Archer passes buck on consultation

Tasmanian Labor
  • Archer seeks to blame others
  • Community concern growing
  • Archer has learned nothing from the Westbury debacle
  • Elise Archer has attempted to dodge responsibility for her failure to consult with the community and stakeholders over relocation of the Burnie Court.

    Labor Member for Braddon Anita Dow said in Question Time today, Elise Archer was seeking to blame others for her lack of engagement on the issue.

    “The redevelopment of the Burnie Court is a significant project for the community but Elise Archer has a record of failing to consult on major projects, and it looks like she’s doing the same thing now.

    “The Burnie Mayor found out about the project reading the newspaper, and the minister’s excuse today was to blame the former General Manager for not passing on information.
