Today the Andrews Labor Government confirmed they have failed on their commitment to deliver a new police station for Clyde North.
The revelation at the Public Accounts and Estimates Committee (PAEC) highlighted the promise by Labor was more about spin than safety.
Brad Battin, local Liberal State Member of Parliament and Shadow Minister for Police stated “It is appalling the Andrews Labor Government have failed our area when it comes to community safety. You can’t promise the community a new 24 hour police station by 2022 in a media release, and then fail to even buy the block of land.”
To date the contract for land has not been signed with the Minister stating finding a block of land is a challenge in growth corridors.
“This is just more spin from Labor when it comes to excuses for not delivering, thousands of houses, new businesses and even a new massive Bunnings all found land. If the Andrews Labor Government really wanted to deliver for Clyde North, they would have. This adds to a list of promises that were never more than a media release.” Brad Battin said.
“For 20 years Casey residents have had Labor representatives elected to be their voice, but never live in the area, thus never fully understanding local issues. This is just another example of what happens as a result. The only way to see a new police station delivered is to vote Liberal at the next state election and change the government.”
