Questions Raised Over Tamworth Trip

Wagga Mayor Greg Conkey has jumped to the defence of General Manager Alan Eldridge, after questions were raised about his visit to Tamworth this week.

In a statement, Mayor Conkey says he was aware of the trip, and encouraged Mr. Eldridge to visit Tamworth this week on behalf of the city.

He says Wagga is about to spend many millions of dollars on new facilities, and as Tamworth has a number of excellent facilities, Mr. Eldridge’s trip is part of a 'fact finding mission'.
