Come along to find out more about your rights in public housing and how Jamie can help you.
Jamie has been a powerful advocate for public housing tenants and has achieved a number of positive outcomes.
Labor left a disgraceful $300 million backlog in public housing maintenance. In response to Jamie's work in highlighting this issue in the media, in Parliament and the community, we have seen gutters cleaned, bathrooms repaired and dangerous electrical issues fixed. Waiting times on the NSW Housing maintenance line have reportedly dropped and we are finally seeing the start of some positive results.
