Costo makes a hous­ing call

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

MEM­BER for Whit­sun­day Ja­son Costi­gan has called on the ALP Min­is­ter for Hous­ing and Public Works Leeanne Enoch to come to the re­gion and ex­am­ine the hous­ing sit­u­a­tion.

This was on the back of a visit from Shadow Min­is­ter for Hous­ing and Public Works Rob Mol­hoek last Thurs­day.

Mr Mol­hoek met with mem­bers of the Whit­sun­day Hous­ing Com­pany Ltd and vis­ited one of the group’s prop­er­ties at Pleas­ant Dr.

Whit­sun­day Hous­ing Com­pany sec­re­tary Cr Jan Clif­ford said the group op­er­ated 130 prop­er­ties.

She said she had been happy with the di­rec­tion of the for­mer gov­ern­ment, which was in the process of stock trans­fers to em­power the re­gional hous­ing groups.

Both Mr Costi­gan and Mr Mol­hoek said things were now in a state of limbo.

AT HOME: Whit­sun­day MP Ja­son Costi­gan and Shadow Min­is­ter for Hous­ing and Public Works Rob Mol­hoek meet­ing with Whit­sun­day Hous­ing Com­pany res­i­dent Dorothy Fo­ordHolmes.
