Perth at cross­roads

The Sunday Times - - YOUR SAY WA -

This month brings with it a mo­men­tous cross­roads for our beloved State cap­i­tal — a lo­cal elec­tion.

Will the City of Perth’s ratepay­ers de­cide that the cap­i­tal should forge ahead, con­tin­u­ing with the work to ex­pand the global ad­mi­ra­tion for our face-lifted im­age that’s been achieved over the past decade? The al­ter­na­tive is morale-sap­ping — to be­come a vic­tim of greedy, witch-hun­ters, of ego-bloated ma­nip­u­la­tors with tun­nel vi­sion and parochial at­ti­tudes.

In cast­ing our vote at the cross­roads, the power of re­flec­tion al­lied with pos­i­tive think­ing is needed, so that our de­ci­sions will bring pride along the road ahead. RON WIL­LIS Mt Law­ley
