SCHOOLS INVESTMENT HEADS BUDGET BOUNTY FOR RIVERSTONE ELECTORATE
Written on the 21 June 2017 by Kevin Conolly
Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly is delighted to announce that the NSW state budget delivered today allows people all over the state to benefit from the responsible financial management and discipline of the Liberal-National Government over the last 6 years.
"Not only is the Government continuing its record investments in transport and hospital infrastructure but this year's budget sees record education investment added to that list," said Mr Conolly.
Some of the highlights for Riverstone electorate and the region are:
2 new primary schools to be built at Schofields (funding 2017-18) and Marsden Park (2018-19).
"On top of that, the numbers of doctors, nurses, police and teachers continue to grow as front line services are given priority. Palliative Care services have received a huge funding boost and there are extra resources committed to child protection, combatting domestic violence and addressing homelessness," said Mr Conolly.
Meanwhile, the government's focus on increasing housing supply is paying off as dwelling approvals and completions continue to rise and the first home buyers package will help more people to break into the housing market.
"And of course the North West Metro is on track to open in 2019," Mr Conolly said.
"Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Treasurer Dominic Perrottet have delivered an outstanding range of investments in the infrastructure and services needed by the people of NSW," said Mr Conolly.
