Play Music, Not Pokies
Northcote is known for good music, delicious food and great vibes. It's an area that embodies why Melbourne is the world's most liveable city.
But the Northcote electorate has 4 pokie venues which hold 190 pokies. Consequently, Northcote lost over $18 million over the 2016/2017 financial year. That's the equivalent to Northcote residents losing $49,315 every single day.
Pokies are hurting our community and we need our legislators to acknowledge and act on the harm caused. The gambling industry is profiting from a dangerous and deceptive product and they should be held accountable.
We want all candidates in the upcoming by-election to prioritise preventing further pokies harm.
If elected, will you promise to act to protect Northcote?
