Dean’s vision for Eden Monaro

Dean believes that government is not the answer to your problems, that government is the problem. High taxation, regulation and red tape have been a corner stone of many problems facing Eden Monaro.


What Dean McCrae Will Do For Eden Monaro





We are all in this together

Australians are facing uncertainty. People are losing their jobs, taking a pay cut or not sure if their workplace will be open in the future. Our political class still live off the hard-earned cash they tax from us. If elected Dean will move to have politician and senior bureaucrat pay reduced by 20% to relieve some of the burden on the struggling Australian




The road to recovery

From fire, to flood now to the effects of COVID-19, the people of Eden Monaro have faced terrible adversity. If elected, Dean will work to have Eden Monaro declared a special economic zone which will see the freezing of federal taxes such as income tax, fuel excise, alcohol excise, tobacco excise and company tax to ensure citizens are not overburdened. 




Standing up for regional NSW

The Liberal/National Coalition claims to care about regional Australia, but in reality, they only care about who is in the top job. The Murray Darling Basin Plan sends water to South Australia instead of being allocated for farmers in NSW. If elected, Dean will fight to disband the failed Murray Darling Basin Plan to put our farmers first.




Reducing the burden

If elected, Dean will work tirelessly to abolish inefficient and burdensome taxation for all Australians. Petrol tax, the cigarette tax, the beer tax and GST on electricity bills should all be abolished to make life easier for already struggling Australians. Dean will also work to reduce income tax to a flat 20% so struggling Australians have more money in their pocket.




Taxpayer money for Australian taxpayers

The COVID-19 crisis represents a failure of international institutions. The World Health Organisation (WHO) which Australian taxpayers fund through generous grants, failed to release the seriousness of the biological threat growing in China. The Chinese Communist Party was able to use its considerable influence to ensure that information did not get out. Generous Australians taxpayers should not have to contribute to a negligent and corrupt institution.
