Politics in Local Government.

July 23, 2014

While I certainly welcome Gillian Hicks’ bid for entry into the field of local government via a seat on Unley Council, I wonder why it is necessary to declare herself as an “Independent”.

While there have been instances of politics in the past (former Mayor Michael Keenan, for example, contested  a seat on North Terrace) never in my years on Unley Council have personal political preferences been an overt  issue in dealing with local matters.  And I think that most of us know where our political allegiances lie.

Third-tier government is the most trusted out of the three levels. Long may this situation continue.
