$9.5M FOR REGIONAL LEADERS
Alpine Valleys Community Leadership program, one of 10 around the state to benefit from funding boost under a Liberal Nationals Government.
More details ... billtilley.com.au/?p=3484True leaders don't create followers, they create more leaders

Today at a meeting of participants from all VRCLP - Victorian Regional Community Leadership Programs, I was pleased to announce four more years of these valuable programs under an elected Liberal Nationals Government. We'll also boost it by $1.5m to $9.5m so VRCLP can continue its work giving local people the skills they need to drive positive change in their community.

When our regions are strong, all Victorians benefit.

GREAT OUTCOME FOR EDUCATION

Comment on Facebook

Why are the school in such a dilapidated condition, why has there been no maintenance or renovations so that they require $15 million just to bring them up to standard. Why has it taken an election and chase for votes to have our children's school up graded. It's not government money, government has no money it's tax payer money and it is long over due for spending on these schools. Don't pat yourselves on the back hang your heads in shame for valuing our children's education by the number of votes $15 million will buy.

$15 MILLION EDUCATION WINDFALL

Today, along with Shadow Minister for Education Tim Smith MP - Member for Kew we announced a Liberal National Government will invest $5M in Wodonga Middle Years College Huon campus, $9.4M at Let's Build Up Beechworth Secondary College and $150,000 to replace the snake and spider infested toilets at Osbornes Flat Primary School.

Along with Middle Indigo Primary that's $15 million for education in the electorate at the next budget if we are elected. In the past 4 budgets Labor funded just $3.7 million, about a quarter of what we will deliver next May.

IT'S A QUESTION OF TRUST

How can anyone seriously trust the information they give to this Labor Government? Last week Daniel Andrews published the private details of many Victorians in his vindictive pursuit of Matthew Guy. In Parliament I spoke of my fear that emails & mobiles provided to Pick My Project and Comparing Energy Bills are just data harvesting of information that may also be misused by this government.

Bill you might be able to tell me, how these big companies can offer people 44% off there Electricity bill and still MAKE money, after all there is only 1 power cable to my house so how can so many companies sell something that comes from just one source!! Its a pity that the "owners of the power lines" just sold the power/electricity straight to house owners and CUT OUT THE MIDDLE MAN.... he is the one making the money!!! and they piss me off!!

EVEN BETTER POLICING

Pleased to be a part of the celebrations at the opening of the Corryong Police Station today, handing over Australian and Victorian flags to officer in charge Liam McMahon. This is critical infrastructure in the Upper Murray that meets the demands of 21st century policing and provides an asset both to the officers and the community. #buildingabetterbenambra

Sorry I could not be there busy within appointment in Melbourne. Looks great. Thanks to Bill Tilley for all the work in getting the funding for this project many years back.

Just a shame Bill Tilley Member for Benambra that old Officers in Charge and members were not invited. Stationed there between 1990 and 1996 as OIC and was completely ignored as were my members.

RE-INVENTING THE WHEEL & PICKING YOUR POCKET

In the past week in Parliament I was able to highlight the farce around Labor's 12-month investigation into what wheels are needed for new trains in the North East. It's a simple process and yet it is a classic case of re-inventing the wheel and pretending to be doing something.

As for Pick My Project, well this is Labor's way ofl getting personal contact details and your interests under the guise of funding your project. Expect a phone call & emails if you vote.

And using tax payers dollars to blatantly buy votes. With a visit by the premiers office to each town in the state at again tax payers cost shore gets them into every country selling their wares like a snake oil tonic maybe his office can get him a gipsy wagon and he can travel that state selling his bad governance.

Do you also notice that NONE of the labor's idiots ever come to the country seeking votes, they would be tarred & feathered if they came here!!!!

Go get em Bill!

Still waiting on your reply to my emails Bill! Sounds like Labor might beat you to it?

ARE WE GETTING BANG FOR OUR BUCK

There are serious questions about the planned trial of shooting deer from a helicopter ... these are my comments issued to local media.

"This is a major breakthrough for the Labor Government in finally realising deer are a major issue in the North East.

"This is the same mob that wants to shoot 100 brumbies at Falls Creek as the solution to environmental damage on the high plains but are still trialling control methods for about a million deer.

"Any measure that can stop the damage deer are doing to parks, farm fences, eating pasture or just being a major hazard on the road is a good first step.

"But at conservatively $500 an hour to shoot from a helicopter you have to wonder how much bang you are getting for your buck.

"The Liberal Nationals have a plan to turn deer into pet food, it will be a boost to the economy, will cull numbers and won’t leave rotting carcasses to feed wild dogs."

WIN News Albury
Hunters will take to the skies next month, as Parks Victoria ramps up its efforts to reign-in deer populations.

The aerial shooting program will be trialled in the alpine region, with hopes it will continue next year.

What a joke. With all the hunting clubs out there, these muppets should hand the bush back to people who know how to manage it. Let the locals and sporting clubs in there. Treat it like the yanks do, where you pay to shoot game. Its a win win.

Shooting deer from the air sounds like an exercise in government spin "We are doing something". Better to promote the eating quality of venison and create a market for this delicious and nutritious meat, encourage abattoirs and butchers to handle it and properly reward hunters for clean killed animals delivered fresh to abattoirs. A million wild deer is an industry ready to create jobs! Oh! and permit responsible deer shooters to hunt in public land.

Waste of $ on doing this, put it to better use by FIXING the RAILWAY line!!! Spend some of that money they all governments seem to print willy-nilly, and do SOMETHING for the Country people and killing Deer is NOT on that list!!!

Maybe for a short time put a bounty on them like Fox's. At the same time deer hunting is bringing some money to some local areas with hunters travelling to the area.

If there a good shot, there should be plenty of bang for the buck!

Sound like something Dopy Dan would do.
