Labor and Green councillors should be held accountable

After reading the front page article (PN edition 520) that Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch states that the 42.1 per cent rate rise is just a Merger Tax from the State Government, Ms Tesch claims that this rate rise has just been dropped on our community because the Central Coast Council is in a $500 million financial disaster.

I have to disagree with Liesl because it was not all the State Government's fault that we have a $500m debt.

In my opinion, it comes down to the councillors who spent the monies that they didn't have. The Labor and Green councillors who controlled the council were the ones that should be held accountable for this financial black hole.

It is easy to blame the State Government on all our woes but we have to have a good hard look at the councillors who voted down over 30 motions that were all associated with the finances of the council over the first three years of the new Central Coast Council.

The Central Coast community needs to make their vote count at the next council election.

We can't afford to allow this type of council to be in power ever again.

We need more independents on our council and I feel that we can't let the Greens have the balance of power again as this is what the Greens and the Labor party did in just three years.

So for Liesl Tesch to say that the Liberal Party's forced merger of the two Councils was the only reason for this disaster, sorry Liesl. I don't agree.
