Quotes attributed to Inga Peulich MLC, Member for South Eastern Metropolitan Region:
“Crime is completely out of control in Casey and Victoria under Labor.
“You can see why the current Councillors are taking the lead and lobbying government so hard on crime.
“Labor takes Casey for granted. Premier Andrews and local Labor MPs must stand up for the Casey community and wage a war on crime rather than a war on CFA volunteers and cross-factional colleagues.
