Mr Francis said he owed everything to the Jandakot people for choosing him again.

‘I’ve spent the last four and a half years working my guts out for Jandakot and I’m just so grateful the people support me and have allowed me to continue to fight for them,’ he said.

Mr Logan said he would be working to fix congestion around Cockburn Central, pushing the City of Cockburn to purchase hoon cameras, eliminating industrial odour problems and pushing the Education Minister to build a new high school in Hammond Park.

Mr Francis said three of his top priorities were getting the 24-hour regional police station at Cockburn built as soon as possible, involving the community in the development of the Aubin Grove train station and pushing through the North Lake bridge flyover.

Final word from other candidates:

Cockburn

Don Barrett (Liberal): I firstly would like to congratulate Fran on his win at the local level.

We ran a great campaign focusing on local issues like roads and schools, because that is what people expect from their local member.

Derek Rosborough (Independent): As per the last 20 years I have stood, it has become very clear that people in the community only vote Labor or Liberal; (it is a) waste of time and money even standing.

Shannon Hewitt (Greens): The Greens (WA) members and volunteers all worked extremely hard and long hours leading up to the election for an unfortunately poor result. I am saddened to see the Liberal Party win so many seats in WA.

Jandakot

Klara Andric (Labor): We ran a very strong campaign on local issues that mattered to people. I found that people were generally happy with the policies of WA Labor.

However it was always going to be very difficult to win against a first-term government.

John Haynes (Greens): I am obviously disappointed in the result; however the campaign has been a huge learning experience for me.
