Only vote 1 or give your own preferences
Jim McGoldrick has lived and worked as a Plumber in the electorate for the past 20 years. He has in his profession been to just about every street in the area and knows and talks to the locals on their issues and expectations.
As former President of the South West Sydney Community Alliance Jim was at the forefront in organizing the fight against the proposal to dump an International Airport at Holsworthy. A great win was scored for the Community.
He is a former president of the Hammondville, Holsworthy & Wattle Grove Amateur Swimming Club and Manager of a Chipping Norton Soccer team during 2010.
He is a former convener of the Local community precinct committee and has since moving from Five dock been actively involved and known in most of the Menai Community.
He worked to fight bringing Jets into Bankstown Airport and ensured the Nuclear Reactor was built to a high standard by being a critic of the plans and design of the new reactor.
Jim has seen the whole electorate grow up and become one of the best areas in Sydney to live.
He is now a Councillor at Liverpool City Council and knows what a struggle it is to put bread on the table at meal time and to see something you love burn to the ground.
Jim has listened and asked the Community what they want, overall the reply was honesty from Politicians and political parties as residents have no faith in the Labor, Liberals or Greens.
Such things as, the costs of living, health, community safety and more police with zero tolerance are desperately needed. Electricity and carbon tax blunders have soured the community towards all political parties. They want and deserve better roads and lower tolls. Price fixing of the hidden government charges and get the public service working for us.
People must take back their Government from the parties and tell the Government what the people want not what the pollies want for their crazy hidden agendas.
The biggest threat and issue to the electorate are the two Container, truck & rail terminals Intermodal planned by both Liberal and Labor quietly behind the scenes in Macquarie Street.
This will choke the roads in all of the electorate with up to 2000 extra truck movements a day. Travel times to work and recreation will increase dramatically with the 24/7 operation. Heathcote Road and all major roads in the electorate will be worse than the M5 in peak hours.
Diesel fumes will poison the electorate where proven evidence has shown the diesel fumes to cause Heart disease, Cancer, Asthma, breathing diseases, children’s development, diabetes, sexual dysfunction, all caused by minute particulate matter that belches from trucks and trains that you will breath in and be absorbed into your skin.
I don’t want this and you do not want this rubbish as well.
I will be fighting for you on all these issues and we will win the battle sometimes and lose a few as well. One thing you will know is I roll up my sleeves and get the job done, because I know talk is cheap.
Try something different, do not be a puppet for the parties that will waste your vote.
I was once a member of the Labor party but resigned in disgust with the way the party lost its way.
I will not support Labor, Liberal or the Greens. I will support YOU.
We should give our preferences to no other candidate, just vote  McGOLDRICK JIM Independent
