Candidates’ Survey Responses for ACT Election 2016 

Response by Leigh WATSON – Independent for Ginninderra

I would you like you to know that I am standing on the major platform of affordable housing – the only candidate to do so. I actually have a strategy for doing this

I firmly believe that a housing first response is the only way to combat homelessness and I get a little impatient when discussions pose the question on how to solve this issue.

I also believe that all issues that are currently plaguing the Canberra community – gambling, domestic violence, substance abuse – can be directly traced to housing affordability and other cost of living pressures.
