Hi everyone

Recently you would have received a letter from Cr Peter Matic, the Councillor for Paddington Ward and Chairman of Field Services about funding for Fairfield Rd. This letter included a number of false and misleading claims.

False Claims
  1. Council allocated $1.4m to resurface Fairfield Rd between Ortive St and Venner Rd, Yeronga. Wrong. In the 2016-17 Budget, Council allocated $1.415m to resurface Fairfield Rd, Yeerongpilly.
  2. A motion was moved to take a small portion of funding from resurfacing Fairfield Rd between Venner Rd and Ortive St, Yeronga. Wrong. The motion related to Fairfield Rd, Yeerongpilly, an industrial, not residential, area.
  3. The funds would be sent to "other parts of the city". Wrong. The request was to reallocate a small portion of the road resurfacing project in Yeerongpilly to three school safety projects within Tennyson Ward.
Finally, you should know I moved the motion to improve safety around local schools. Over the past five years the Lord Mayor has funded 471 local road safety projects around the City but only one in Tennyson Ward. That's right, one. That's why I am fighting for local projects and for better use of existing funds.

It is very common for projects to come in under budget when the detailed scope and costing works have been done. For example, Council budgeted $79m for the Inner City Bypass upgrade, but the contract is worth only $31.5m. Allowing for some administrative costs, that's about $45m in road funding left over for use on other projects. I'm trying to get my hands on at least some of this funding too.

Cr Matic's Voting Record at Council

In recent years, Cr Matic has repeatedly voted against important local projects and initiatives I have proposed for Tennyson Ward. Here are some examples.
  1. Pedestrian safety upgrades around active travel schools in Tennyson Ward.
  2. A major drainage upgrade in Yeronga and Fairfield, first identified by Council as necessary in 2001.
  3. Backflow valves for Yeronga and Fairfield promised after the January 2011 floods.
  4. Protection against demolition for all pre-1946 and pre-1911 homes.
  5. Prioritising funding for traffic lights, including a green walk signal, at the intersection of Cansdale St and Hyde Rd Yeronga, near the retirement village. 
His letter was blatantly political and his voting record in Council demonstrates that he does not support initiatives of importance to Tennyson Ward residents.

In addition, the personally addressed letter sent to residents in Yeronga and Yeerongpilly cost ratepayers, that's you, approximately $4,000. Instead of getting on and delivering for Tennyson Ward residents Cr Matic is playing games. I hope you see his letter for what it is.
