Eden-Monaro voters want community ‘rebuild and recovery’: Kotvojs

Liberal candidate for Eden-Monaro Dr Fiona Kotvojs says the major issues across the electorate involve the recovery and rebuilding of communities from the fires, floods, droughts and COVID-19.

In a wide-ranging interview with Sky news host Chris Kenny, Dr Kotvojs denied claims which surfaced on Thursday that NSW Nationals leader John Barilaro was undermining the Liberals’ bid to win the by-election by asking voters to preference Labor ahead of herself.

“Both John Barilaro and Trevor Hicks have made it very clear the preferences for the Nationals are going to the Liberals,” Dr Kotvojs said.

“Both of them have made that statement very clearly this morning”.

Dr Kotvojs also said Snowy 2.0 was a “fantastic project”.

“What it does on a federal level, and a national level, is it firms up the renewables”.

“It’s a really great project in terms of energy, and locally for Eden-Monero, it’s great in terms of the jobs it produces”.

Dr Kotvojs said she is “really happy” to represent the Liberal Party in the upcoming by-election on Saturday.
