CINDY McLeish (MLA, Eildon) has slammed Daniel Andrews’ first State Budget, which she said delivers no new funding for Mansfield Shire.
“Daniel Andrews’ city centric budget is yet another kick in the guts for rural and regional Victorians,” Ms McLeish said following the release of the budget last Tuesday night.
“Labor has ignored schools, public health and roads throughout the Mansfield Shire.
“This budget puts politics first and country people at the back of the queue,” Ms McLeish said.
Ms McLeish was particularly disappointed no funding has been made available for the needed redevelopment of Mansfield Secondary College.
“Despite the former Liberal Government’s commitment to kick start redevelopment of the school with $2.8 million, Mansfield Secondary walks away from Andrew’s budget with nothing.
