COUNCILS RESPOND TO ELECTION DELAY: ‘IT’S BLACKMAILING BY THE STATE GOVERNMENT’

Minister Paul Toole’s own electorate of Bathurst is embroiled in a council merger fight, with Oberon Shire poised to launch a Supreme Court appeal against merging with Bathurst Regional Council.  He cannot be wanting to continue as the member for Bathurst after March 2019, given the beating with baseball bats handed out to the LNP in Orange just a few weeks ago.

Lisa Visentin provides a good analysis and update on the whole issue of forced council amalgamations in her piece in yesterday’s Sydney Morning Herald.
