Friends of the G21 region,
e-News provides you with a sense of the important issues, activities and proposed projects within the G21 region.
Federal election candidates on noticeWhen you cast your vote in the upcoming federal election you deserve to know which of the region’s priority projects political parties and their candidates support, or don’t support.
That’s why G21 is again producing a tally sheet of the major parties’ commitments against relevant G21 2016 Priority Projects in the run-up to the election.
They are projects the G21 Board has previously short-listed as being most beneficial to the economic and social health of the entire region.
The G21 Board comprises representatives of the five municipal councils in the region and elected representatives from the membership of G21.
The projects came before the G21 Board for consideration through a well-established and robust process.
G21’s eight community-based subject-specific Pillar Groups, which are effectively the “engine room” of G21’s work, identify projects and needs within their specialised fields, before feeding them up to the G21 Board.
G21 strongly guards the integrity of its Priority Project selection process, which has over the years earned the respect of political leaders, both state and federal.
Prudent long-term planning is a foundation of G21’s philosophy and success.
Respect for the G21 process, and for G21 as an organisation, was again evident when the G21 Board visited Canberra recently. Politicians were eager to discuss the region’s priority projects, including the G21 pre-election tally sheet accountability process.
Twelve (12) of G21 region’s 17 current Priority Projects require federal government support. These are the ones listed in the G21 federal election tally sheet below.
The tally sheet will be updated regularly as parties make commitments against specific projects during the upcoming campaign.
The tally sheet will be periodically sent to G21 members, and interested others, in the lead up to the election, and will be available on the G21 website.
You can view the latest G21 Priority Project election tally sheet at any time by clicking here.
We urge you to lobby your local candidates on behalf of the G21 Priority Projects, and to follow the candidates' commitments through the G21 tally sheet.
G21 will shortly commence a social media campaign, running through to the election, in support of the G21 Priority Projects. We invite you to follow us on Twitter and Facebook, showing your support by re-tweeting and sharing. Links to all of G21's social media accounts are on the G21 website.
