DON’T BELIEVE THE ELECTION ADS
COUNCIL elections are nearly here.
Mandurah MLA David Templeman and others say we should be careful who we vote for.
Some sitting members are putting adverts in the paper - reelect me, vote for me, look at what I have achieved.
They would like you to believe the things they list were their own personal achievements.
Apart from the fact that each achievement was a joint achievement, some were not even that.
One advert would like you to believe that person was responsible for 2000 jobs at M andurah Forum. Sorry, did I miss something? I do not think the council built the extensions to the Forum.
Two thousand jobs... why then do we still have the highest unemployment rate in WA?
One thing that does puzzle me is none of them accepts responsibility for the footbridge disaster at the train station.
There have been other bad decisions that have been buried as well.
The annual budget states we borrowed $4.4 million in 2016-17.
Someone said that is the highest in Mandurah’s history.
In the last 18 months there have been 700 complaints about councils to the ACCC. Come on ratepayers. Listen to the David Templemans of this world and vote wisely. DENNIS MCDONALD. Meadow Springs. headed, what a pity. Stop serving the media. We are constantly being led by the nose by small minorities with no regard for the country but only for some self-serving personal agenda.
When an immoral minority needs to push so hard for laws to support them, anyone who takes some time to think about it has to say “something is wrong here”.
Yes, of course it’s wrong to attack someone for any reason and there are plenty of laws to support the victim.
As far as this Yes-No survey is concerned, why are our elected politicians spending so much time or any time at all discussing this subject?
They were elected to run the country without this disgraceful morbid fear of the press. You can never legislate morality. No, not ever. Legislation will never make people do what is clearly not right.
It is becoming apparent that the Aussie voter is losing the ability to think for themselves.
It has become weak and reactionary and unable to think beyond the daily news media.
Wake up Australia. DON HATCH, Jurien Bay.
