Put a fighter in the parliament
Housing stress is a major problem for most ordinary people. There are a number of things that the State government could do to offer people some relief.
Massive investment in public housing would help wipe out the waiting list and also create thousands of jobs. At the same time public housing rents should be capped at no more than 25% of income.
While expanding public housing the government could also introduce rent controls for the private rental sector. Victoria has had forms of rent control in the past and cities like New York still regulate private rents today.
If elected Stephen would fight for reforms like this in the parliament but also continue his work helping to fight for affordable housing for all.
