Clague backs State five point plan

LABOR'S Clarence candidate Colin Clague has been congratulated  for signing their Better State 5 Point Plan in Maclean this morning.

Local public sector workers had invited all Clarence candidates to sign the plan, which calls for investment in services to rise in line with population growth and the protection of workers rights.

Assistant General Secretary of the Public Service Association Shane O’Brien, who was in Maclean to support the workers, said it was terrific that Mr Clague could come and sign his commitment to the plan.

“It’s great that Colin Clague made the effort to come out today and show his support for local workers,” Mr O’Brien said.

“People of the Clarence understand that public services need to be supported by government so they can continue to be relied upon. Yet, as we know, there are powerful forces pushing politicians to hollow out funding and cut back wages and jobs.

“I urge Steve Cansdell to reconsider his position on our 5 Point Plan. Which one of our principles does he consider to be a problem?”
