Michael Berkman - Greens - QQQ_4220

The people in Maiwar need a local representative who is passionate about ensuring a positive outcome for the community on important issues like housing affordability, public transport, and appropriate property development.

Rampant property development is spreading across the electorate with no thought given to impacts on local schools, public transport or main roads that are already under pressure. Developers are submitting development applications that go against neighbourhood plans and public needs, yet they’re approved by our city council and state government without adequate consultation or consideration.

I want to see our parliament put Queenslanders before the profits of corporations and that’s why I support the Greens’ stand on banning political donations from property developers, gambling, tobacco and alcohol corporations. It’s time we put the power back in the hands of the people and started to clean up politics.

The Greens are a growing force because we have demonstrated that we will not compromise on those issues that are important to you but we also offer practical policies to achieve real outcomes for Australians.

As the representative of our local community in Queensland’s parliament, I will always put people and community before profit.
