I was so proud to be in Carrum Downs last weekend, backing Labor’s fantastic candidate for Dunkley, Jodie Belyea. Jodie is a mum with a mortgage, and she’s a local who has already had some great wins fighting for her community. She will be an absolute champion for her community in this place.

While doorknocking in Dunkley, I heard how families are under the pump with rising costs at the supermarket and with household bills. People in Carrum Downs told me they welcome Labor’s tax cuts—working mums and dads who are feeling cost-of-living pressures and who will directly benefit from our tax cuts—because our tax cuts will put money back into the pockets of every taxpayer in Dunkley and every taxpayer in Australia, alongside savings our government is already providing with our cheaper child care, cheaper medicines, making it easier to see a bulk billing GP, and, of course, the establishment of our Medicare Urgent Care Clinics, including one in Frankston.

Our government is focused on helping people grappling with cost-of-living pressures. And of course we know there’s more to be done, and I know our tremendous Treasurer is focused on this. But in contrast, those opposite have voted time and time again against measures to reduce cost-of-living pressures. Peter Dutton wants the people in Dunkley to work longer for less. That’s why we need Jodie in here as part of a Labor government to fight for the people of Dunkley and provide them with real cost-of-living relief.
