Well not quite what Brad was telling in his letter to the Herald last week was it ?
Faction fiction His Piece on no party politics in council seems to fly in the face of the greens ad above on the basics of starting in local government. Their statement “With strong Councillors on Local Government throughout the Western Australia, we will be able make sure we all have a brighter greener future!” I take that as green Councillors?
So I suppose as long as the rest of the community agrees with their ideology that’s great but sadly the %’s from state and federal government elections cast the truer reality of where peoples politics lie that’s not even mentioning all the smaller parties and independents.
Then we have Brads comment that he does not support individual candidates as I quote ” I will not be endorsing any individual candidates as the mayor needs to work with whoever is elected.”
Well that’s not what the history of the last election tells us, as he clearly supported candidate in that one, did he not?
Local issues are not what state and federal politics are based on, this is clearly evident in Fremantle as we see basic community amenities so poorly catered for, (public toilets for instance) yet plenty of time, energy and cash for their green political issues.
Its important not to just listen to what they say but watch for how they vote in council, as that shows their true ideology.
Have a read of the two links to the articles, the stories tell the true picture and the contradiction between them. Again read the info and decide for yourself.
