My priority is fixing these problems

Ed,

I believe schools, hospitals and TAFE should come before splurging $2.2 billion on Sydney stadiums.

Our schools require additional funding to improve educational standards. Too many schools in NSW are overcrowded. There are 77,955 people on NSW hospital waiting lists – a record high. There are many instances of where improvements are needed in our health and education systems. 

My priority is fixing these problems, not spending precious taxpayer funds on stadiums in Sydney.  

But whether you agree or disagree, I believe that the people of New South Wales deserve a say. It is your money. It should be your decision. 

That’s why I am calling on the Berejiklian Government to halt the demolition of the Sydney Allianz Stadium and make the state election in four months a referendum on their Sydney stadiums policy.

At the last state election the Liberals and Nationals said they would spend $600 million on sports stadiums. Now it’s more than $2.2billion. It is time for you to decide.
