Nationals Senator Bridget McKenzie has slammed Bendigo East MP Jacinta Allan for politicising the state public service and issuing misleading news releases.
For clarification, Senator McKenzie did not attend the opening of the Department of Premier and Cabinet office yesterday, nor as the Premier confirmed were any local MPs invited.
“The only one misleading Bendigo is Ms Allan, and she’s the only one trying to politicise the opening of state government offices. I have written to Ms Allan to seek an apology,” said Senator McKenzie.
“All Bendigo MPs should be celebrating the focus of the state government rather than seeking to score cheap political points based on clearly incorrect information.”
