Since Daniel Andrews and Labor came to office the unemployment rate in the Bass Coast Shire has risen from 5.9% to 8.3% in June 2016.
The Liberal Nationals Coalition is working on a plan to manage Victoria’s population to drive economic growth and create new job opportunities throughout all of Victoria.
The Andrews Labor Government has no economic plan or jobs plan for regional Victoria.
Daniel Andrews is running a Melbourne- centric government that doesn’t care about regional Victorians.
Comments attributable to Brian Paynter MP, State Member for Bass
The Andrews government needs to release funds into the Bass Coast for important local projects such as the Wonthaggi Secondary School rebuild and also recreational and sporting facilities such as basketball and aquatic centres which are sadly lacking.
I’ve continually requested funds to be injected into our local community and with the recent sale of the Port of Melbourne there is no longer any excuses.
