DESPERATELY NEED RAIN, BUT
Looks like a bucket load of rain is on its way tomorrow with up to 100mm forecast in extreme cases. Take care and heed the warnings, don't walk, ride or drive through flood water and keep clear of creeks and storm drains.

Fingers crossed we get lots of rain. All our dams are empty.
Nothing like mandatory sentencing people to long prison terms in the the rain.
What who does he think he is now a professional now on the weather. I don't think so. IDOT
Yipee, but hope it is fine for Carols in the Park on Saturday evening. Hope you can be there Bill, about 10000 of your constituents will be there, a good chance for you to say 'thank you'. Even more there than at the races.
I have a mate with a boat if you want it.
Spewin ! That Means I’ve Got To Tarp !
That's what I like to hear 💯👀
Drive to the conditions... not that many drivers know any difference from the shocking way they drive anyway.
Thanks for the advice Bill
We are supposed to get it too. Let’s hope

Great to see three local groups as benefactors of the VicHealth Active Club Grants released this week. Rutherglen Bowling Club Inc., Wodonga Croquet Club and Wodonga Hockey Club will all get grants as part of programs to increase participation. Love the idea of local mums at Rutherglen being introduced to the game in a social setting. ... See MoreSee Less

THANKS & LET’S GET TO WORK
Almost 10 days after the last vote was cast we have a result ... it looks like I’ll be returned by about 2000 votes. It’s been a tough campaign and to all my fellow candidates I say well done — it is not easy; people are harsh critics and unforgiving but the spirit among the candidates and their volunteers was incredible.
To my team — the volunteers who have given so much of their time and energy, a really special thank you. We are painted as some big party machine but the reality is we are grassroots, boots and all for what we believe in ... ... See MoreSee Less
Thanks for all your help during the campaign
Well done Bill. Make their votes count. Even though you may think you are removed from the federal issues... I know as genuine as you are you will never be complacent about where the Libs Nationally are. Keep on keeping on with the local community because they are the backbone of the wider litmus of Australia. But keep ur eye keenly focused on the Albury/Wodonga Region. They will give back. Congrats.
Had to wait 10 days for my wish to come true,good things come to those who wait .
Well done Bill, and to all the other candidates it was a great race.
Well done Bill good luck for the rest of your term. Keep looking after the little people. Jenny Dale

We've all been there ... travelling to Melbourne for work or play and then hitting the traffic.
GRIDLOCK. FRUSTRATION. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.
That's why the in government we'll invest $20.5 million to overhaul outdated ‘dumb’ traffic lights and replace them with ‘Smart Traffic Lights’. They'll get traffic flowing by bringing our traffic systems into the 21st century, allowing them to monitor and react to congestion in real time. It's all part of our plan to get Victoria moving: bit.ly/get-victoria-moving
#visionexperiencecommitment #benambravotes ... See MoreSee Less
A decent train would be better
Best of luck today knackers...👍
Nothing worse than getting made to stop at a light late at night simply because it's on a timer. Well actually i guess there is, getting booked for moving through said light because there's no one around apart from an unseen copper...
Half the problem is the roads are not built well enough, the road loop sensors (which pick up when cars are there such as turning lanes, side roads & the main carriageway) get destroyed due to the asphalt moving after the road is cut up to install them at the recommended depth, often the asphalt is to thin, meaning a couple of big sections are potentially floating loosely, the road loops that are installed before the asphalt is laid are better.
This would drag our road network into the twentieth century.
Geez i cant wait for this election to be over!!!!!
Fuck the traffic in Melbourne.... just FIX the bloody train line!!!! Dan Andrews only thinks that Victoria consists of Ballarat, Bendigo & Melbourne, the rest of the state GETS NOTHING!!!!! arsehole!!!!

Last year I was invited to open the Chiltern Pro Rodeo and whilst researching the history of the rodeo I discovered this terrific story about the Chiltern “Tiger”.
It was 1855 and the town was in uproar -- livestock were disappearing and the community became so concerned that the local school was closed. The Chiltern railway station gatekeeper spotted the beast one night headed towards Barnawartha. In the end it turned out he had been on the suds and the livestock theft was the result of some cunning livestock duffers working the district.
Sadly, livestock theft is not a crime of the past and has become an urgent pressing problems for our local farmers. That’s why a Liberal Nationals Government will beef up a rural crime squad with officers and resources.

HERE IF YOU NEED
For those involved in netball around the electorate you will be very familiar with netball's famous catch cry, “HERE IF YOU NEED”.
I'm committed to be here for not just netball but all grassroots sports. I'm proud of my past achievements for our sporting clubs and if elected a Lib Nats Govt ahs already agreed to put money into Rutherglen's Barkly Park and Cudgewa Netball courts in the next budget. We'll also use $195M of the money that Labor earmarked for "Etihad's makeover" to fix, update & refurbish grassroots sporting facilities across the state so get your plans together and get ready to apply.

Good luck Bill, from a Queenslanders perspective Benambra is lucky to have you.
At least you stick to your guns Bill unlike some people who appear to change their agenda when the throw their hat in the ring for election. You can't be a greenie one minute and not the next. Keep it going Bill.
Give 'em heaps, Bill! Smothers Brothers!
Good luck Bill you have my full support
Keep up the good work Billy
Bill, Beechworth and Districts Hockey Club need a new home ground in Beechworth! A synthetic, purpose built ground minus the concrete cricket pitch in the middle of it.
Etihad stadium ? Might need to check again
More mountain bike trails would be nice. :) 🚴♂️🤙
I agree Bill we need more facilities at grass roots level than docklands stadium owned by a multi national company paying its directors mutli million dollar salaries and bonuses. I'll be voting for Bill.
Looking healthy there young fella.
Thanks Bill!! Cudgewa FNC is so excited to see the outcome on Saturday!!
Good luck Bill we are voting for you keep up the good work. Jenny & John Dale
Good luck Bill. Vote one!

LET'S SAVE SOME DOLLARS
A Liberal Nationals Government recognises that costs are out of control. That's why we will cut up to $530 dollars off power bills, secondary students text books will be free, we'll cut water bills, hospital parking costs, discounts on rego for first year P-platers and so much more.
#visionexperiencecommitment #benambravotes ... See MoreSee Less
Good stuff..vote no 1 bill tilley mp..
Bill that's all great but its pork barreling. Long term projects? Electricity? Water? Railway? Etc I'm sick of state or federal governments not thinking past the next election. A professor on 3aw today stated that we have neglected infrastructure for nearly 40 years in Victoria. Labor is the worst but the liberal party isn't a much better option at the moment. PS I'll never ever vote Greens.
How will you cut power bills??
Wow, Matthew Guy has announced he's going to honour Labors commitments and actually add to them. Makes it a huge spend Bill, quite a lot bigger than the ALP.
Good on you Bill. God help Victoria if they re-elect the corrupt alp/greens love nest.
How much will mandatory sentences add to the budget, just curious?
Go Bill you are a champ
Good Work Bill and please can we have the very basics expected of healthcare - a doctor - in Chiltern?! To support the ancillary services about to be launched in a Neighbourhood house, without its core - a doctor?
ALP figures on 3AW are much more than the Libs, they're $23,000. However that doesn't make your promises go away, nor do you indicate what services are going to be cut to find these promises, otherwise, the entire amount of $13,000 is coming out of taxpayers pockets. It's the same old cycle, Labor sent this state bankrupt in the late 80's thanks to John Cain and it will happen again. Bill, you say your policies are fully costed. One not so insignificant item will be a dramatic cut in revenue from stamp duty, $3billion might be close. Allowing for this, where are you going to get the money from to fund your promises. Labor waste isn't an answer. You're specific with your promises so how about being specific and tell us where the money's coming from. I'm not bothering to ask the ALP because I don't believe they would have a clue, everything is hidden from us by ALP.
I'm patiently waiting for either party to offer a "free set of steak knives". Bill, your constituents are going to have to find money to pay for this, your policies so far are costing each taxpayer $13,000 according to 3AW Neil Mitchell. You may have $13,000 but a lot of us don't.

While I’m busy trying to win your vote not too far away in our rivers and waterways Murray Cod and Trout Cod are busy spawning in their own Spring campaign.
Although the Murray Cod season will open again soon in December, Trout Cod are protected all year around. So can you tell the difference? What about the new hybrid variety?

LIB NATS WILL CUT POWER BILLS
We've already announced savings of up to $530 a year for low income earners and we'll also save families $355, small businesses about $1000 and larger businesses closer to $2000 under a plan. Added to that our plan to open up onshore gas exploration and we’ll rein in power prices that have risen by more than $1000 in the past year.

WE'LL BACK LOCAL BUSINESS
Our cards are on the table -- we'll cut Labor's payroll tax in half, a Lib Nats Government will change state contracting rules to give regional businesses a better chance to win regional projects, we'll let local decide on the projects that are important to them and fund them.

FRUIT FLY TRAPS
Fruit fly control programs will get an urgent $1 million lifeline under a Liberal Nationals Government. Here in Benambra we live with the threat every summer and yet Labor, through stealth or design, have let the program to supply fruit fly traps lapse. Daniel Andrews interest really stops at the end of the tram tracks.

This year I met with Ron Fenton and his dog Yogi as part of his Code 9 Convoy. Ron told me of the terror’s he faced after his policing days were finished and how Yogi, an assistance therapy dog, had helped him, saved his life really.
That’s why I’m proud of a Liberal Nationals team who have promised to put $500,000 into taking dogs from the pound and training them to help officers from police, emergency services and defence to deal with the traumas they have seen and experienced.

WE'LL BACK OUR FIREFIGHTERS
A Lib Nats Govt will introduce a Presumptive Legislation Bill in the first parliamentary sitting week of 2019, if elected this November. It will ensure all career and volunteer firefighters have fair and timely access to cancer compensation. Victoria is he only state in Australia that doesn’t offer cancer presumptive rights compensation to volunteer firefighters. Only a Liberal Nationals Government will introduce presumptive rights for all firefighters, including volunteers. #visionexperiencecommitment ... See MoreSee Less
Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t the liberal party already have a chance to pass a presumptive leg way back in the day (2013/14)??? I also seem to remember one of your mates (Kim wells) say that the liberal party don’t believe that there is a link of cancer and firefighters. even after all the studies to prove so🤔
Nathan Bell how dare you bring up the past. That was another time when the LNPs policy was to veto presumptive cancer legislation at all costs and when there wasn’t a need to appease firefighters concerns about whether they would be protected if they contracted cancer through job related practices. Remember it is election time and LNP are happy to bargain your right for compensation if you give em your vote, it’s politics nothing personal 🖖
I still don't understand what all the fuss is about
If you DO NOT protect the Firefighters then who in the hell are going to protect US??? this is a 'give me' thing Bill, get it right for God's sake or we will finish up like California's wildfires!!!!
THERE'S NO "I" IN TEAM
With the election campaign well underway I would like to take a moment to thank the people behind me.
I'm lucky to have the support of a local volunteer organisation that has spent four years working tirelessly in preparation for this campaign. Some of my opponents would have you believe that somehow they are part of a big party machine. They're not.
They are people, my local branch members, my supporters and my friends and family. They are mums and dads, workers, students and retirees who turn out to auction nights and fundraising bonfires.
I’m humbled by their ongoing support and the generosity of people who have confidence in me and want to see me returned as their local member of the Victorian parliament. I simply cannot thank them enough.

BACKING ALL OUR SCHOOLS
A @Matthew Guy-led government will invest $100 million every year into the Catholic and Independent school infrastruture. Whether it's a state school, Catholic or independent a Liberal Nationals Government will be there for the next generation of Victorians.
More at ... billtilley.com.au/?p=3612 ... See MoreSee Less
Bill Tilley MP, I have to disagree with this. Private schools should be privately funded. That $100m should be applied to our state funded schools.
How many millions are going to our public schools Bill? Their need is acute! They are under-funded and under-valued. Infrastructure is outdated and often in disrepair. The maintenance budgets for small public schools are abysmal. That leaves parents and the school community members scrambling to fundraise enough just to repair with no hope to replace. Grants funding is highly competitive and hard to secure! It's hard to view this private school funding commitment favourably when your child's school has a toilet block that is unsanitary, a 20+ year old playground that needs replacing, a front fence sagging, a kitchen (of sorts 🙄) with water you can't even drink! You see this then you see the local religious school's mezzanine floor senior study area, their fully functioning cafe, full size sports fields, state of the art wood working centre, indoor stadium etc, etc. Our public school system needs MORE funding and it needs it NOW!
Good luck guys you have my vote
New methods and ideas in schooling and teaching almost exclusively comes from the public system. Then the private sector chooses if it wants to run with it and adopt it into their curriculum. Why would you then attempt to further fund secondary style, private education systems instead of the primary public system? I look at the catholic system of open learning as a cost saving measure and the public system dumped the idea as it is essentially about cramming 150 kids together and with less staffing required. Get students to work in a collective structure. The savings speak for themselves. But it also removes the voice of individual, future entrepreneurs as they are all in a totalitarian style of education. Just my thoughts Bill. Best regards, Erik
