Bec Cody left school early and did a hairdressing apprenticeship. She worked hard, opened her own salon, and managed a small business. As a unionist, she believes everyone deserves to be paid well and go home safely from work. As an employer in a small business, she also experienced how hard it can be to do the right thing. Bec Cody is focused on making sure it is easier for business to do the right thing.
With an ongoing Federal Liberal Government, Bec Cody knows the ACT needs to find ways to attract new jobs. Building the light rail first to Civic and then Woden, Tuggeranong, the airport and Belconnen will keep Canberra working now, and into the future. The Liberals’ plan to tear up contracts and slash jobs will leave thousands of Canberrans with nowhere to go.
ACT Labor has been tackling domestic violence, and knows we’ve still got a lot more to do.
As with many members of the community, Bec has dealt with the impacts of domestic violence on the family, as well as the community. She knows the answer often isn’t a policeman at the door, but to make sure the community is there to help, to support, to give people options, and make people safe. Bec Cody is committed to keeping on listening, building community, and making sure every family is safe.
Bec Cody has raised two sons locally, and knows the importance of good schools and services. She’s involved in the Vikings Triathlon Club and Park Run’s in Canberra, and understands the social, physical and emotional benefits of keeping fit and healthy. As a single mum, being involved in the community and meeting like minded people offered support during some of the toughest times of her life.
