Finances first

My suggestion to him would be to focus on these portfolios, in particular the Treasury portfolio, as our State is the worst governed in Australia.

That would be more helpful than listening to your self-serving, ill-informed bluster distributed on July 25 and every time someone disagrees with you in the local papers.

I would also like to inform Local Government Minister Tony Simpson that as of February 24 there were 3657 petitions and 536 Local Government Advisory Board submissions completed.

That didn’t include the ones that went directly to the board. There have been three more meetings since then, along with three more lots of petitions and emails.

The other matter that I would like to address is Mr Simpson’s comment that Canning Accountability has 27 ‘likes’ posted and that 800 people turned up for the Saving Canning meeting on March 6.

If he took the time, he would have found there were more than 1000 people at that meeting. There is also a video on the website of the proceedings and the crowd.

At that meeting and the two later meetings there was at least the same number of people at both. At all three meetings, petitions were signed and more emails were send directly to the board. As of September 14, there were 535 ‘likes’ on Facebook.

It is rather obvious that absolutely none of this correspondence was taken into account or has it been ignored. It is a great pity that he could not take the time to attend these meetings and see for himself instead of being led by someone who is acting in their own interest.

Mr Simpson and Dr Nahan need to realise that the people of WA are not as stupid as they think. We have long memories.
