Freo's View


Posted in city of fremantle, election, local government, Uncategorized by freoview on April 24, 2017

As flagged here on Freo’s View a few weeks ago former President of the Chamber of Commerce Ra Stewart will nominate for the position of Mayor of Fremantle at the October local government election, opposing present Mayor Brad Pettitt.

Stewart told Business News that she wanted to bring responsible financial management and enthusiasm back to council.

The latter shows Stewart should have attended more Freo Council meetings as there is definitely no lack of enthusiasm at the present council, clearly indicated by their drive for economic recovery, strongly encouraging massive development, which Fremantle has not seen for 30 years.

It will no doubt be a very interesting and hard-fought election and I am expecting at least another two people to put their hand up to oust Brad Pettitt.

    Yes that would be Ra’s business as far as I am aware, Andrew.

    Do we know if Ms Stewart has a Twitter account by any chance or is she the Ra Stewart of Bright Blue Media? It would be nice to know if the potential Mayor’s are engaging directly with the community they wish to work for.
