Where’s proof of alleged election promise?
Letter sent to the Fraser Coast Chronicle on 27 May 2016:
In the Fraser Coast Chronicle (26/05/16) a minor party candidate for Hinkler claimed the Federal Government’s funding commitment for a feasibility study into the Burrum Bridge project was a “recycled election promise”.
As far as I’m aware, you can’t recycle something that never existed in the first place.
I never promised Commonwealth funding for a feasibility study during the election campaign in 2013.
I challenge this candidate to provide proof to myself, or the Fraser Coast Chronicle, of when and where he alleges I made this promise.
This project has always had my support in principle, but as I have said many, many times, I would like to see the results of a comprehensive feasibility study first.
You can be sure that minor parties will always promise everything, and deliver nothing, apart from chaos and disruption.
