Spin over safety for firefighters

It’s alarming to hear reports today that Daniel Andrews would rather spend taxpayer money on ads spinning for his government than buying vital breathing equipment for firefighters.

If it’s a choice between a glossy newspaper ad and safety equipment for our firefighters, it should be a simple choice.

Daniel Andrews is more focused on fighting a war with the CFA than he is ensuring they’re best equipped for this upcoming fire season.

As we approach this fire season our firefighters need certainty, not a government who wants to tear apart our CFA.

At the next election Victorians will have a clear choice, more of Daniel Andrews’ warring with our volunteers and making our homes and property less safe or a Matthew Guy Government who will stand up and protect those who protect us.
