NATALIE Kotsios may not have lived in the region for long but that is no excuse for not doing her homework.
She should have done a five minute basic search into her own newspaper’s files before claiming that the $12 million in the recent budget allocated to Indi “is the likes of which this electorate has rarely seen” (The Border Mail, May 16).
The reason the Coalition is giving $10million for the Wodonga CBD is because the railway line has been removed from central Wodonga — thanks to $45million previously obtained by Sophie Mirabella. And what about the more than $350million to finally fix the Hume bypass after more than 30 years of delay?
Or more than $300million allocated by the Coalition to upgrade of the local Thales explosives and propellant factory? Or the $23million package for local tobacco growers?
Or the tens of millions of dollars in grants to local manufacturers like Bruck textiles to keep jobs in Indi?
The facts speak for themselves.
Coalition governments have not and do not ignore Indi.
