Member for Flinders Peter Treloar isn’t holding out much hope for Eyre Peninsula in today’s state budget announcement.
Mr Treloar said he hoped to see more road funding allocated to the region, however the prospects for local projects in the budget were looking grim.
“My long-term goal, even from opposition, is to attempt to secure more much-needed road funding for the electorate,” he said.
“Unfortunately I’m not expecting any significant projects in the seat of Flinders or much of the state for that matter.
“I do hope that the government can continue to at least adequately fund our health services and education on Eyre Peninsula.
“These are, after all, basic services that the state government is responsible for.”
He said it was likely we would see another budget deficit announced.
“Despite promising to deliver seven budget surpluses, the Weatherill Labor government has instead delivered six budget deficits, including the highest deficit in the state’s history.
“It’s likely that today’s budget will forecast yet another large deficit, and on previous budget figures, debt is set to increase by $4.1 million per day for eight years.
“The level of economic incompetence continues to astound me.”
