LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTIONS 4 DECEMBER 2021
KU-RING-GAI COUNCIL – COMENARRA WARD
13 CANDIDATES FOR 2 POSITIONS
WHO SHOULD GET YOUR VOTE?
Ku-Ring-Gai council has been totally dysfunctional for the last two months and most people will be pretty disappointed that our elected representatives have been behaving like a mob of selfish pre-schoolers. Hopefully, all that will change after the Local Government elections on December 4. Over the 5 wards(10 seats), there are a total of 50 candidates including 7 sitting councillors seeking re-election. Are we spoiled for choice!
Only two candidates (in Wahroonga Ward) have declared a political affiliation. The other 48 candidates are either “independent” or undeclared, but 19 of these are members of the Liberal Party. Go figure!
See here for details of the candidates’ affiliations.
13 candidates will be jostling for the two council seats in the Comenarra Ward, including the sitting councillor, Jeff Pettett. We don’t know much about the other candidates, but Jeff has been a friend and supporter of the KPPA for the past nine years and we would very much like to see him get re-elected. He has tried to advance the interest of South Turramurra residents on many occasions, but has been blocked by an opposing faction in Council which appears to see our ward as a bit of a backwater. Jeff is smart enough to pick a running mate with similar values and integrity to his own, so we extend our support to Trish Lynch. No doubt the other 11 candidates for Comenarra are also worthy, but the KPPA supports Jeff’s proven record and demonstrated independence.
KPPA SUPPORTS JEFF PETTETT
& TRISH LYNCH
