We need a Premier who will continue to stand up to the Liberal party’s own hard-right wing, and not end ethics classes or take us backwards on LGBTI rights. Who will keep improving and extending our public transport system, and makes sure major infrastructure like the second Harbour crossing gets built. Who will pursue criminal justice policies that work – in reality, not the imaginations of demagogues – and who will reverse all moves toward mandatory sentencing in this state. Who will keep the Federal government honest on their promise to deliver the Gonski education reforms. Most of all, we need a Premier who won’t be afraid go further in the fight against special interests to bring higher densities to Sydney, and end the crisis of unaffordable housing.
