Midland Reporter - - Opinion - COLIN COULTHARD, Goose­berry Hill

I WAS pleased to read in the ar­ti­cle “Vo­cal about vot­ing”, (Re­porter Au­gust 15), that the City of Kala­munda is a part­ner in the Get Lo­cal, Get Vo­cal cam­paign de­signed to en­cour­age res­i­dents and ratepay­ers to get in­volved in their coun­cil elec­tions.

This rep­re­sents an ideal op­por­tu­nity to get rid of Shire Pres­i­dent (oops, Mayor) An­drew Wad­dell, who went ahead with the scheme to have Kala­munda’s clas­si­fi­ca­tion changed from “Shire” to “City” de­spite op­po­si­tion demon­strated in the coun­cil’s own 2015 sur­vey, pub­lic meet­ings and in let­ters to the press.

I heartily rec­om­mend that all res­i­dents and ratepay­ers Get Lo­cal, Get Vo­cal and re­move Mr Wad­dell and his sup­port­ers at the next coun­cil elec­tions.
