Tweed people face the clearest possible choice at the state election on March 28.
A vote for the National Party is a vote for Geoff Provest’s pro-fracking, pro-CSG agenda to expand coal seam gas mining across the north coast.
A vote for the Nationals is a vote for privatising your electricity assets, causing higher electricity bills and giving away vital revenue needed for funding teachers, nurses and police.
Mr Provest voted in the parliament to support cuts to health, cuts to education and cuts to TAFE.
Mr Provest has also supported the renewal of coal seam gas licences on the north coast.
Only a Labor government would keep your electricity assets in public hands and properly invest in infrastructure and services in the Tweed.
A vote for Labor is a vote for a $211 million upgrade of Tweed Hospital, $40 million for a high school at Pottsville and a permanent ban on coal seam gas mining on the North Coast.
A vote for Geoff Provest and the Nationals is a vote for selling electricity assets with no proceeds to be spent in the Tweed, expanding coal seam gas mining and more cuts to education and health services.
Ron Goodman, Tweed Labor candidate
