Candidates tangled in poles and wires issue

Thursday, 19th March, 2015

Independent candidate for Barwon, Rohan Boehm, and the Nationals’ Kevin Humphries crossed swords this week over the proposed sell-off of “poles and wires” to fund infrastructure projects.

Mr Boehm said that the privatisation would cause 1400 job losses from Essential Energy.

He said that the Essential Energy advisory group had told the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) that if the sale goes ahead country towns had the most to lose, with the job losses compounding the lack of maintenance and infrastructure that would already come with privatisation.
