New South Wales is in a cost-of-living crisis. And yet, the NSW Labor Government is cutting vital cost-of-living relief for seniors.
The Regional Seniors Travel Card has supported over a million seniors living in rural and regional NSW. Our seniors have been heavily impacted by the rising cost-of-living; they need more support, not less.
As your local Member, I am constantly hearing from elderly constituents in the Ballina electorate who rely on the Seniors’ Travel Card to see a doctor, visit family, or participate in social activities.
Ballina is one of the oldest electorates in New South Wales, but it’s also one of the most unaffordable. Our seniors deserve a government who will stand up for real cost-of-living relief.
The government needs to act urgently to reinstate the Regional Seniors Travel Card, and pursue further cost-of-living relief for our seniors.
