Labor’s Tim Kurylowicz

Educator at the Museum of the Riverina, Tim Kurylowicz, threw his hat in the ring on Friday after claimingMr McCormack had failed to deliver on the levee bank upgrade and theRiverina Intermodal Freight and Logistics (RIFL) hub.

“I think Mr McCormack is a decent man but he’s not a fighter and he’s shown a willingness to capitulate on everything the Liberal party has asked of him,” Mr Kurylowicz said.

“Copper NBN, record cuts to health and education, CSG mining- where does it end?”

Mr Kurylowicz cited the government’s retreat on fully funding the Gonski plan as an example of the National Party shirking its constitutents’ interests to appease the Liberal Party.

“At an event the week before the last election Mr McCormack told the crowd he gave a Gonski,then he was assistance finance minister when his party made the cuts,” he said.

“Labor’s plan will deliver an average $3.2 million increase to funding for everyschool in the Riverina electorate over the next 10 years.”

The fresh-facedcandidate who was dispatched at the last federal election also promised toadvocate for Wagga infrastructure upgrades.

“Upgrading the levee bank isan absolute no-brainer -we’re talking about protecting a city with gross regional product over$3 billion,” he said.

“As for the freight hub, federalLabor delivered a $15 millioncontribution to that way back in 2013 andwe’re still fighting.”

Mr McCormack shot back a rebuttal to each criticismlevelled against him, taking particular offence to the accusation he hadn’t done enough to secure the RIFL hub.

“I worked hand in glove with Simon Crean to secure the initial $14.5 million and have moved heaven and earth to keep the money on the table until Wagga council ticksthe boxes after successive commercial partners pulled out,” Mr McCormack said.

“I’ve brought a regional voice to the full ministry as well as holding down the important portfolio positions of finance, infrastructure, regional development and defence.”
