Legislative Assembly Election was held on 17 March 2017.
It was a fantastic effort by former Mayor of Mosman Park Ron Norris to pick up nearly 10% of the vote for the WESTERN AUSTRALIA PARTY in the Liberal safe seat of Cottesloe.
Ron’s fearless campaign on the GST for WA and local issues forced the Liberal Party to make election promises in the seat of Cottesloe like never before. The Cottesloe electorate was promised the sale of public housing in Mosman Park, lower density duplex and single storey dwellings, low rise on Cottesloe beach, funding for the Peppermint Grove Tennis Club, and realignment of Curtin Avenue to address traffic congestion.
It’s a hollow victory for Mr Honey, polling 20% less votes in most polling booths than in 2017, and election promises to keep! The Greens campaign picked up less than 1,000 votes out of a possible 5,280 Labor votes. Labor didn’t support a candidate this election.
The Western Australia Party is over the moon with the result in Cottesloe, and thank the voters for their support in this election.
