Fo­rum on hot top­ics

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STATE ELECTION ‘17 -

HOT top­ics such as high­rise build­ings and crime will be dis­cussed at a South Perth elec­tion fo­rum to­mor­row night.

The City of South Perth Res­i­dents’ As­so­ci­a­tion will host the meet­ing with other com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions at the South Perth Com­mu­nity Hall at 7pm. The pub­lic is in­vited to lis­ten to the seven can­di­dates who will con­test the seat.

As­so­ci­a­tion chair­woman Ce­cilia Brooke said the pub­lic needed to know about the can­di­dates and their poli­cies.

“We all have per­ti­nent ques­tions about the area and not the big pic­ture of the elec­tion. Each can­di­date will be given an al­lot­ted pe­riod of time,” she said.

Or­gan­i­sa­tions rep­re­sented will in­clude Save Como Ac­tion Group, JMH Ac­tion Group and Man­ning Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion.

As­so­ci­a­tion deputy chair­man Robin Mul­der said he ex­pected De­vel­op­ment As­sess­ment Pan­els, “mega high-rise build­ings”, crime, the South Perth sta­tion precinct and traf­fic to be dis­cussed.

The can­di­dates for the seat of South Perth are:

Ja­son St Martin (Mi­cro Busi­ness Party)

Max Fran­cis (In­de­pen­dent) Mark Bro­gan (Greens) John McGrath (Lib­eral)

Fiona Reid (In­de­pen­dent)
