. Are you with us?

Join our campaign at an upcoming event, like our door knock in Fawkner this weekend. 🚪

Took a little break from campaigning today to celebrate our special 4 year old’s birthday 🎉

Much fun and chaos was had by all!

But especially this year, we kept in our hearts all the children who are experiencing very hard times because of war, deprivation or loss.

A wise person once told me that becoming a parent brings with it a feeling that all the children of the world are now yours too because of the depth of empathy you feel especially when you see children suffering.

Our birthday wish this year is that no child should experience suffering. And we all have a role in making that possible ❤️

Renters are being told to bubble wrap their windows to stay warm.

The only freeze this winter, should be a rent freeze!

The cost of food is out of control, but Labor has no plan to regulate the supermarkets, introduce price controls and stop supermarket price gouging.

Making a submission to the Food Insecurity Inquiry is a powerful way to tell the Labor Government how the cost of food is affecting you, and to push them to do more to tackle price gouging.

You can add your submission via the link in my bio👆🏾

Fantastic Wills volunteer night last night! Great to see so many new and returning faces getting involved. It was a really fun night, talking strategy, processing data and making calls. Join us at the next one! ...

Senator Fatima Payman has demonstrated true courage by voting with conviction to support recognition of Palestine.

For this, Labor has sanctioned her more than they have sanctioned Netanyahu for committing war crimes and genocide.

Another great doorknock in Pascoe Vale on the weekend.

We heard from voters that they’re feeling let down by the Labor government and really struggling with the cost of living.

But if we want change, the first step is to elect people who will represent and fight for our community.

It’s going to take all of us, talking to our neighbours, our friends and family. Can you join us on the doors? Sign up via the link in bio.
