Charity and fundraising auctions for the Canberra community

Community Minister Won’t Commune

By che - 17 May 2005 4

Jacqui Burke has vented her outrage at John Hargreaves not meeting UnitingCare Kippax because they don’t receive funding from the ACT Govt. Seems a vicious cycle to me, the Minister will not meet them because they don’t recieve funding, they can’t get funding because the Minister won’t meet them to talk about funding, hmmmm.

What’s Your opinion?

All UnitingCare need to do is invite a QIC representative…that’ll bring the whole assembly out to Kippax.

“the Minister will not meet them because they don’t recieve funding”

Since when did you need funding to see a Minister? I thought that MLAs were voted in by the community for the community and thus, as a part of the community it therefore shouldn’t make any difference whether or not you got some dodgy grant or funding.

John Hargreaves seems to be under a bit of pressure lately, both from outside the party, and it would seem, from inside as well, being that he doesn’t appear to be closely aligned with the big three, Stanhope, Quinlan and Corbell.

Does one have to meet the Minister to get funding? Is that the process?

Seems to me Jacqui Burke does a lot of “venting”!
