More ha­rass­ing

Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - Street Watch -

AN­OTHER West ward can­di­date in Bel­mont has come for­ward claim­ing ha­rass­ment dur­ing the lo­cal elec­tion.

New­ton Mar­ques said a mem­ber of the pub­lic first called him at the end of Au­gust.

“Right from the word go of my cam­paign, the per­son tried to dis­suade me from con­test­ing the elec­tion on flimsy grounds and claimed to be an in­ves­ti­ga­tor by phone,” Mr Mar­ques said.

Like in­cum­bent Coun­cil­lor Lau­ren Cay­oun, Mr Mar­ques said his fly­ers have been re­moved from the Kooy­ong Road shops, along with posters and lawn signs taken from other ar­eas.
