SOCIAL HOUSING ELECTION SILENCE
IN relation to the forthcoming West Australian State Election to be held on March 11, already the two 'major' political parties here in WA are making commitments in the many millions of dollars for infrastructure and 'other' projects, some of which would seem to be of benefit only to secure the reelection of sitting members but with little regard to the wider community.
Thus far and to my knowledge, there has been no mention by either party (Labor and Liberal) of their intentions to address the terrible 'homelessness' and chronic shortage of social housing we have in Perth.
I ask both Colin Barnett and Mark McGowan what their proposals and plans are to address homelessness and social housing in the community?
Furthermore, please state clearly what your intentions are – whether to change or do away with the Western Australia 'seniors card'?
As we progress through to the election I would wish that all political parties treat everyone with dignity and respect. The West Australian community does not want to be told lies or made promises that are going to be broken once elected. KEN LITTLE, East Victoria Park.
