Minister Hargreaves has announced the winners of the ACT (public housing) Tennant of the year and garden of the year awards. The media release can be read here .
Congratulations to these two people who seem more than worthy for the accolades they have been given – I’m sure they will be given a nice plaque for the wall or trophy to sit on the mantelpiece for their efforts.
There was great anticipation and expectation that the inaugural ACT Tennant Freeloader of the Year may have been awarded to fellow MLA Deb Foskey. Unfortunately it appears that Ms. Foskey missed out this year and can continue to sleep soundly in the knowledge that she continues to block (by insisting that she will remain living in a ACT Housing property instead of renting on the open market) those genuinely needier and on a fraction of her income, access to Government accommodation.
