‘NSW deserved better’: Jim Wilson tears into Andrew Constance’s career move
Transport Minister and Bega MP Andrew Constance is quitting the NSW parliament to run for the federal seat of Gilmore, prompting criticism from Jim Wilson.
Mr Constance has a history of “playing silly buggers” with federal politics, Jim said, after briefly putting his hand up for Eden-Monaro.
Jim also called out the Transport Minister’s less than impressive track record in his portfolio: “dodgy ferries, excessive tolls, and compulsory land acquisition … that’s ripping off Sydneysiders”.
“He’s wiped his hands of the whole lot.
“For him to suddenly walk away from his electorate in the middle of a pandemic, simply to try to further himself … [is] a bad look and a real letdown.
“The people of Bega and the people of NSW certainly deserved so much better.”
