There are over 2,200 poker machines in the Northern Beaches, and residents lose $458,500 to pokies every single day.
On November 28th, the Northern Beaches Council is hearing two motions:
- To limit poker machines in the Northern Beaches region
- To call on the State government to cap pokie numbers and to develop a Council Gambling Harm Management Strategy.
We want the Council to know that this is an issue that residents take seriously and expect them to act on. But for that to happen, we need you to send them an email!
We've pre-written a letter so all you need to do is pop in your details and hit send! However, if you can, add a personal comment explaining why this matters to you! It'll be very persuasive for councillors who are trying to understand community sentiment.
We need the councillors to take pokie harm seriously and act. Write to the councillors now!
