Public Housing in Redfern and Waterloo a real indictment of the Liberals

People living in Public Housing in my electorate in the suburbs of Redfern and Waterloo continue to live in fear and squalor. Public policy failings include maintenance and a distinct lack of support services. 

Is it any wonder when $37 million was cut to the Public Housing Maintenance budget? Now after the failure of one Minister’s administration, her replacement is a Minister from Vaucluse. I’m not sure how many residents from Vaucluse would be able to relate to the dreadful conditions that my constituents live in, which would be unacceptable for a developing country, let alone inner city Australia.

A Current Affair recently filmed the violence, anti social behaviour, and drug dealing that is rife in that area. As I said in the interview; When merchant bankers run the government instead of people caring about the poor this is the product".
