GOOD party leader Patricia de Lille is on an election campaign in the Garden Route today. She visited Slangrivier and Albertinia, and will also campaign in Mossel Bay and George.
De Lille says the Garden Route is one of the most beautiful regions in the Western Cape, but the gap between rich and poor is clearly evident.
“If GOOD is given the chance to govern this district we’ll make sure that we’ll deliver the same quality of services in the rich areas as delivering the same quality in poorer areas. And over and above, it’s the high electricity and water prices, because the municipalities are making profit out of poor people and that is what GOOD will stop, by taking out the profit,” says De Lille.
In a statement, the party says it has a plan to ‘fix’ George and its surrounding areas without giving details of what this entails. It says De Lille will bring GOOD news of the party’s offering in municipalities it is trusted to govern for the next five years.
