LETTER: We’re not getting our share

Ratepayers Victoria’s letter ­regarding rate rises in Mildura is sadly another example of how our region is screwed over compared with our regional brothers and sisters. 

Our state member, Ali Cupper, recently posted about the Regional Development Grant funding audit, 

also illustrating Mildura had been neglected while other areas received much larger grants. This funding is available to local govern­ment.

Am I the only one to make a connection? We have access to funding – our money – but we’re not getting it.

Instead, we’re getting more rate rises. And this issue has dragged on and on. 

Is this laziness? “Not my job?”Lack of imagination? “It’s the way we’ve always done it?” Or just incompetence?
