Although the Liberal Government, like so many of their promises (not forgetting the Flinders Street Station plan) failed to do anything more than announce a plan.

Welcome

Geoff Howard

As the Member for the Buninyong Electorate, I am your local government representative and you can contact me if you have any queries or concerns about State Government issues that affect you in Buninyong.

 

Over the coming months I intend to continue my practice of meeting with as many people as possible across the communities in the new electorate.

 

As well as holding my regular community consultations, I will be door-knocking and making phone contact with residents.

 

I will also be holding local community meetings and BBQ’s across the many suburbs, towns and regions in the electorate.

 

If I miss you while I am out and about, or you are not able to attend my community meetings in your area and would like to speak with me, please call 5331 7722 or e-mail me on geoff.howard@parliament.vic.gov.au

 

I would also welcome any support you may like to offer towards my efforts to provide strong leadership to represent your community.

Public Sector Funding and Employment

It seems the standard practice of conservative governments — of Liberal-Nationals governments — is that when they come to power they want to make cuts. They do not like to spend on those things that the community sees as important. They do not like to see spending on education, on health and in so many other areas that are important to our community, and they just make cuts. Of course we saw that when the Baillieu government was elected in 2010. The first thing they did when they came to office was to say, 'No, we can't be spending so much on education. We can't be spending so much in a range of other areas' — in ambulance services and so on. In terms of some of the projects that Labor had proposed, they cut those too.

Matters of public importance

I do not know of any formal investigations regarding the member for Brunswick, and that is what this tirade seems to be about. I would ask you to bring the member back to speaking, if he can, on the subject of formal investigations and not just muckraking on a broad range of things that he might want to bring up. He should keep to the MPI which his side of the house has put forward.
