About Oscar Lobo

Candidate statement

Oscar Carmino Lobo

Electorate Residence: Bentleigh

I am a local, long term resident in the Bentleigh Electorate, and I have contributed actively to the Glen Eira municipality as Councillor and Deputy Mayor.

I will bring central family values to the Victorian Parliament if I am elected. Based on accepting and promoting State law and regulation without intimidation. Addressing population growth within the context of a diverse and multicultural community which values social inclusion. Reducing over reliance on harmful pollutants threatening our children, asthma prone adults, and Victoria’s dynamic agricultural sector faced with increased arid farming conditions. Reducing congestion and increasing renewables needs to be evidenced based.

My passion is for improving probity in Government and business. Allowing small business to grow. Encouraging a healthy, life enhancing population which benefits from sound life skills based education which embraces STEM and the social sciences and is inclusive of competence in community languages. The health, vitality and contribution of first nation members needs to included in this system of accountability, integrity and probity.
