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?
