Monbulk – Getting on with it
Thanks to your support, James Merlino is working with the Andrews Labor Government to deliver promises, including:
Our $320 million TAFE Rescue Fund is flowing, saving campuses on the brink and helping them grow. We are supporting training courses to give Victorians the skills they need for the jobs they want.
CAPPING YOUR RATES
Local ratepayers expect council to use their rates responsibly, rather than funding junkets and lavish expense accounts. We are capping rates. From July 2016, Yarra Ranges Shire Council will no longer be able to raise your rates above CPI without justifying why.
ENDING THE AMBULANCE CRISIS
We’ve ended the previous Liberal Government’s war on paramedics. Our paramedics are among the most dedicated and hardest working people in our community. By working with them – not against them – we’re finding the minutes that save lives and ending the ambulance crisis.
FAMILY VIOLENCE ROYAL COMMISSION
Family violence is the biggest law and order challenge in our state. We have established the Royal Commission into Family Violence give us the answers we need and nothing will be off limits.
TACKLING THE ICE EPIDEMIC
Ice is tearing families apart and ruining lives. The time to act is now. We have released Victoria’s Ice Action Plan – a landmark, $45.5 million effort to reduce the supply, demand and harm of ice. It will stop this drug on the streets and at the source.
