Passionate and active Fremantle Dockers supporter and man about town Chris Lewis has thrown his hat in the ring to become the next President of the Fremantle Society and already the knives are out. Lewis’ opponents claim he is a front for developers and ex WA Premier Peter Dowding, but Chris Lewis says that is just ridiculous and that he is simply a friend of Freo who wants the best for our city.
Lewis will be opposing former Fremantle Councillor John Dowson who has also nominated for the FS top job, so the AGM in early December will be an interesting and feisty one.
Lewis was an owner and the CEO of WA’s largest PR agency Ward Holt for twenty years and told me that the communication deadlocks in Freo are community wide and far broader than just the Fremantle Society versus the City of Fremantle. He said that if elected as FS President it would definitely be the key to keep the communication lines with the key stakeholders open at all times.
If you are a financial member of the Fremantle Society you should make sure to attend the AGM on Monday December 7 at 6.30 pm at the Fremantle Tennis Club in Parry Street and have your say.
