Freo's View

Facebook likes to rub it in and reminded me today that this leaflet was dropped in letterboxes in the Fremantle Beaconsfield Ward last October, when I attempted to become the next Beacy Councillor, but sitting member Dave Hume won comfortably.

As it turned out I became Beacy’s Biggest Loser and received the fewest votes of all three candidates, so just a little support from me for the three Beacy candidates who did not win the council election last Friday, when Hannah Fitzhardinge took the trophy.

Good on you Andrew Luobikis, Fedele Camarda and Peter Cruikshank for putting your hand up. You did yourself, your family and your community proud for showing your willingness to step up.

There is no shame whatsoever in not winning. Well done to you all and a big thank you from me!!

    I did it really all on my own without any help, so that might have made a small difference.

    You should run again. Did not running as a party candidate lessen your success?
