This election offers the people of Bendigo a clear choice.
The Coalition’s Real Solutions Plan will deliver more jobs, a stronger economy and lower taxes for the people of central Victoria and the Macedon Ranges.
If elected, the Liberal candidate for Bendigo Greg Bickley will be a strong voice for Bendigo.
Greg has lived in the area all of his life, he knows farming, studied at La Trobe University in Bendigo, is raising a young family and has built businesses that employ local people.
So he knows how important job security and reducing cost of living pressures are for local families.
Greg has proven in his life that he gets things done and I know if he is elected he will deliver more jobs, better services and a stronger local economy in Bendigo. On my visits to Bendigo, Greg has championed small business and the need for lower taxes and less red tape so we can stimulate job growth.
So if the people of Bendigo choose Greg Bickley and the Coalition tomorrow, they will be choosing a new government that will:
-- build a stronger, diversified economy so everyone can get ahead;
-- scrap the carbon tax, saving the average family $550 next year alone;
-- get the Budget back under control by ending Labor’s waste;
-- stop the boats; and
-- build more modern roads – including a $45 million commitment to improve the notorious Calder Highway interchange near Ravenswood.
That’s our contract with you.
If the people of Bendigo vote for the Coalition’s positive plan, real change starts the morning after the election.
If you vote for change, on day one of an incoming government, I will instruct the public service to prepare the carbon tax repeal legislation.
If you vote for change, Operation Sovereign Borders will start immediately.
If you vote for change, Labor’s $1.8 billion FBT hit on company cars won’t proceed and confidence can return to the local car industry from Sunday morning.
And with your vote, we will restore confidence in our country and in our future. Your vote gets a competent, trustworthy government.
That’s what my strong, united team wants to deliver to the Australian people in the future.
At this election I need you to vote for change – so that we can achieve all the good things that we set out in our contract with you. There’s only one way to do it and that’s to vote for Greg Bickley.
I respectfully ask you to join Greg and I – and help us deliver a stronger government and build a stronger Australia.
