Launch a ferry network
DESPITE being a fan of Premier Colin Barnett, 22-year-old Will Melville believes he could be soaking up his last few days as WA’S leader.
Mr Melville, of Claremont, said he was not confident Mr Barnett would be re-elected for a third term.
“It’s pretty hard (to be re elected) after eight years,” he said.
“West Australians like change, even though I personally wouldn’t.
“People always get sick of who’s in power.”
The journalism student said the main reason he would be backing the Liberals was because of the projects delivered by the Barnett government.
“He pushed through with the new stadium, which will be fantastic,” he said.
“We will now be able to see world class sporting events in Perth.
“Elizabeth Quay is also great and has a lot of potential.”
Mr Melville said combating Perth’s growing transport issue was something he would like to see prioritised.
“The river should be made use of,” he said.
“A ferry network that stopped at Elizabeth Quay and at Burswood, as well as other places, would not cost too much in comparison (to other infrastructure).”
However, Mr Melville said he thought Mr Barnett was “clutching at straws” with the One Nation preference deal.
“I think it may backfire a little bit,” he said.
“I think Colin Barnett is limping towards the end, whereas Mark Mcgowan is running.”
