Yankalilla Council Elections

localsIf you have a vote, and have not yet cast it, now is the time to do it. The issue that most people care about is dogs: who is most likely to roll back the ridiculous anti-dog by-laws that we have recently been suffering from?

In Field Ward, Leon Zarins will get my top vote as a dog-lover. You have to vote for 4 candidates. So for me, that is:

  • Zarins
  • Rothwell
  • O’Neil
  • Wetherby

So – Olsson certainly does not get my vote!

In Light, you would probably want to go:

  • Gibbs
  • Leverington
  • Quirk
  • Marks
  • Verwey

With a bit of luck, enough dog lovers – or just people who recognise that the wishes of most residents should prevail over the demands of a few activists – will get elected, so that the Council will again to allow us to freely exercise our dogs on the beaches. Last time around, the numbers of people who voted was tiny – the current crop got in on about 10% of the number of people who have signed petitions asking for the dog laws to be rolled back.

BTW this post is not paid for, or approved by or on behalf of any candidate. So anyone who gets excited by section 321D(5) of the Electoral Act can settle down.
