Courage and conviction - I can only imagine his heartbreak.
"We're here because my daughter has no voice. She was murdered last week and she was taken from us, shot 9 times on the third floor. We as a country failed our ...children. This shouldn't happen."- Andrew Pollack, father of Meadow Pollack, who was killed in Florida school shooting last week. http://abcn.ws/2sJgUKO
See what a difference can be done when you have a Liberal Cr advocate to a Liberal state government. Great work by Christine Forster!

NSW GOVERNMENT AGREES TO RELAX LOCKOUTS FOR MARDI GRAS
The NSW State government has responded positively to my request for a relaxation of lice...nced venue lockout laws in Oxford Street for this year’s 40th anniversary Mardi Gras celebration.
“I wrote to NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian several weeks ago suggesting that relaxing the lockouts for this important occasion would be a special gesture of goodwill for the LGBTIQ community, many members of which still hold raw memories of the terrible events which surrounded the first Mardi Gras in 1978,” Councillor Forster said. “Confirmation that the government has agreed to the exemption is also particularly poignant given the community is celebrating the historic passing of Australia’s same-sex marriage legislation on 7 December 2017.”
"It was obvious four years ago that some sort of circuit breaker was required to end the cycle of alcohol-fuelled street violence, particularly in Kings Cross. These laws have now served their purpose, however, and it may be possible that they can safely be wound back," Councillor Forster said. “I think the exemptions announced today could serve as a useful trial, providing evidence as to whether consideration can be given to the relaxation of the 1:30am lockout more broadly,” she added.
Last night we hear that Clover Moore and her hack team wouldn't back the idea of exploring a strategic plan for Kings Cross and Potts Point. This is a disgraceful act but the Clover Moore party. When a town goes through so much change as this one has a council is suppose to serve the best interests of its citizens.
Company tax is paid on profits, so when companies make losses instead, they don't pay it. Amazing, huh? And since 1989, the tax system has allowed losses in pr...evious years to be carried forward – so companies pay tax on the rolling average of their profits and losses. This is stuff you learn in high school. - via Financial Review

Great to hear Liberal Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull & Premier Gladys Berejiklian talking up the NSW and Australia economy. NSW is the number 1 economic state! Creating tens of thousands of jobs each year! Strong Liberal values represent smaller business taxes, private enterprise and family values is what our nation needs.
