Tweed Nationals MP Geoff Provest’s ongoing failure on cross-border issues has been brought into focus once again by the imminent start of daylight saving in NSW on Sunday, 5 October.
Mr Provest has yet again failed to deliver for residents and business alike on cross-border issues.
Mr Provest promised a special economic zone for the Tweed. But after seven years in parliament, locals are yet to see any move towards Mr Provest’s promised special economic zone.
This adds to Mr Provest’s already long list of broken promises, including failing to build a high school at Pottsville and failing to get work started on the new Tweed police station.
In 2009 Mr Provest publicly announced that a Tweed economic zone was a priority to stimulate the Tweed economy.
Mr Provest has failed to follow through. He and the Nationals have a poor track record when it comes to improving conditions for Tweed businesses.
We need a government that will actually invest in this region instead of taking it for granted like Mr Provest and the Nationals.
Ron Goodman, Tweed Labor candidate
