Kylea shares her week on the campaign trail

Week 33: Why we need more reason and consensus, and less grandstanding

Housing affordability is one of our society’s most pressing issues, but has unfortunately — and predictably — become overly politicised as Election Day nears.

Let’s be clear: This is not a problem that we can solve just by throwing money at it. Housing affordability is a complex problem that has been building for decades. And just like climate change, it requires a transparent, non-political, evidence-based process to develop long-term, sustainable solutions.

As an Independent, I will never be one to put "party interests before national interest". That's why you won't see me grandstanding about short-term subsidies or grandiose, untested schemes. What I'm proposing is a National Affordability Summit to take place in the next 6 months, to bring together the stakeholders from industry, governments and communities, to agree on and implement solutions.

In some personal news, I'm sad to say that I tested positive for Covid yesterday, which means I will be campaigning on Zoom, instead of in-person, in the week ahead. With early voting opening on Monday, I hope you'll consider signing up for tomorrow's "Super Saturday" of campaigning. Please also speak with your friends and family over the weekend about why you are supporting the Tink campaign.

We are so close to the finish line, North Sydney! With your help, I know we will change the climate in Canberra.
