RSVP Kelmscott Town Hall Meeting
With both Colin Barnett and Brendon Grylls now committed to privatising Western Power, we are staging another Town Hall Meeting to talk about the impact of privatisation on the community.
Privatisation will mean bigger power bills, as well as fewer jobs and apprenticeships. It will mean less money for health and education, because the State will lose the hundreds of millions in dividends and taxes that Western Power generates each year. Privatisation will also mean cuts to preventative maintenance budgets, resulting in longer waiting times to fix faults and increased bushfire danger.
