NAR­ROW MAR­GIN

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

IN his let­ter pub­lished in the Gazette’s Oc­to­ber 27 edi­tion, Cr Robert Rossi who ap­peared to be boast­ing about his nar­row elec­tion vic­tory in the re­cent West Ward City of Bel­mont coun­cil elec­tion.

Clearly, the re­sult is no ring­ing en­dorse­ment for Cr Rossi who has been the in­cum­bent coun­cil­lor for 12 years and the deputy mayor.

The fact that he has failed to hear the mes­sage for change at the city coun­cil is as­ton­ish­ing con­sid­er­ing the mar­gin in votes was 1108 to 1035.

The re­sult shows that if a fur­ther 37 peo­ple had changed their vote then the out­come would have been dif­fer­ent and Cr Rossi not elected. GE­ORGE SEKULLA, Bel­mont.
