Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens Leader and Transport spokesperson
The Royal Automobile Club of Tasmania (RACT) is to be warmly commended for delivering a strategic vision to ensure Hobart is Australia’s most liveable city over the next three decades.
Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens’ Leader and Infrastructure spokesperson
Northern Suburbs Light Rail appears to be off the agenda under the Liberals, with it failing to rate a mention in the Tasmanian Government’s priority infrastructure report to the Federal Government.
Rosalie Woodruff MP | Greens’ Energy spokesperson
This morning on ABC Radio, Labor’s Michelle O’Byrne refused to take the sale of TasNetworks ‘off the table’, in a short-sighted attempt to fund possible election commitments.
Electricity is an essential service. The Tasmanian Government has an obligation to provide the infrastructure needed to deliver that electricity at the lowest possible cost.
Andrea Dawkins MP | Greens' Water spokesperson
Today’s Local Government Association of Tasmania meeting on the government takeover of TasWater was a forgone conclusion. The Liberal Government’s mind was already made up.
Treasurer and Local Government Minister, Peter Gutwein’s authoritarian attitude towards councils in his political quest is unbelievable. He ignored TasWater’s pleas for funding and Greens’ questioning on the shocking state of Tasmania’s water and sewerage infrastructure for years, before making his snap decision to take over TasWater.
Andrea Dawkins MP | Greens' Northern Tasmania spokesperson
The Federal Budget included significant infrastructure funding, with billions of dollars committed for works around the country - but not Tasmania. A glaring omission was funding to fix Launceston’s ailing stormwater and sewerage infrastructure.
Andrea Dawkins MP | Greens' Primary Industries, Northern Tasmania and Tourism spokesperson
The Tasmanian Greens today launched a policy initiative that will give communities in regional Tasmania the tools, support and funding they need to deliver economic resilience and prosperity.
The Reinvesting in Regions – Grassroots Leadership in Tasmanian Communities initiative acknowledges that Tasmanians living in rural and regional communities are best equipped to shape their own future investment and infrastructure needs.
Rosalie Woodruff MP | Greens Local Government spokesperson
The Liberals' relentless war on councils risks local service delivery and increases in rates for Tasmanians.
Local Government Minister, Peter Gutwein's amalgamation agenda is written into all of his actions since taking office.
The Liberals' key planning adviser openly campaigned for years on council amalgamation as Director of the Property Council.
Andrea Dawkins MP | Greens Member for Bass
The Treasurer and Member for Bass, Peter Gutwein, again refused to take responsibility for Launceston's ailing water and sewerage infrastructure.
After denying all responsibility in Question Time, Treasurer Gutwein left the House in a hurry. Leaving a powerless backbencher to try and justify his decision to ignore his constituents.
Treasurer Gutwein hid behind a backbencher when we raised the issue of Launceston's water and sewerage infrastructure as a Matter of Public Importance in Parliament.
