O'Dowd assures shire on funding

LNP candidate for Flynn Ken O’Dowd said yesterday the needs of the Banana Shire and residents would have equal priority with other districts in the electorate under an elected Coalition government.

“If elected, I would be happy to make representations to relevant shadow ministers in a new Coalition government to get some real action for the shire on the projects it would like to see advanced,” Mr O’Dowd said.

Mr O’Dowd said he had accompanied the shadow minister for regional development, infrastructure and water, Senator Barnaby Joyce, to meet Banana Shire Mayor John Hooper and councillors.

He said he had been informed of the shire’s list of priorities and would work to ensure the projects were put for consideration in the Government’s budget process.

Mr O’Dowd said he would support council in seeking funding.
