The Western Australia Party is committed to protecting the community and improving the lives of all of our fellow Sandgropers.
WA’s communities have suffered from decades of neglect from the federal government in Canberra. We have missed out on billions of infrastructure spending because we didn’t have independent Members of Parliament fighting solely for the people of Western Australia. For example, the $1.6 billion cost of Perth Stadium was funded by the state government with no help from the Federal Government despite the Federal Government committing financial resources to similar stadium projects around the country.
Crime continues to rise. We like many West Australian’s are fed up with the state of Crime in WA. Youth Crime, gangs, drug use, robberies, anti-social behaviour and domestic violence are all increasing. We must do something about this so that WA’s communities are safe places to raise a family. The Western Australia Party is working hard to bring back mandatory sentencing, and tougher sentencing for heinous crimes. Additionally, we also want increased funding to go towards the rehabilitation of criminals so that they can re-engage with their communities. Furthermore, we must ensure that our police have more funding so that they can increase training, run 24/7 police stations, and improve staffing.
