Melbourne, 5 April: Labor has come down heavily on Prime Minister Turnbull’s education cuts. Shadow Finance Minister Tony Burke talking to the multicultural media said, “ He would cut all funding to public schools and continue funding the private schools.”
Tony Burke was in Glen Waverley introducing three Labor candidates, i.e., Julian Hill (Bruce), Stefanie Pressi (Chisholm) and Jennifer Yang (Senate).
Answering to a SAT question, Tony Burke commenting to the ‘Panama Papers’ story said, Labor had a fully costed plan to make MNCs pay more tax.
“ We want foreign investment but they should pay their tax,” he said.
Julian Hill, grown-up in the southeast, attended high school in Glen Waverley with degrees in science and law and worked for the current federal member for Bruce, Alan Griffin.
Stefanie Pessi, takes over from Anna Burke who served as the member for Chisholm since 1998.
Jennifer Yang, two times Mayor of Manningham (2012/13 and 2015/16) is contesting for the Senate.
Answering to a question during the media interaction, she said, I want multicultural communities to be reflected in the Australian Parliament though things cannot change overnight.
The three Labor candidates have expressed willingness to discuss issues and hear suggestions on local or other issues.
