Blacktown. City is a ' total disgrace'

Councillors at Blacktown City Council have accused the State Government of favouring Parramatta with big-money office blocks including a new justice precinct, Sydney Water and a police HQ, according to The Daily Telegraph. At Wednesday's council meeting, councillors discussed inviting Premier Kristina Keneally to the "derelict CBD" to show her its potential for future government departments. "You can wear all the T-shirts you like saying, 'I love Blacktown' but when you come to the city it's a total disgrace," councillor Jess Diaz told the meeting. "If you want major investment you have to face facts and have the infrastructure to support it," said Pierre Esber, on Parramatta City Council.
