Bentleigh Liberal candidate telling fibs about reservoir

The Liberal candidate for Bentleigh has been caught out telling fibs to local residents.

Last week, he claimed that the East Bentleigh water storage reservoir on Warrigal Road was “decommissioned”. In fact, it is currently being fully utilised and provides drinking water to local residents.

The Liberal candidate also claimed that the State Government intends on selling the site. This is another lie. In fact, South East Water has been in discussions with Glen Eira Council over the last four months about possible community use of excess land on the site.

This is an embarrassing bungle by the Liberal candidate, a resident of Beaumaris, which proves he is just not familiar with our local area.
