Vivek Singha for Blacktown
October 14 is the state by-elections in the state seat of Blacktown. Vivek is standing as an independent candidate and is passionate about improving the healthcare, education and Transport Infrastructure for the region. Below is what he stands for :
Donate generously to make his vision for a better Blacktown a reality:
|When I am elected I will do my best to have a children’s ward in Blacktown Hospital.|
Blacktown in the third largest government area in all of Australia! Despite this , why does the Blacktown hospital not have a Children’s ward??
My own son was admitted to the Westmead Children’s Hospital for over 6 months , and I want a children’s ward for EVERYONE.
We also want research facilities to research and enable preventative rather than reactive medicine.
I am also the founder director of a foundation started to help find a gene therapy cure for FoxG1 syndrome, with my child being the first child diagnosed with this profoundly debilitating single gene disorder in Sydney.
Rather than being defeated by the diagnosis, I believe that there is immense hope to find a cure and to learn how to manage the expression and workings of this very critical gene. One day my Son Kush will be the reason for the development of the cure, and will be the catalyst to improve the lives of many people.
Let us accelerate these new preventative diagnostic technologies to improve quality of life for everyone.
|I stand for teaching coding in schools. We want the children (the future citizens of tomorrow) ready for the jobs of tomorrow.|
The new age economy is going to present jobs that are very different from the present economy.
Public schools need to be the GOLD STANDARD in education.
Also, why do all children need to be sent for tuitions. This is a realty for all students to be able to get into selective schools. Teaching and resourcing in all schools need to improved, especially the schools in the Blacktown area.
With increasing number of young couples moving to the west and with many double income highly skilled parents contributing very generously to the tax base their children deserve better schools with better infrastructure and teaching facilities.
Demountable classrooms are not the answer everywhere. School infrastructure needs to be aligned to the increased enrolments numbers.
|With the M4, M7 and the train line , Infrastructually we are sitting on a goldmine of opportunity.|
Together with the Western Sydney Airport , let us use this great infrastructure to get businesses and development happening right here.
My vision is to have a mid to large sized modern technology park / Special Economic Zone to bring in the technology and jobs of the future - Biotech research, IT startups, FinTech companies and Renewable energy manufacturing back to Blacktown.
The youth of the electorate (18-35) have no prospect except shelf filing or customer service jobs.
Tens of thousands of people from the west go to the city to work everyday. They can find work in Blacktown once the Technology park and Business hub opens in Blacktown.
Why cant we have a TESLA plant or a Amazon Datacentre or a Biotech research lab Hub in here.
My vision is to have people to commute to work TO blacktown (and the west). Rather than, or in addition to spending Billions building infrastructure to transport people to the city everyday, we need people to work locally.
