With the NSW State Election fast approaching it is time to ask our would-be representatives where they stand on key local social justice issues.

On the 28th March 2015, NSW electors will be required to vote for the 56th Parliament. In this election 93 candidates for the Legislative Assembly will be elected, and in the Legislative Council 21 of the 42 seats will be contested.

Areas that we are concerned with include:

- Affordable Housing

- Accessibility of Government Services and Support
  (particularly for those without computers, email and/or credit cards)
- Jobs and Opportunity
- Simplifying business entry for all and reducing the cost of doing business in NSW
- Health and well being
- Education and technical training
