CAST­ING DOUBT

Pinjarra Murray Times - - OPINION -

JUST what im­prove­ment, if any, even­tu­ated from the ex­pen­sive coun­cil elec­tion snail mail bal­lot when only the same low percentage of res­i­dents ac­tu­ally bother to vote?

Must we en­dure those posters hanged up on every street cor­ner down the high­way?

Ac­tu­ally I voted for the Mayor and Dave Schu­macher a week be­fore all the signs were erected out­side Farmer Jack’s.

Hope­fully some of that cre­ative trans­parency at the City of Man­durah will be re­placed with ac­count­able com­mon sense.

Ac­tu­ally, I’m won­der­ing how many trees in Burma were cut down for the elec­toral of­fice to print so many con­fus­ing en­velopes on pre­tend re­cy­cled pa­per.

I re­mem­ber vot­ing in the Gos­nells elec­tion where the re­sults were pub­lished in the news­pa­per on Mon­day morn­ing, pronto. DAVID COOMBS, Halls Head
