Daily Telegraph wrong on City grants

Also in the Telegraph this week – ludicrous hints at corruption because Council allocated grants to community groups with ties to the Clover Moore Independent Team.

I've made it a priority that people on my team are effective community advocates, so it’s no surprise that past members are involved in successful organisations doing important work for our city and nation.

Supporting our community with financial and in-kind support is a core function of council and these grants – to marriage equality campaigners, sustainable building initiatives and public art – are well deserved.
