Congratulations to Victorian Labor, now the climate action work starts
Climate Action Moreland congratulates the election of the Daniel Andrews led Labor Government in Victoria and are hopeful for strong progress on climate mitigation and adaptation programs at the State level with this new Government.
We also congratulate Labor MPs Jane Garrett (Brunswick), Lizzie Blandthorn (Pascoe Vale) and Frank McGuire (Broadmeadows) on being elected to the Legislative Assembly to represent the citizens of Moreland.
Our congratulations also to our MPs elected to the Legislative Council for Northern Metro region:
- Jenny Mikakos and Nazih Elasmar (Labor)
- Craig Ondarchie (Liberal)
- Greg Barber (Greens)
- Fiona Pattern (Australian Sex Party)
Our thanks to all the candidates who attended our climate forum for the election to explain their party policies and personal views on taking effective action in tackling climate change. These public forums are important avenues for direct community debate.
As an active community group we endeavour to have robust discussion and debate on climate action with all our representatives from every level of government: from Local Councillors, State MPs, to our Federal MPs and Senators.
We look forward to working and engaging positively with ALL our elected State Government representatives over the next 4 years to bring about substantive action in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to the impacts of climate change.
In particular, as residents of Moreland this means the impact of increasing temperatures and heatwave events and increase in intensity of storm events.
