VICTORIOUS WILSON MEETS MEDIA AT BATHERS BEACH

Posted in city of fremantle, democracy, elections, federal government, Uncategorized by freoview on July 29, 2018

 

 

Victorious Fremantle federal by-election winner Josh Wilson held a media doorstop at Bathers Beach at 1.30pm today, so I took some photos of the happy new Labor MP for Canberra.

Wilson increased his winning margin, so that is a good sign for him and the Labor party for the next federal election early next year.

JOSH WILSON RE-WINS FREMANTLE

Posted in city of fremantle, democracy, election, federal government, Uncategorized by freoview on July 28, 2018

It is hardly a surprise that Labor party candidate Josh Wilson re-won the federal seat of Fremantle today, with the Liberal party not putting up a candidate.

It has overall been a very good day for the Labor party during this by-election day with also wins in Tasmania and Queensland.

The disappointing reality of it all is that this will be very short lived with a Federal election due early next year, so we will have to endure another long election campaign, with lots of hubris, hot air and promises from the uninspiring federal leaders of the major parties.

I am glad Josh Wilson will be going back to Canberra as he deserves it. He is a genuine person committed to and passionate about Fremantle and he has represented us well.

Congratulations Josh and all the door knocking and other volunteers who were up in the cold and rain early to meet with people on their way to work. Well done all!

LOCATION COUNTS EVEN AT ELECTIONS

Come on Josh 4 Freo team! Surely there are better spots to promote my favourite Fremantle candidate than at a rubbish bin. We all know what some cynical people believe politics are.

I voted for Josh right here at the Beacy Primary school where there is a mean sausage sizzle and cake stall going on, and very few people voting, so no long queues.

IT’S VOTING DAY FREO!

Wilsons

 

It is voting day for the by-election for the federal seat of Fremantle, so make sure to appreciate the privilege and go to a polling booth!

Voting is compulsory but that does not really matter, as it is our responsibility and also a privilege many people in the world who don’t live in a democracy envy us for.

My vote goes to Labor’s Josh Wilson, here photographed with his delightful wife Georgia and groovy children Oscar, Priya and Abbey.

Josh has given some excellent speeches in Federal Parliament and was a great Councillor and Deputy Mayor of Fremantle. He is a dedicated and genuine person with a lot of passion for Fremantle, so vote for Josh Wilson today.

One makes enemies for life when one ignores the North Fremantle community, so I’d better give a plug for the catering at the North Freo Primary School at Saturday’s FEDERAL BI-ELECTION DAY, after I did the same for the Freo Primary School.

It’s not a competition, so people in those areas please supports the P&C of these schools, and others such as the Beacy Primary, close to where I live!

Vote for Labor’s Josh Wilson. He is a good bloke!

WAKE UP FREO AND VOTE THIS SATURDAY!

Posted in city of fremantle, democracy, election, federal government, Uncategorized by freoview on July 25, 2018

 

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.

VOTING STARTS FOR FREMANTLE BY-ELECTION

Posted in city of fremantle, democracy, election, federal government, Uncategorized by freoview on July 10, 2018

 

 

The early voting Fremantle office in the Adelaide Plaza in Adelaide Street opened this morning, the same day I received the official guide for the Fremantle by-election from the Australian Electoral Commission in my letterbox.

Only Labor candidate Josh Wilson and a small group of volunteers were at the polling booth this morning, but there are seven candidates for the federal seat of Fremantle.

Election day is Saturday July 28, so less than three weeks from now.

My vote will go to Josh Wilson, a man I have a lot of respect for.

The official election campaign launch of Fremantle Labor candidate Josh Wilson is on this evening, although Josh and his team have already been pounding the streets and been knocking on doors for weeks.

Deputy Labor leader Tanya Plibersek, one of my favourite politicians, will be at the launch at Victoria Hall tonight.

It starts at 6.30, so if you want to know what Josh can do for Fremantle, and what Labor wants to achieve if elected at the big federal election next year, come along.

If you are not on the electoral roll you can not vote at the Fremantle federal by-election next month.

You have only till Friday to get yourself registered on the roll to be able to vote on Super Saturday on July 28.

My vote will go to former Fremantle Councillor and Deputy Mayor Josh Wilson who has served our community very well and who gave some excellent speeches during his time in Canberra.
