Tuggeranong residents have been forgotten by Labor, Member for Brindabella Nicole Lawder said.
The 2019 ACT Budget has put Tuggeranong residents last, starving Canberra’s south of investments in capital works and local services.
“This budget has dealt a double blow to Tuggeranong residents,” Ms Lawder said.
“Labor and the Greens are raking in record revenue from people in Canberra’s south, but Tuggeranong residents are getting less and less in return.
“Tuggeranong schools, local parks, sports fields and equipment continue to be neglected.
“There’s been no increased funding for basic services like lawn mowing, rubbish removal, fixing street lighting and graffiti removal.
“For a long time, Tuggeranong residents have felt that they are forgotten. This budget sends that message loud and clear.”
