Freo's View

Fremantle Councillor Sam Wainwright is not happy with the scare campaign his election opponent Catherine Hammond is engaging in.

The Hilton Ward Councillor reported to Fremantle Council yesterday that Hammond had claimed in a flyer she has distributed that Council wants to sell off Frederick Samson Park and the Samson Recreation Centre for development.

Wainwright, who also reported the beat-up, authorised by Fremantle Society president John Dowson, to the Electoral Commission, stated there has never been a suggestion at Fremantle Council to sell of Frederick Samson Park and that it is crown land anyway vested in the City.

Wainwright conceded that the ten-year budget has a suggestion of selling off a part of the land the recreation centre is built on, but that this is unlikely to happen any time soon, and would require State approval as the land title use is for recreational only.

Jeff McDonald

Jeff McDonald is the first Fremantle candidate to nominate for the October Local Government election for the Hilton/Samson Ward.

Jeff is the Manager Medical Workforce at Fremantle Hospital so the ideal person to put a bandaid around the pain Freo Council sometimes causes in the community.

I have no idea if Jeff is aligned to any of the political parties or if he is a true independent, but we’ll find out more about him in the next three months.

Good on you Jeff for stepping up and caring enough about our community to try to take on such a responsibility!

If all goes ahead as planned with the council mergers, tomorrow might be the last time Samson is part of the Fremantle Festival, so make it an historic trip to Samson Park at McCombe Avenue for the CHILDREN’S FIESTA from 10-3 and the JAZZ IN THE PARK from  5-7 pm. Songwriter and singer Shameem, who is Australian born but has a Chinese-Malaysian mother and Iranian father, will sing tell her heartfelt stories in a fusion of R&B, soul and jazz.

Notre Dame University has an afternoon of CLASSICAL ENCOUNTERS in courtyards and uni buildings from noon to 6 pm, so don’t stay home on Sunday!

Simone McGurk, Labor candidate for the seat of Fremantle at the March 2013 state election has gone the modern way by setting up pop-up or mobile offices around Freo to meet locals and find out what it is they want. It’s probably a better and more efficient way to connect with the community than door knocking.

Peter Tinley, Member for Willagee is also promoting his “mobile office” in newspaper advertisment.
