NSW Election 2007

As promised, I’ve created a specific section to discuss the upcoming NSW State Election and any ATOD issues covered during the campaign. Apologies to all the readers not in NSW but I will create specific entries for other state elections as they come up as well as the Federal election. Also, it will give an opportunity for each state to learn from the others as far as policy goes.

A lot of readers work for the NSW Government so understandably there’ll be a reluctance to ‘get political’ – but I’m more interested in analysing the potentials behind each announcement during the campaign (which has essentially started).

To get things rolling, what are the predictable policy announcements likely to be made? Police numbers has been a story this week, and that obviously has both positive and negative implications for the AOD field. But what else is likely to be announced?
