More Bikes and Less Pokies

Moonee Valley has a great bike plan, but we need to put more money behind it.  Prioritising cycling and walking in the budget is a must if we are to have a safe, healthy and sustainable community.  Bikes are best...

Unfortunately, I was the only candidate in Myrnong Ward to respond to a survey put out by the Alliance for Gambling Reform - see the article in The Age and the survey responses

I support the removal of all misleading and deceptive features programmed into pokies and I support local governments having proper authority over the location of poker machines in their respective communities. Moonee Valley has one of the highest venues for losses in Airport West and has higher losses per person than surrounding municipalities.
