‘Isaac Smith has always fought against CSG mining.
‘Unlike Thomas George, Isaac Smith has been fighting to stop CSG mining since the movement began in 2009. The Liberal/National’s Government renewed the local CSG Licence for 6 years in December. Labor will ban CSG across the Northern Rivers.
‘Like all parents, Isaac and Denise want the best for their four kids. That’s why Isaac fought to ensure Labor will ban CSG across the Northern Rivers to protect our water, our farmland and our way of life for future generations.
‘Isaac has lived in the Northern Rivers all his life. Isaac loves our region and and that’s why he’s working hard to protect it and make it an even better place to live, work and raise a family.
‘Isaac understands that roads across the Lismore electorate need to be upgraded. Isaac will fight to deliver safer local roads for everyone who drives on them, especially our young people.
‘Isaac will ensure Lismore Base Hospital is upgraded. He will fight the Nationals’ $3 billion cuts to Health and Hospitals because he wants more investment in our local hospitals, not less.’
