Build a Better Future

Geoff Williams will take responsibility for issues facing our region. As a member of Anthony Albanese’s team, Geoff will ensure we emerge from COVID-19 in a better place to ensure a better future for us all.

Buy Local Create Local Jobs

Geoff believes in bringing manufacturing back to Queensland to enhance job opportunities for Wide Bay locals.

After almost a decade of sending manufacturing offshore and neglecting Australian workers, we’ve seen the consequences: fewer jobs, missed opportunities, and a nation left exposed when coronavirus hit. Labor will rebuild our proud manufacturing industry, and build a future made right here in Australia.

Rewiring Australia Revitalising Industry

A vote for Geoff and an Albanese government will deliver a plan to Rewire the Nation. Australia should be a renewable energy super power, but our electricity grid is hopelessly out of date.

This plan will revitalise traditional industries like steel and aluminium, and allow growth in new sectors like hydrogen and battery production. It will also support apprenticeships. Read more here.

Disaster Relief Fund

For too long the residents of Wide Bay have been let down by the Morrison Government’s failure to plan ahead. Morrison waits until a problems turns into a crisis before he mismanages it.

An Albanese Labor Goverment will provide a Disaster Relief Fund of $200 million per year.

Affordable and Social Housing

The Morrison Government has cut social housing and homelessness funding by $1 billion.

An Albanese Labor Government will establish the Housing Australia Future Fund to invest in social housing, and build tens of thousands of social and affordable housing to fix our housing crisis.

This will create thousands of jobs now and into the future. Read more here.

Cheaper Child Care

Geoff supports Wide Bay working families and women through Labor’s cheaper child care plan. It is no secret that working families with children in child care are struggling with stagnant wage growth and ever increasing costs of living.

Women shouldn’t be forced to choose between their family and their jobs.

An Albanese Labor government will make child care cheaper for 96% of families. Read more here.

Powering Australia

Wide Bay region has a wide range of industry and mining jobs. Through Labor’s Powering Australia policy, funding will be available to transition industries to new technology.

Geoff will advocate strongly on behalf of Wide Bay to ensure our region benefits and enjoys the economic outcomes that will flow from this policy.
