As a mother, wife and daughter one of my most fundamental values is ensuring my family and friends feel safe as part of the community.
Recently, I spoke to a mother who had the frightening experience of a home invasion while she and her family were at home.
We all expect to feel safe in our homes and community, to feel confident that the government has strong laws and policies in place to protect all of us.
Daniel Andrews and his local MP, Anthony Carbines, made numerous assurances in 2014 to reopen the Heidelberg West Police Station which was closed by the Brumby Labor Government. In November 2017, the Daniel Andrews Labor Government made the decision to use the Police Station for ‘non-policing’ purposes with no plan to increase the police presence or provide a police station in the area.
As the Liberal Candidate for Ivanhoe and a local resident, I am committed to making Ivanhoe a safe and thriving community. Strong and secure communities create a resilient society.
Victorians can no longer afford to have four more years under the Andrews Labor Government and their weak, shambolic management of law and order which puts offenders first and the community last.
I am committed to safe, strong and resilient communities which empower individuals and neighbourhoods to create a life that enhances wellbeing.
Matthew Guy has a plan to fix law and order and, if elected, has a number of solutions designed to keep all our families and the community safe including: mandatory jail sentences for repeat violent offenders, tougher bail laws, respect for victims of crime, and laws which protect our police from violent criminal attacks like police car ramming.

Enough is enough. You can make a difference by voting NO to another 4 years of a Daniel Andrews Labor Government in Victoria.
