Craig Foss has launched an attack on opponents of the dodgy socialist dam in the HB Today.
Foss is indulging in some sledging of Labour MPs without providing any facts or figures to back up his claims.
Great to see our mayors united and finally endorsing the Ruataniwha scheme.
Welcome aboard, although seriously, why did it take so long?
Where has your united support been for the past three years? I have pretty much been a lone political voice facing the brunt of negativity from the loud minority as I continue to drive support for this project which will deliver job and economic growth for our Hawke’s Bay families.
Perhaps now, we can get behind a 10-year pipeline of water infrastructure investment across Hawke’s Bay. Growers in and around Twyford and across the Bay deserve that certainty.
As the final Ruataniwha decision gets closer, and hopefully succeeds through the courts, I can already sense that some opponents are looking for a way to do a massive U-turn and, finally, come out in support. The following politicians have all publicly opposed the Ruataniwha project: Labour MP Stuart Nash has run advertisements against, Labour MP Meka Whaitiri put up a bill in Parliament to stop it.
Councillors Barker, Belford, Bevin and Graham have fought it at every turn. Yet the project continues to work its way towards success.
