La­bor hopes for cy­cle of change

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

MICHAEL Voros is up for the chal­lenge of the seem­ingly im­pos­si­ble task of top­pling the Lib­er­als from the seat of South Perth.

The Como res­i­dent has been an­nounced as the La­bor can­di­date for the seat ahead of the State elec­tion in March.

La­bor has never held the seat, which came into ex­is­tence in 1950, and in­cum­bent John McGrath se­cured 67 per cent of the pri­mary votes in the 2013 State elec­tion.

Mr Voros said he was ex­cited to run for the seat for the first time.

“I think there is a mood for change; there is a view that the State Govern­ment is tired and com­pla­cent,” he said.

“I’m look­ing to pro­vide an al­ter­na­tive and in the com­ing months I’ll be work­ing with the lo­cal peo­ple.”

Mr Voros said health, ed­u­ca­tion and pub­lic trans­port were all is­sues for South Perth.

“I’m pas­sion­ate about fam­i­lies and I want to see the South Perth elec­torate con­tinue to be a great place for fam­i­lies and that’s some­thing that drives me,” he said.

“I’m also a pas­sion­ate cy­clist; I ride my bi­cy­cle or catch pub­lic trans­port to my job as a lawyer in the Perth CBD.”

South Perth La­bor can­di­date Michael Voros with WA La­bor Leader Mark McGowan.
