HANNAH FITZHARDINGE WINS BEACONSFIELD
Hannah Fitzhardinge today won the Beaconsfield by-election of the City of Fremantle and will the the third female on Fremantle Council.
Only 35.7 per cent of eligible people elected to vote so only a total of 1267 votes were posted.
Hannah Fitzhardinge received 534 votes, Fedele Camarda 363 votes, Andrew Luobikis 279 votes and Peter Cruikshank 91 votes.
The clear message here is that the Fremantle Residents and Ratepayers Association and Fremantle Society, who supported Luobikis, don’t have the support of the community they claim to have, as even Fedele Camarda, who did it all on his own, received more votes than Luobikis.
It will be nice to have another voice of reason and balance on Freo Council and nice to have a female for Beacy next to that macho bloke Dave Hume. ; >)
Congratulations to Hannah Fitzhardinge and the three other candidates. Your passion for Fremantle is laudable!
