All four candidates in the race to be Mandurah’s next mayor will be facing off at a Madora Bay town hall meeting on Thursday night.
Organisers from the Madora Bay Community Association said Mayor Marina Vergone and challengers Rhys Williams, Peter Jackson and Mark Brzezinski would take part in a question and answer session on both Mandurah-wide and Madora Bay specific questions.
“The City of Mandurah is the largest and most influential local government authority within the Peel region,” a spokesperson for the association said.
“The mayor plays a pivotal role in setting the tone for everything that happens within the City of Mandurah, and therefore has considerable influence over the future of the Peel region.
“Our choice of next mayor will shape our lives over the coming years. To help make an informed decision with your vote, we urge you to come and learn about each Mayoral candidate in person.”
Candidates would have the opportunity to speak on questions provided by the association and then answer questions from the floor.
Questions already provided to the candidates include:
- What is your vision for Mandurah and the Peel region?
- If you’re elected next Mayor of Mandurah, what will be your top three priorities?
- What is your view about establishing one or more new train stations between Mandurah and Warnbro?
- What is your attitude to community members attending monthly council meetings and sharing post-meeting refreshments with councillors?
The event is open to the public and will be held from 7-8.30pm, Thursday, September 28, at Madora Bay Hall, 3 Orelia Street, Madora Bay.
