This is the personal blog of Ian Ker, who was Councillor for the South Ward of the Town of Vincent from 1995 to 2009. I have been a resident of this area since 1985. This blog was originally conceived as a way of letting residents of Vincent know what I have been doing and sharing thoughts on important issues. I can now use it to sound off about things that concern me.

Shame on the Town of Cambridge

Western Suburbs Gazette, 1 June 2014
Shame on the Town of Cambridge - not only for ignoring the City of Subiaco but for spending ratepayers' money on what is quite likely not to happen. Given that there is more than one proposal (with major differences between them) affecting each of Cambridge and Subiaco, it is pointless even thinking about matters relating to wards and councillor numbers unless and until a decision has been made on which is to come about.

The whole Local Implementation Committee process being forced on local governments is premature and, given the range of possibilities (including staying as they are) facing most local governments, much of the effort and resources being put into them will be wasted.

For once, I agree with the City of Perth, which has refused to form an LIC with Vincent on the grounds that it does not know what it is that is to be implemented.
