Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens’ Leader

With the Hodgman Liberals in the spotlight over claims of nepotism and misconduct, the Integrity Commission’s recommendations released today are overdue.

It is well past time the Premier listened to, and acted on, the Commission’s advice for strengthening transparency, integrity and public confidence in government and Parliamentarians.

State Service Public Transport Investment Needed

Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens Leader and Transport spokesperson

If we're serious about improving public transport and reducing traffic, government has to spend a bit more to get more people on buses.
