BAIRD REFUSES TO MEET AT DAPTO DOGS

MEDIA STATEMENT


Premier Mike Baird has refused my request that he visit the Dapto Dogs to listen to concerns from the greyhound racing industry in the Illawarra following his decision to shut down the industry from 1 July 2017.

His response was sent to my office by email this afternoon.

I wrote to Mr Baird on 15 July with my request.

The Premier is gutless and a coward.  There is no other way to describe this arrogance.

He’ll make announcements by press release but won’t follow up on a request that he meet with real people – face-to-face – on the ground at the Dapto Dogs to understand the depth of feeling his decision has caused.

What’s Mike Baird afraid of?

I say to the Premier: if you want to make decisions that impact on people’s lives, have the decency and guts to front up.

 

See: Anna Watson MP’s letter to Premier Mike Baird, dated 15 July; and the Premier’s Office email, dated 27 July.
