BRIAN PAYNTER AND THE LIBERALS SHORT CHANGE BASS

Matthew Guy has today confirmed they will cut services, privatise assets, sack workers and stop building the infrastructure Bass needs.

They have revealed a massive $39 billion budget black hole and secret plans to cut services and sack workers on the eve of the state election.

For Bass, the Coalition has confirmed that cuts continue to be in their DNA, with their costings revealing Brian Paynter has failed to ensure the promises he’s made to the Bass community will be delivered.

Completely missing from their costings is his $5.7 million promise to deliver a new Clyde North Fire Station and the Pakenham Henry Road Secondary School – despite Mr Paynter rushing to take credit for both commitments.

When it comes to funding our emergency services, you can’t trust the Liberals. When in Government, they cut $66 million from our fire services and this year they lied about religion to deny our hardworking firefighters much needed presumptive rights.

In contrast, Labor has provided more support and funding to our all of our emergency workers to ensure they can keep the community safe.

Only Labor will ensure that families in our fastest growing communities will get the services they need.

A re-elected Andrews Labor Government will deliver 100 new schools including Pakenham Henry Road 7-12 Secondary School, which will open in 2021. This is in contrast to the cuts and closures under former Liberal Governments – they cut more than 300 schools and slashed funding.

Labor will keep standing up against Liberal cuts and closures – and continue our record as a government for hardworking families, not corporations.

Only Labor has a fully-costed, fully-funded plan that delivers for all Victorians.

“The proof is now on paper – Matthew Guy will sack workers and cut services that Victorians rely on to pay for his promises.”

“Only Labor has a fully-costed, fully-funded plan that delivers for all Victorians.”

Quotes attributable to Labor Candidate for Bass Jordan Crugnale

“We all know the legacy of the Liberals is one of cuts and closures.”

“Only Labor will deliver a brand new school for our local community to have the certainty they need that their kids will be able to attend a great local school, close to home.”
