Community Shared Statement for the ACT 2016 Election released

26 August 2016

Today we have released our Community Shared Statement for the ACT 2016 Election which has been endorsed by 19 representative and peak bodies. Our shared statement seeks commitments from candidates on city infrastructure, economic development, social infrastructure, services and our local environment. It was covered in this piece by Christopher Knaus in The Canberra Times today. 

This shared statement is a sign of the growing maturity of the community sector that has found a way to pursue distinct agendas on many issues, but also come together to lay out a shared agenda for delivering a future in which Canberra is a great place to live regardless of your age, your cultural background or your individual circumstances.
