With a Federal election just weeks away, the City of Whittlesea is sending a message to local candidates – Don’t leave the City of Whittlesea behind.
Chair Administrator Lydia Wilson said Council relied on both Federal and State government funding to deliver important community projects.
“Councils have a limited source of revenue to deliver a large range of projects which impact on the daily life of people in our municipalities. We need investment from other levels of government to be able to bring projects to life,” she said.
“That’s why we’re calling on all local candidates to show their commitment to their local community by supporting important local projects.”
Ms Wilson and fellow Administrators Chris Eddy and Peita Duncan said the City of Whittlesea was campaigning for support for projects that delivered more local jobs, improved health and wellbeing and better roads, transport and connectivity.
“We are hoping between now and the election that we might hear some good news on promises to commit to these important projects for our community,” Ms Wilson said.
