Hutchins Caught Out trying to defend the indefensible

Local Government Minister Natalie Hutchins has been caught out trying to cover up the Andrews Labor Government’s cuts to local government.

She has tried every trick in the book but the hard facts and budget figures don’t lie.

Natalie, a cut is a cut and the Andrews Government is cutting.

When I went to school $912 million (2014-15 funding) was a bigger number than $873 million (2015-16).

The Commonwealth has frozen funding but Hutchins and Andrews are actually cutting and cutting hard.

Caught out Natalie! Caught out badly!

Roads and bridges cut!

Rates capped in a pincer movement by Daniel Andrews – capping rates while tearing out funds.
