TWO Fremantle residents’ groups say they’ll run council candidates to try and change the direction of the city.
The residents and ratepayers, and inner city residents associations have banded together to try and attract new blood and say one of the aims is to nurture future council candidates.
FRRA chairman Mark Woodcock says while they’re not setting out to bag the council, they don’t feel that it’s genuine in its consultation and too many voices are being ignored.
They’ll run workshops to generate new ideas, as he says they’re suspicious the Freo 2029 vision wasn’t a real reflection of community attitudes.
The Fremantle Society was going to join in, but president Henty Farrar pulled out of the deal this week.
