Labor leanings?

By Shepparton News

I was interested to read the article ‘Station site chosen’ in Wednesday’s News.

Karibok Park is an excellent location for our new fire station.

The new station will be vital in supporting the excellent work of our CFA volunteers who risk so much to help keep us safe.

I was amazed to read State Member for Shepparton Suzanna Sheed say, ‘‘we would really like to see this project started by the end of the year. Why would we be delaying a big investment and building opportunity that will provide jobs and wealth into our community?’’

Who is the ‘‘we’’ Ms Sheed refers to?

By ‘‘we’’ does Ms Sheed mean herself and the Daniel Andrews Labor government?

By using the opening ‘‘we’’, has Ms Sheed inadvertently come out as the Labor member for Shepparton?

Is the pretence of being independent finally uncovered?

Given that Ms Sheed has voted with the Andrews Labor Government on so many important issues, including to undermine our fantastic CFA volunteers, it is hardly surprising.
