Opinion: Good information on local council roles

Opinion: Good information on local council roles

I WANT to congratulate the Fremantle Gazette for publishing the facts and fiction of important local council roles.

It is clear from comments on social media and talkback radio that many people still do not understand what the role of the elected members is, and what the duties of the administration are.

The information you provided is very valuable to the community.

I urge everyone to cast their vote at the Fremantle council election in October, especially young people.

It is your future councillors decide on, so take advantage of your democratic right and privilege.
