GEORGE CHALLENGES LISMORE LABOR CANDIDATE
Member for Lismore, Thomas George has today called on Labor candidate, Janelle Saffin to come clean on whether she supports Labor Leader, Michael Daley following revelations he failed to disclose political donations or personal relationships on at least 32 property developments while working as a Randwick City Councillor.
The Daily Telegraph revealed last week that Mr Daley did not declare non-pecuniary conflicts of interest over ALP donations totalling $1.2 million while assessing $71 million worth of developments.
Mr George said he stands by decisions made by his Liberals and Nationals leadership team and now Ms Saffin needs to make clear if she supports hers.
“There can be no room for corruption or dodgy dealings in our planning system,” Mr George said.
“Our community needs to have faith its political representatives are always putting the needs of the community ahead of their own, which is why Ms Saffin needs to address this issue.
“I believe local representatives should not only be accountable for delivering for the electorate, but also for trying to restore faith in politicians and our political system.
“The question that needs to be answered is, does Ms Saffin support Michael Daley in light of these allegations?” Mr George said.
