Councillor Sam speaks out to save refuge

Councillors Sam Wainwright and Josh Wilson have spoken out in support of the Warrawee Women's refuge in the face of a Barnett government decision to exclude the refuge from a 15% funding increase.

The funding increase was denied to all services run by local government bodies - ostensibly because local governments have the power to raise rates.

In reality, the move is designed to create pressure for privatisation of local government services.
