Liberals to 'uphold Australian values'
Liberal candidates for the Central Coast Council will "uphold Australian values", according to Gosford West candidate Mr Troy Marquart.
Australia Day is a day of celebration for people across the Central Coast, he said.
"Aussie flags are flying high across our region on January 26 every year, as locals flock to our beautiful local parks, beaches and waterways with family and friends.
"It's a day when we can celebrate what unites us as people, and Australians.
"We recognise and honour our first Australians and our newest migrant citizens.
"We are united in our Australian values.
"We celebrate those on Australia Day.
"A vote for the Liberal Party on September 9 at the Central Coast Council election will ensure these values are protected.
"A vote for any other Party will potentially endanger these values.
"Labor and The Greens confirmed that they want to change the date of Australia Day.
"As we have seen with the likes of Yarra and Darebin Councils in Victoria, this move would hijack and politicise Australia Day and could put at risk the power of Central Coast Council to host citizenship ceremonies.
"This attack on Australia Day is an attack on our Australian values and gives local voters a snapshot of what to expect from Labor and The Greens on the Central Coast."
