Labor left a $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.

Jamie has been doorknocking public housing properties to survey tenants and better understand the most common issues.
