Why politics matter?

It’s scary to think most of all my inspiring friends who are passionate about creating change for the better are far from having a conversation about politics. It’s either boring, confusing or overwhelming, but being quite frank that is not good enough. We don’t have time to petty theΒ boring, confusing or overwhelming vibes as forests are being destroyed, turtles are are dying from ingesting plastics and seas are creeping closer to shore squeezing beaches into non existence.

This is why every one of my friends should be involved in politics. Either talking about it, enrolled to vote or be a contributing member of their chosen party. Because this is where change occurs, policies put forward and negotiations played out to find the best solution (or where the majority wins which isn’t always the best solution – look at Queensland….). For too long the business as usual approach has prevailed over preservation and conservation, leaving the hippies behind the corporate world.

It’s time for change, ’cause if we don’t change not much will be left.

I am inspired to share this ’cause I am proud of and empowered by my boyfriend’s passion to create change through politics. Daniel Kwon, the Candidate for the Broadwater Electorate, is creating that possibility for our community to have an inspiring, youthful and passionate political leader. A leader who will stand up for what matters and create change for the better… for…

– MENTAL ILLNESS, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, HOMELESSNESS, FINANCIAL HARDSHIP, BROKEN FAMILIES, SMALL BUSINESS, EDUCATION, YOUTH UNEMPLOYMENT, THE ENVIRONMENT, SUSTAINABLE ENERGY, PUBLIC TRANSPORT, HEALTH AND CONNECTED COMMUNITIES. AND MORE.

What are you concerned about it? What are you passionate about? What are you doing to create change? Make sure your political leader knows about it and if you are in Broadwater tell Daniel Kwon today….Β
