The spirit and essence of APP policies are guided by a commitment to traditional Australian values, family values, and the protection and preservation of Australian independence. APP seeks to strengthen the principles of democracy and increase political accountability in the interests of social cohesiveness and sustainability.
This will be the first time I have contested local council elections so I am naturally excited about the prospect of serving my local community. I will offer a fresh approach to local politics.
I look forward to hearing about your concerns and forming a partnership with you to better our shared way of life in this area.
- Increase free parking from 15 mins. to 30 mins. and expand the programme on a permanent basis.
- Increase business-parking permits for business owners.
- Oppose the current proposal for Balmain Tigers property re-development.
- Lobby council to discontinue funding for divisive multiculturalism policies and their associated political propaganda.
- Challenge council’s dictatorial and undemocratic bureaucratic rules imposed on local businesses and home-owners, due to supposed human-caused climate change.
- Sharia free zone! The people of the Wangal ward declare this as a core value of Australian society.
PROTECT THE INNER WEST FROM HIGH RISE OVER-DEVELOPMENT
The current proposal to re-develop the Balmain Leagues Club should be stopped. The proposal is out of character for an area with historic residences and buildings worth preserving. The size of the proposal would set a precedent for other developments.
Regrettably former NSW Labor State governments initiated the move and transferred decision making on large development proposals to the JRPP and State Planning for approval. As a result the residents of Rozelle and the Inner West now face the prospect of an unreasonable Balmain Tigers redevelopment.
I do not support the ridiculous size of the current proposal. I will work diligently to oppose the current scale of the re-development. I also believe Councilors need to stand up to the current State government and demand decision-making be returned to local councils.
High levels of unsustainable immigration supported by Labor, Liberal and Green political parties drive the pressure for more urban development. The APP cares for working people and the environment and supports true green policy on reducing immigration to sustainable levels.
STOP SOCIAL & CULTURAL ENGINEERING
The Greens and Labor have accommodated political and ideologically-driven social, cultural and environmental policies. Both parties on all levels of government continue to reject independent empirical science and base their policies instead on politicised pseudoscience and fanatical gaia beliefs. They promote propaganda on supposed man-made climate change and multiculturalism. I believe the waste, indoctrination and totalitarian nature of social engineering politics needs to end. I will lobby fellow Councillors to remove directives and language on multiculturalism and the lies surrounding man-made climate change.
Leichhardt Council has become a signatory to United Nations initiatives on climate change. The APP supports local sustainability but not ceding authority to a foreign organisation with a history of anti-growth and anti-people policies and principles. UN-sanctioned agendas and agreements impede renovation Development Applications, drive up costs and spread misinformation on climate change and sustainability.
STOP THE PARKING FINES CIRCUS
The attitude of Council needs to change in regard to parking restrictions and fines. The local community needs a break from the over-zealous directives parking wardens receive from council. The parking wardens are innocent people who have been put under immense pressure resulting in occasional authoritarian and rude behaviour towards car users. The Luddites in council need to accept that the car is here to stay and residents need more car spaces and parking options.
I will work on behalf of local residents to increase ‘free parking’ spots from 15 mins. to 30 mins. and expand the project to include other areas (not on a trial basis, but on a permanent basis). Busy mums and families are often faced with parking restrictions and possible fines due to restrictive parking regimes.
Council needs to foster economic growth and welcome new business to the municipality. A small gesture is to offer local businesses more parking permits to reflect needs of their staff.
SUPPORT AUSTRALIAN VALUES – ESTABLISH A SHARIA FREE ZONE
The sharia legal code has no place in Australian society. I will fight for Leichhardt Council to be the first “sharia free zone” in Australia. It is time Councillors put aside their differences and joined together against a barbaric legal code that has no place in the Leichhardt Municipality.
Sharia law and associated cultural practices encourage repression of women, female genital mutilation, stoning of homosexuals, honour killings, and the wearing of burqas. The residents of Leichhardt municipality cannot afford to sit idle and watch our secular and progressive society be challenged by religious extremism. The people of the Inner West need to make a stand against sharia law and declare the municipality “sharia free”.
