Community Pact by candidates

DRAFT – UNDER DEVELOPMENT

Our candidates will sign a Public Community Pact to serve the best interests of their community. A proposed Pact will include elements outlined below:

  • I acknowledge that I do not know everything and that I need to listen to my constituents and keep learning.
  • I promise organised, perpetual and coordinated consultation with my constituents through Citizen Legislative Review Groups in which I will focus on the views of my constituents.
  • I promise to serve my electors before the interests of any party or organisation.
  • Except for supply bills, I will cast my vote with my conscience and best judgement in the best interests of the people I serve and represent.
  • I promise to personally serve and behave in a manner that reflects the expectations of the people I serve.
  • The criteria I will apply for my policy choices:
    • I commit to identifying solutions to the society’s problems that are most consistent with liberty. I will never vote for something that undermines the personal freedoms and rights of the people I serve and represent.
    • I will respect and fight for the right of every Australian citizen to freedom of speech, movement and religious belief.
    • I will never support legislation that unnecessarily coerces the People or divides them in any way.
