SOUTH Perth council wants the administration to scrap the former mayor’s portrait and get a new one done, just like the other boring ones.
At public expense too. What a waste.
Haven’t our elected representatives got their minds on big issues for our future? This is not one of them.
How about transport planning, economic development, child and community health, social links in our changing world and rapid population growth?
Do the councillors think we elect them as art critics?
For really good art there’s a fine exhibition at the Art Gallery of WA, which hosts the Picasso to Warhol exhibition.
I do so wish our councillors were better at community leadership and imagining the future. I wish they looked to the big picture, not the small portrait.
There is so much more that good councillors could do.
