AS a voter in the Belmont electorate, I have received a letterbox drop authorised by a Patrick Gorman.
This letter portrays the Labor candidate (Cassie Rowe) as a great community worker through the Belmont Community Group.
Other than the odd expensive advertising and letter drops featuring large photos of herself, I am unaware of any positive work she, or the group, has done for the people of Belmont, including those employed in the racing industry, where it was the local member, Glenys Godfrey, who voted in Parliament to protect their welfare.
I have raised the issue at a Belmont Council meeting as to the bona fides and financing of this so-called community group, which had no elections or public meetings, no available membership lists or fees, yet finances to purchase advertising, which some members, who are also councillors, no doubt were well aware of but refused to answer.
Surely the electors of Belmont are entitled to know who funded this group and its de facto election campaign for their chairperson. WILSON TUCKEY, Ascot.
