WATTLE RANGE COUNCIL PROMOTES PRIORITY ISSUES
AHEAD OF THE 2014 STATE ELECTION
The Wattle Range Council is drawing attention to regional issues in the lead up to the 2014 South Australian Election.
Wattle Range Council’s Mayor, Peter Gandolfi, is calling upon the current Government, the Opposition and minor parties to consider the needs of the district when they are forming election policies and project announcements.
On releasing the document Mr Gandolfi said: “The Wattle Range Council district has great potential, particularly in the areas of primary production, manufacturing and tourism but we lack some fundamental building blocks. Equitable access to government services and economic infrastructure are two areas which could improve the prosperity of our community.”
“There are also opportunities to improve services provided to residents. The disconnect between the provision of services, current and future demand, needs to be addressed at both the Federal and State level.”
The publication, which Council is calling its “Ask of Government Document” describes 21 issues under the following headings:
According to Mr Gandolfi most of the issues in the document are long standing and well known in the community.
“The document will been sent to political party leaders, relevant ministers, shadow ministers, the Member for MacKillop and candidates,” Mr Gandolfi said. “We have respectfully requested a response on how they intend to tackle the 21 issues.”
Council looks forward to working with all political parties in the coming months to gain the best outcomes for the region.
