ANDREW Gee has shown a genuine concern for CSU and the impact of the university funding freeze announced by the Federal Government (“Calare MP Andrew Gee slams lack of consultation on university funding freeze”, Western Advocate, December 20).
A lack of consultation is inexcusable and will have a big impact on CSU funding.
Andrew Gee has missed out on a promotion in Malcolm Turnbull’s ministry reshuffle. However, this is to the advantage of the Calare electorate, giving our local member more time to work with his constituents.
Andrew Gee shows concern for his constituents and this was also evident when he acknowledged the Calare electorate “yes” vote in the same-sex marriage survey. Against his own conscience, he voted in the parliament to support same-sex marriage.
It was disappointing, though, when he sided with state Member for Bathurst Paul Toole to support the Brewongle community in their quest to have the proposed solar farm moved to another very unsuitable area at Brewongle.
The alternative suggested area is totally unsuitable due to the aspect and lack of infrastructure.
