Linda Condon –
I am active in the Albert Park Branch and want a more open and transparent ALP. I am an independent/non-aligned ALP member and support Open Labor.
If elected I intend to continue to pursue the following reforms; direct party member participation with at least 50% weighting in pre-selecting Senate candidates; increasing the weighting for local party members in Victorian pre-selections from 50% to 70% and curtailing central intervention in pre-selections. I will also propose that the directly elected National President and Vice Presidents be granted voting rights on the National Executive and that the rulings of the National Disputes Tribunal be binding on the Party.
I want solutions for climate change to be implemented which includes 50% renewable by 2030 and a 50% reduction in emissions by 2030; better and fairer ways to welcome refugees to our country (aligned with Labor for Refugees policies); the signing of a Treaty with the Nations First People; implementation of the Uluru Statement from the Heart; implementation of policies for affordable housing and more investment in social housing; action on static wages by promoting union membership; greater investment in TAFE; investment in infrastructure for electric vehicles and an increased ratio of qualified nurses in aged care.
I am a director of Proactive Sustainability, convener of the Fishermans Bend Network and active on environmental and social issues. I founded the teaching and research centre at Swinburne University – the National Centre for Sustainability, established the TAFE International Green Skills Network, am a member of Labor for Refugees, a member of LEAN, an FEA elected delegate to the last two Victorian State conferences and volunteer for the University of the 3rd Age.
