Opinion: Bassendean councillor takes wrong approach on gay marriage

IF Councillor Paul Bridges is so hell-bent on flying the rainbow flag, let him put it in his front garden.

The people have spoken, including our mayor, and it is an emphatic thumbs down to the spontaneous proposal without consultation with the community or other councillors.

Cr Bridges cannot go it alone without their support on such an important issue such as gay marriage.

He is to be commended for taking a stance, but he has gone about it wrong way, and telling everybody in his letter last week to “lighten up” smacks of arrogance.

GERRY COLEMAN, Bassendean.
