Green launch 'feel good' election campaign
The ACT Greens have promised a “healthier, more liveable and better connected” Canberra at their official campaign launch for the territory election.
Federal Greens Leader Christine Milne and the four ACT MLAs unveiled the Greens’ key election message before a crowd of the party’s faithful in Civic this morning.
ACT Greens Leader Meredith Hunter promised a positive campaign free from “lazy and unhelpful slogans”.
“We believe that we have such great ideas that really benefit so many that we don’t need to spend time just doing those negative campaigns,” she said.
“I don’t think the majority of Australians want to see those negative campaigns.”
The party announced a $31 million bus transport package, including $21 million to improve the frequency of services and address overcrowding.
Transport spokeswoman Amanda Bresnan also committed $3 million for more school bus services, $3 million for bus services in new suburbs and $2.7 million to begin introducing a hybrid and electric bus fleet.
