Greens Launch their Campaign for the Seat of Newcastle

Campaign launchThe Newcastle Greens were joined by NSW Senate candidate Cate Faehrmann to launch the campaign of Councillor Michael Osborne.

“Newcastle can lead the way to a clean energy transition, ensuring our region remains the proud powerhouse of the national economy. We can make this happen by investing in research, innovation and infrastructure for a strong regional economy and jobs after the mining boom,” said Greens Candidate for Newcastle Cr Michael Osborne.

“A clean energy future means improved air quality and local investment for the people of Newcastle, where we have already have the unparalleled expertise and skills in manufacturing and energy industries, and a port that can export to the world,” said Greens Candidate for Newcastle Cr Michael Osborne.

“Whether it’s going to university or TAFE, or taking on a trade – we need an education system that gives every child this opportunity. The Greens will commit an extra $2 billion over the forward estimates on top of the government’s $3 billion to help bring public schools up to the Schooling Resource Standard sooner and oppose Labor’s $2.3 billion cuts to universities,” said Greens Candidate for Newcastle Cr Michael Osborne.

“Newcastle needs investment, not the race to the bottom that is being offered by the two old parties,” said Greens Candidate for Newcastle Cr Michael Osborne.
