THE Reporter asked Midland shoppers what they believed were the main issues affecting their vote at the March 11 State Election.

Raylene Jones, of Midvale, was disgruntled with the Roe Highway extension (Roe 8) that began last month.

“I have family in the Beeliar Wetlands area and it is important to them Roe 8 doesn’t go through there,” she said.

Toyah Worsley, of Bullsbrook, pointed to crime as the major issue.

“Shoplifting, break-ins and violent crime; I work on Hooley Road in Midvale and we have recently had two shootings about six weeks apart,” she said.

Josephine Colbung, of Stratton, said no one issue would sway her.

“All politicians are the same; they all break their promises,” she said.

Danielle Calleja, of Swan View, believes education should be front and centre.

“Our State schools should be better funded,” she said.

Martin John, of Victoria Park, listed jobs and the economy as his main issues.

“If people are working, they are not spending time on the streets and taking drugs,” he said. “WA is the worst performing state (economy).”
