Voting Dat


The West Australian reports today that many people in Fremantle are not aware that there is a federal by-election this coming Saturday and that leaves me gobsmacked.

Don’t people read newspapers, social media, watch TV or listen to the radio anymore at all? What then are they constantly doing on their smartphones and computers?

There is little use in whingeing about our governments, be that federal, state or local when one does not participate in the democratic process and informs oneself about what is going on in this country.

So go vote THIS SATURDAY JULY 28, and do it at the Fremantle Primary School to support them. See poster above.

My preferred candidate is Labor’s Josh Wilson, who was an excellent Councillor and Deputy Mayor of the City of Fremantle.

    That is a pretty defamatory statement to say that every Fremantle candidate is unfit to hold office. What do you base that legal assessment on?

    Not aware or just disgruntled that they have to trudge to the ballot boxes? The most undesirable and entirely avoidable waste of people’s time and money in Australian political history. Made even worse by the fact that every single Fremantle candidate is unfit to hold office. I can completely understand the voter apathy in this regard.

    White Gum Valley will also be open for voting and has a reputation for some of the best fare including cakes in the Electorate!
