Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page -

Re-elected Na­tion­als Mem­ber for Ovens Val­ley Tim McCurdy has writ­ten to min­is­ters in the new Vic­to­rian La­bor Govern­ment call­ing on them to back key lo­cal projects that fea­tured dur­ing the State Elec­tion cam­paign.

Mr McCurdy said Daniel An­drews and his team now needed to make good on their com­mit­ment to “de­liver for all Vic­to­ri­ans”.

“The com­mit­ments that I made on be­half on The Na­tion­als were re­sound­ingly en­dorsed by lo­cal vot­ers,” Mr McCurdy said.

“I will con­tinue to fight for a bet­ter deal for Ovens Val­ley and hold the An­drews La­bor Govern­ment to ac­count for the fund­ing pri­or­i­ties and projects the peo­ple of Ovens Val­ley voted for.

“I’m now call­ing on the rel­e­vant Min­is­ters to put pol­i­tics aside and sup­port com­mu­nity pri­or­i­ties.”

The projects in­clude new trains for the North East rail line and a sports sta­dium at Wan­garatta High School with bas­ket­ball courts for com­mu­nity use.

“At Yar­ra­wonga the hos­pi­tal up­grade, drainage study and sup­port of the Yar­ra­wonga bridge green route re­main pri­or­i­ties while at Co­bram it’s a com­mu­nity hub lo­cated at the pri­mary school and clu­b­rooms for Co­bram Roar,” Mr McCurdy said.

Mr McCurdy said th­ese projects could not be ig­nored by the govern­ment.

“I look for­ward to work­ing with the La­bor Govern­ment to de­liver on the im­por­tant needs of Ovens Val­ley and I am de­ter­mined to en­sure that our voice is heard by the State Govern­ment.”
