Family is important to me.

From the love and care my mum showed towards my twin brother and I - to the love I have for my wife and children. I am driven to stand up for working  and middle class families.

Growing up in the suburbs, I watched as my mum made sacrifices.

She saved to put my twin brother and I through school and herself through university.

She made sacrifices to pay for the things that are important.

Things like health, education, and a good job.

That’s why I have spent my adult life standing up for working people, and I always will.

I will not stand by while Mr Turnbull’s Liberals who are so out of touch with everyday Australians, who have no economic plan for the future of this country except for plans that will cost families more while 1 in 5 big businesses pay zero tax.
Mr Turnbull has made a choice to cost families more and put big business first.

Labor has made a choice too.

We’ll Put People First.

Bill Shorten husband and dad (and dog owner)

My wife Chloe and I have three wonderful kids: Georgette, Rupert and Clementine. I love being a dad and I love spending time with my family, especially on Saturdays when I become a bus driver shuttling them all from a sport lesson here to a
ballet lesson there.

Chloe, the kids, and I - also love our two pet British Bulldogs and honorary family members Theodore and Matilda.

My wife and I want the best for our kids and everyone else’s too.

Family is important to me. I want the best for my family and all middle class and working class families across Australia.

That's what drives me.
