West End Community Association and Westender Community Newspaper have announced a Meet The Candidates Community Forum where candidates for The Gabba Ward will appear in person to debate policy and answer questions from the audience.

The event will be held upstairs at The Loft, 100 Boundary Street, West End, at 6.30 pm on Wednesday 10th February 2016. Doors open at 6 pm.

Westender publisher Kerrod Trott said the paper had a tradition of hosting Meet The Candidate forums, where locals could meet face to face with candidates, and make their voting decisions based on a personal appraisal. “We take our politics seriously in West End,” said Mr Trott, “and some of our meetings have been very fiery indeed.”

West End Community Association President Dr Erin Evans said the local community was facing unprecedented population growth and rapid redevelopment, and that candidates for Council needed to make their positions clear on the contentious issues affecting the local community.
