Post-Budget Briefing with Treasurer Pallas

It was standing room only today at Cptn Jack’s in Somerville as the Committee for Mornington Peninsula hosted its Victorian Budget Briefing with Treasurer Tim Pallas.

The Committee hosted a lunch followed by a Members Q & A with our CEO Josh Sinclair, and we were pleased to see around 60 people in attendance.

The Committee discussed with Treasurer Pallas the need to keep funding allocated for infrastructure projects within our region; how we can better advocate within a Metropolitan Melbourne designation; and the importance of government investing in road, public transport and infrastructure upgrades - particularly on the Western Port side of the Peninsula.

During the forum, Members asked questions relating to payroll tax concessions and comparisons to other areas of Victoria; inclusive workforces; taxes on business; infrastructure funding for projects on the Mornington Peninsula; and higher education training opportunities for young workers in our region.

Thank you to Paul Mercurio MP and his office for helping facilitate this event and their ongoing support of the Committee.

A special thank you also to Mal Hart and Yaringa Boat Harbour for your support for this event.
