Statement from Terri Butler

“I support a fair pathway to citizenship for New Zealanders long term resident in Australia.”

“As the Shadow Minister for Young Australians and Youth Affairs I focus on making sure young people have a voice in the decisions that affect them. Decisions made in governments and parliaments have a real impact on their lives and they deserve a say. As Shadow Minister for Employment Services, Workforce Participation and Future of Work, she fights for opportunities for people who are out of paid work to be supported into employment or entrepreneurship.

But my role as the local member is always my most important job. I am a strong voice for the Southside, working to make sure locals have access to healthcare, fighting for fair funding for schools, and advocating for more renewables and lower emissions. I support a fair pathway to citizenship for New Zealanders long term resident in Australia.”
