The ACT Opposition Leader and Shadow Education Minister, Zed Seselja and Steve Doszpot, have made their own election promise: a Canberra Liberals Government would hold a $250,000 public school infrastructure audit.
Doszpot accused ACT Labor of neglecting government schools to the extent of leaving Taylor Primary “so poorly maintained that it couldn’t be used.” (The school was closed in March, with the ACT Government pledging $13 million to repair it in May).
“Under ACT Labor, Canberrans have been left with a government that is forever playing catch up with infrastructure delivery and maintenance. We know residents deserve a Government that gets infrastructure right from the start and plans for the future,” Mr Seselja said.
Our Infrastructure Canberra policy would see the appointment of an independent Infrastructure Commissioner, backed by a board, to ensure government projects are on time, on budget, and in the best interest of taxpayers.”
