ACTEWAGL Sponsorships for 2010–11

By welkin31 - 20 January 2012 24

I just wondered what Rioters thought of this list of ACTEWAGL sponsorships from their 2010/11 Annual Report.

I was a bit surprised at some on the list and although I hunted – I can find no dollar amounts or even the total spend.

My own view is that ACTEW Corp Ltd or ACTEWAGL should not spend a cent on these “sponsorships” – it should be a function of the ACT Govt through a Govt Department – open and transparent.

Yesterday around 5pm to 5.30 I think – on Win TV I saw a puzzling new advert featuring a young woman with a baby in sugary sweet scenes portraying their loving relationship. When these idiot feelgood ads come on top management and I try to guess who is paying the bill – we both agreed Banks or Medimuddle could be candidates. Then the last scene came up and I was gobsmacked to see the ACTEWAGL logo. So WE – and all Rioters – were helping to pay for this deep message. We recall nothing in the ad about electricity or water.
Has anybody else seen this TV advert ? Can somebody make a copy – get a photo of the last scene – type out a transcript ?

Facsinating !

Chairman JMac and the former Chief are great mates I believe, so it’s not surprising (in Canberra at least) to see the ACT Government’s community events push is replicated by ACTewAGL. After all helping Canberran’s feel good about Canberra maintains the status quo and keeps the ACT Labour Government in power – who cares about a few extra dollars on their power bill to keep one side in power !

Nowhere else in the world would you find a public utility with such sponsorship list. And only a few years ago it was even more diverse – see below. Go on, tell me ACTEWAGL weren’t helping to feed the chooks back then !

Nice or what? Great, if they supported local grass roots community without hurting the genuine ! What does Actewagl, let alone ACT government do for genuine low income home owners? We don’t get a cent from centrelink for housing costs, nor do we cost ACT gov as we are not in Public housing… Without local councils the difficulties of trying to keep a house with low income without burdening society is confronting, do many recognise how unusually hard life can be in ACT? As far as Actewagl , since main shareholders are Chief minister Gallagher and treasurer Barr, they appear to ignore the principles Labor was built on. Maybe Im, but, asimple soul, but any chance of explanation of why they not take better care of ACT homeowner residents that are unlucky ? Its very scary and more than disempowering to have both power and water cut off, so be warned, don’t get sick without private health cover as you dont want to be be stuck waiting fairness from Actewagl nor public health a la ACT,as u have very few options, its a nasty trap ..Compared to otherstates, there real recognition that life isnt always sweet for everyone, real help is available to genuine humans, regardless… But, not here in ACT, as Iv experienced first hand, one has to be one of the especially targetted groups to have any hardship or difficulty recognised, thus..thank you for nothing, Canberra incompetence
