From Max

I am excited to have been selected as the Greens candidate for Griffith. People have lost faith in a political system that puts the interests of a few big corporations ahead of the rest of us.

I passionately believe positive change is possible. We can ensure everyone has access to a good steady, job and is guaranteed a comfortable home.

We can roll back the Coalition and the ALP’s privatisation of our essential services, like electricity, and bring them back into public hands so they’re run for people, not profit.

We can have high quality, free education from childcare to university and TAFE. And we can afford to invest in the crucial public infrastructure we need like public transport, schools and hospitals.

We can achieve all of this if we just ask the super wealthy CEOs and wealthiest corporations to pay their fair share so we can all benefit from the wealth that all of us create.

If elected I’ll fight to represent you in Canberra and give voice to this sort of politics.

– Max
