Show of hands on child-sex offenders

IT would seem that two very important issues have eluded this election so far.

As an advocate for realistic sentencing of child-sex offenders and for a national sex-offenders registry, I will now challenge my fellow election candidates to either show their support for minimum mandatory 20-year sentences for pedophiles, 15-year terms for the procures of child porn and to back a national registry of sex offenders, or, explain why not.

The other issue that has not been raised is air conditioning for government housing. This is not only a humanitarian issue, but we must look at it from the perspective of students living like this.

How can a Year 12 student study in a room effectively when it’s 40C? This puts low socio-economic students at a severe disadvantage.

If the government can spend hundreds of millions of tax-payers money on advertising, then they can spare a bit delivering a better future for our kids.

Independent candidate for Mildura
