Monaro: campaign against electricity network privatisation targets National Party MP John Barilaro with major billboard

Jun 6, 2013

Local National Party MP John Barilaro is being urged to publicly reject any plans to sell the electricity poles and wires, with a prominent billboard installed this week highlighting the negative impacts that privatisation would have in his electorate.

The billboard — on the Monaro Highway at Michelago — is being funded by electricity industry unions as part of a $1.5 million dollar community campaign highlighting the reduction in services, loss of jobs and increased power prices if the electricity network monopoly is sold.
