I Support Dr Susan Rennie
Woolies is generating 11.7% of its annual profit from its pokie business. You have 13,000 pokies across 330 venues all around Australia and many are open 20 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The community loses more than $12 billion to pokies every year.
Whittlesea is already losing $107 million annually from pokies, making it one of the most severely impacted municipalities in Victoria. Yet Woolworths forced the Council to spend tens of thousands to defend their decision not to approve more pokies in the Commercial Hotel.
This pokie-greed is hurting our communities!
Woolworths cannot be a family-friendly business whilst reaping huge profits from a product that is devastating Australian families every day.
I stand with Dr Susan Rennie in her bid to run for the board. Woolworths needs to get out of the pokie business and stick to being the Fresh Food people!
