State Liberal Leader Steven Marshall will spend the final day of the election campaign on the shop floor of a range of South Australian businesses in his push to secure a majority Liberal Government.
“After 16 years, it’s time for South Australians to close the book on Labor and open the Liberal Party’s Strong Plan for Real Change for more jobs, lower costs and better services,” said State Liberal Leader Steven Marshall.
“Today I’ll be working with business operators and their employees throughout the day, because small and medium businesses are the engine room of our state’s economy, and they need a government that understands the challenges they face.
“If elected, my government will move away from Labor’s approach of picking winners, and focus on lowering costs for all businesses in South Australia.
“We’ll do this by scrapping payroll tax for all small businesses, deregulating shop trading hours, slashing ESL bills by 50 per cent, capping council rate increases, and reducing land tax.
“For too long, South Australian businesses have been burdened by Labor’s sky-high electricity prices, punishing taxes, and strangling regulation and red tape.
“Thankfully, for South Australians, tomorrow they get their opportunity to hit the reset button and vote for a State Liberal Government which will work every day in the best interests of every South Australian.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to roll up my sleeves and get to work with a number of local businesses across Adelaide, because businesses in this state need a government which is prepared to work in their interests, lowering costs for them, helping them to create jobs and grow our economy.
“For too long, businesses have been demonised in this state by a union-led Weatherill Labor Government; one of the most anti-business governments in the state’s history.
“South Australia is a great state, but it’s been let down by a tired, arrogant and secretive government.
“The Liberal Party is ready. We’ve got a strong plan for the future of South Australia, to grow the economy and create more jobs so that businesses can thrive, with more opportunities for our young people to stay in SA.”
