Terri Butler MP - Labor for Griffith

Terri is a champion for the Southside, and for the things that matter to all of us. She’s a strong voice for our future, in our national parliament and beyond it.

Terri Butler puts people first. While Malcolm Turnbull says one thing and does another, Terri stays true to the values and interests of our Southside community.

That’s why she’s fought Malcolm Turnbull and the Liberals’ cuts to health, education and pensions, campaigned for better broadband, stood up for Aussie jobs, and demanded real action on climate change. She believes in a fairer and more equal Australia. She fights for Aussie jobs and to make sure multinationals pay their fair share of tax. And she’s stood firm against the Liberals’ plans for $100,000 degrees.

Terri opposes Medicare cuts, and hospital funding cuts that will hit the PA, Mater and Lady Cilento. Terri and Labor have a policy of improving every Southside school - whether it’s a big school like Churchie, Lourdes, or Cav Road, or a smaller school like St Ita’s or Seville Road -  and getting kids more individual attention, from better-trained teachers. And together with our community Terri Butler and Labor defeated the Liberals’ pension cuts, which would have made cost-of-living pressures worse for so many southside households.

A vote for Terri Butler is a vote to have marriage equality by October. It’s a vote for 50% renewables by 2030. It’s a vote against the Liberals’ cash-for-polluters scheme.

And it’s a vote for someone will always stand up against the Liberals’ cuts and be a champion for our local area. Terri Butler will put people first.
