STEPH RYAN AND THE LIBERALS SHORT CHANGE EUROA… AGAIN
The Victorian Liberals and Nationals has now confirmed they will cut services, privatise assets, sack workers and stop building the infrastructure Euroa 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.
Costings released yesterday show that the Coalition have budgeted $71.3 million for the Kilmore Bypass, well short of the $162.2 million they’ve have promised.
Every four years the Liberals and Nationals drive up the Hume and promise to build the Kilmore Bypass and every time it turns out to be a lie – you could set your watch to it.
They have ruled out borrowing, tax increases and value capture – meaning they can only pay for their commitments by sacking workers, closing schools and hospitals and cutting services that Victorians rely on.
If they’re breaking election commitments before being elected, how can they be trusted to deliver this project?
Labor is delivering for Euroa, bringing 400 jobs with the new pre-cast concrete facility, investing in local schools and doubling spending on road maintenance.
The last time the Liberals were in power they broke their promise to the Kilmore community to build the bypass, sacked 450 workers at VicRoads and slashed roads spending.
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.
