Rob Oakeshott has not even been elected yet but Scott Morrison has already promised 80 per cent of the capital expenditure needed for the Coffs Harbour bypass. David Gillespie was MP for the area for many years and was unable to achieve this.
Rob Oakeshott has not even been elected yet but Scott Morrison has already promised $4.5 million dollars for a tidal pool in Port Macquarie - something Luke Hartsuyker was unable to achieve for 17 years. (Whether a tidal pool is actually the best option is, of course, an entirely different matter, requiring normal "good management" events like feasibility studies, ocean environmental impact studies, community preference for best new pool option.)
Nevertheless, it appears that Rob Oakeshott can deliver the goods even before he gets elected. Imagine what he will deliver if he is elected the member for Cowper.
