Northcote by-election is coming up soon and we want to know where the candidates stand on pokies!
The Northcote electorate has 4 pokies 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.
This is a serious problem and whoever wins this election could be in a position to significantly influence state policy given the government's one-seat majority and the state election next year! We need to make sure that the candidates take pokies and gambling reform seriously but to do that, they need to hear from you!
The email to the candidates is ready to go, we just need you to fill in basic details and hit send! It'll only take a minute and you'll be having a significant impact. The candidates need to know this is an issue their electorate cares about and we want them to bring that into the Parliament!
