Promise Pokie-Harm Prevention Policy for Whittlesea!

Dear Members of Victorian Parliament,

I support the campaign to reduce harmful poker machines.

I call on the political parties to commit to:
- Fewer poker machines
- Reduced operating hours at poker machine venues as a matter of urgency
- ‘Con-free’ poker machines

City of Whittlesea residents are losing $293,000 to pokies EVERY DAY!
Poker machines are rigged. They are a con – designed to addict and for the player
to lose.

Pokie addiction is linked to high levels of mortgage stress, family violence, crime
and family breakdown. It affects the whole community.
