ACT Government advertising spend

By catey 13 July 2007 22

Hi – is anyone else getting sick of seeing the tv ads the ACT Government is using our taxpayer funds for about the recent budget and how this “proves” its commitment to the territory?

How about proving its commitment to the ACT community by directing the money spent on the campaign toward community projects instead of wasting money on propaganda about how great the government is!

I would accept spending on an advertisement that is genuinely providing information to the community about issues of concern or uncertainty, but there is nothing about this ad that informs the community, it is solely self-promoting. What’s the story and aren’t there any laws/regulations to prevent the government wasting money like this? Does anyone know?


What’s Your opinion?

One thing about the ACT government’s budget – they are perfectly happy predicting the winfall of funds that will(?) be available in 2008 & 2009 in 2007’s budget. Yet they couldn’t predict that 2007 would be a bumper year in 2006 (and that they didn’t need to cut so many services)! The bus timetable is truly woeful now, never mind the schools. Selective predictions will be the death knell for this goverment. Bring on the Greens!

Yep, a total waste of taxpayer’s money – he must have been watching John Howard’s efforts.

Careful Stanhope, you don’t want to got out the door like Howard is about to…
