WAYMAN HEADS FREO DESTINATION MARKETING COMMITTEE

It is very questionable if politicians ever learn from past mistakes. The appointment of Linda Wayman to head the Destination Marketing advisory committee of the City of Fremantle is controversial and will no doubt be seen as a political move by Fremantle Council.

Wayman, the former general manager of Southern Cross Austereo, is a close friend of Brian Smith, who is a close friend of and advisor to Mayor Brad Pettitt.

Wayman unsuccessfully stood for City Ward at the October local government election in Fremantle, where she was strongly supported by Brian Smith. Her appointment could be seen as giving her a public profile leading up to the next council election in 17 months from now.

POPULAR FREMANTLE CITY WARD

Posted in city of fremantle, election, local government, Uncategorized by freoview on August 14, 2017

 

Fremantle City Ward is always popular with local government election candidates and it looks like this year is not going to be different.

I hear that the former general Manager of Austereo Linda Wayman will put her hat in the ring and compete against former FRRA convenor Claudia Green and Kakulas Sisters director Michael Finn.

Wayman was in charge of radio stations 94.5 and 93.9 for over a decade until her shock resignation in March this year.

She now works as a business consultant and leadership coach.

In ten weeks from now we will know what the new Fremantle Council will look like, so make sure you have enrolled. Your vote is every important as this is one of the most crucial elections for Fremantle in a long time!
