Candidates Declare Intentions on Bastion

The Campaign has sent a question to all 17 candidates in the coming Council elections for East Gippsland. The question asked of candidates was: Do you support an ocean access development for Mallacoota’s Bastion Point that has majority support, is supported by the Department of Transport, has a lower impact and will cost considerably less to construct, operate and maintain than Council’s proposal known as Option 3b?”

Please see here for candidates’ answers. An image of an advertisement in the Bairnsdale Advertiser of 19 October 2012 is shown.

We hope you can use this feedback to guide your postal vote – Please note your ballot paper must be received by 6 pm on Friday 26 October 2012.
