SO what do May­ors do?

It seems ratepay­ers spend hun­dred of thou­sands of dol­lars so that th­ese may­ors can en­joy photo op­por­tu­ni­ties, which sup­pos­edly pro­mote our ci­ties.

The prob­lem comes when be­ing mayor is not enough.

Kwinana Mayor (Carol) Adams, a re­peat of­fender in try­ing to get an­other job, blurs the lines be­tween her day job and the real job she wants.

Mayor Adams has spent lots of her time pro­mot­ing the Outer Har­bour.

When she runs for State par­lia­ment she helps the Lib­eral Demo­crat can­di­date get elected with her pref­er­ences.

Of course Lib­eral Democrats are against pub­lic own­er­ship of as­sets.

So Mayor Adams thinks it’s bet­ter to do a pref­er­ence deal to try and get her­self elected to State Par­lia­ment, (rather) than show in­tegrity and keep faith in what she has been preach­ing for years.

Maybe it’s time Kwinana had a Mayor who wants the job? KEVIN DES­MOND, Parmelia.

AM­A­TEUR pho­tog­ra­pher Mark Nan­gle shared this photo of the Grain Ter­mi­nal at sun­set from Kwinana Beach.The Parmelia res­i­dent has been ex­per­i­ment­ing with Pho­to­shop and com­pos­ite images. “This is ac­tu­ally two pho­tos merged to­gether,” he said. “The moon was out but would not have been in this shot. “I took a sep­a­rate photo of the moon and added it into this shot.” Send pho­tos to week­end­courier@com­mu­ni­tynews. com.au
