Budget must deliver for Barwon Image

The NSW Government will deliver it’s COVID-19 delayed Budget for 2020-21 tomorrow. I’m expecting to see a lot of big spending to help alleviate the effects of the pandemic on the economy.

I’ve been asked by a number of journalists what I would like to see funded across the electorate. This is by no means an exhaustive list, there are many more projects that deserve their share of funding.

I’ve made sure that Government has this list, and I’ll be watching tomorrow to see if they’ve taken my advice on board.
