I will work to ensure we have a safe and inclusive Victoria where all parts of the city are welcoming. Families, seniors, tourists, and all who live here deserve to experience a community where there is no place to avoid because people do not feel safe.
An increase to our police force, so it is properly resourced, is a first step to a safer city. But, we must also look at prevention to assist the city's vulnerable community that are consumed by substance abuse.
I believe certain members of council ignore this important issue and Victorians want action.
