Mr R. SMITH (Warrandyte) (13:50:20) — In my final members statement for this Parliament I would like the house to note that this nasty, rorting government has delivered very little to the electorate of Warrandyte over the past four years. This government claims to govern for all, but the reality is far different. This government and the permanently angry Premier Andrews pick and choose those Victorians they will support, and if you are not one of Labor’s mates then you are on your own.
In sharp contrast an elected Matthew Guy-led government will not ignore my residents. Already we have committed funding to support many groups in my electorate, including the Park Orchards Sharks, with $500 000 going towards the redevelopment of their clubrooms; the Wonga Park Wizards Junior Football Club, which will receive $80 000 for upgrades to the lighting on their home ground; $40 000 for the Doncaster East Football Club to upgrade lighting; and Doncare, a fantastic not-for-profit community service provider that will receive $1.7 million to help them look after vulnerable people in my community. Local schools that have seen no support from this spiteful Labor government will benefit from funding, including Wonga Park Primary School, Donvale Primary School and Warrandyte High School. There will be more funding announcements in the coming weeks.
For a government that claim they are delivering for all Victorians, the Warrandyte electorate has only received $2.5 million of funding over four years under this Labor government. Compare this to the list I have just read out, as I said, with more to be announced. The choice could not be clearer for my community on 24 November: to continue with a crooked, grubby, rorting government which rots from the head down, or to support a Liberal-Nationals coalition government that is actually committed to supporting my community.
