Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Perera

Pil­bara Greens can­di­date Brent McKenna has been charged with dam­ag­ing pub­lic prop­erty over party lo­gos found spray-painted on City of Kar­ratha pave­ments last month.

Spray-painted tags of the Greens logo ap­peared on foot­paths out­side Wick­ham Newsagency, Roe­bourne post of­fice and Kar­ratha City Shop­ping Cen­tre on Fe­bru­ary 16 morn­ing.

Roe­bourne po­lice last week charged Mr McKenna with three counts of dam­ag­ing prop­erty by graf­fiti. He is next due to ap­pear in Kar­ratha Mag­is­trate’s Court on April 4.

Greens MLC for Min­ing and Pas­toral Robin Chap­ple re­peated the Greens’ pre­vi­ous com­ments that the party did not con­done the al­leged ac­tions of Mr McKenna.

He said Mr McKenna re­mained the Greens can­di­date for last Satur­day’s elec­tion as the nom­i­na­tion date had closed.
