McGowan Snubs Rockingham

Opposition leader Mark McGowan and Rockingham member has rejected an invitation to participate in a local Rockingham debate.

Independent candidate Matt Whitfield had been trying to organise a debate between labor and liberal said he was disappointed with McGowan, 'after weeks of claiming his diary was full, no reason was given at all' for the non attendance.

Whitfield said McGowan,

'is happy to appear in the state papers on a daily basis flying around WA but he cannot spare one hour for the electorate of Rockingham.

He (McGowan) accuses Colin Barnett of being arrogant in his belief that the Liberals will win the election and I would level the same accusation at Mr McGowan, he is being arrogant in his belief that he can win the seat of Rockingham without even coming to the electorate.'

The debate will be now held on Wednesday February 27 with Greens Dawn Jecks and Liberal Matthew Pollock.

The #wa2013vote website will be kept online so politicians promises and statements can be checked until the end of next WA election in 2017, and after.
