2018 Budget Update
In this state budget, we got even less from Premier Mark McGowan and the WA Government than we did last year.
Mandurah deserves better.
No money to expand Peel Health Campus emergency department, or add new health services.
There is $4.4m over four years for an expanded Peel Health Campus car park which I welcome but there is no point parking if you can't get into a packed emergency department or get a hospital bed.
No new money to tackle crime in our community.
Crime and drug abuse is sky-rocketing in Mandurah, but in WA Labor's budget, there is no extra funding for our police force.
Mandurah deserves better than $0.
No new money to expand our local schools, on top of the hundreds of thousands of dollars that were cut from Halls Head College school budget in 2017-18.
With a growing population, there is also no money in this state budget to expand the size of our existing schools. There is also no money for the proposed Dawesville Senior High School.
Our schools deserve better than these cuts,
No money for new roads, or even to look at building a new Estuary Bridge.
Despite constant questions to the Minister for Transport, and raising this in and our of Parliament, the State Government has ignored our concerns about the need for new estuary bridge.
This is a real concern for both congestion and for safety. Mandurah deserves better.
A reduction in the Mandurah Train Station carpark.
During the 2017 election, Labor committed $20million to fund the carpark at Mandurah Train Station but in the budget have cut $4million from project.
Labor has ignored Mandurah and cut the carpark project by 20%.
Yet fees continue to increase...
Tell Mark McGowan We Deserve Better.
I need your help to show the State Government that Mandurah deserves more from this state budget.
