The message above will be delivered to every home in Fremantle.
Fremantle has great potential as a soulful soothing character filled heritage place of endless stories, a 'cut and come again' Magic Pudding if maintained properly.
At the moment it is a grubby, neglected, broke town, with too much anti social behaviour.
Fremantle cannot afford more of the same poor oversight from the same councillors, two of whom (Crs Sullivan and Thompson) have been on council for far too long - a total of over 50 years!
We would appreciate hearing from you if you are available to help deliver these DL flyers or to make a donation to their cost.

McGurk Rejects Petition of Over 6,000 Signatures and Refuses to Accept it
The Fremantle Society is working with Save Freo Bridge Alliance to create a New York style High Line bridge with the heritage listed Fremantle traffic bridge for pedestrians and cyclists.
A petition for this exciting idea has attracted close to 7,000 signatures. But when the petition was presented to the local MP Simone McGurk a few days ago, she refused to accept it.
Shocking behaviour from a local MP, something former local MP Adele Carles said today she would never have done.
Reminder: Tuesday Night City 21 September City Ward Candidates' Forum
Dr Carmen Lawrence, former Labor Premier, is moderator for this 6pm event at 44 Cliff Street on the corner of Croke.
The Chamber of Commerce, Fremantle Network, and Fremantle Shipping News booted The Fremantle Society out of the organisation of the Mayoral Candidates Event in the same venue on 30th, without even discussing that with the Fremantle Society.
A stunt was pulled to resurrect a dormant precinct (South City Precinct) to hijack the Fremantle Society/FICRA meeting, but that political skullduggery failed.
Our event next Tuesday is for the candidates to have plenty of time to discuss their ideas and policies and for you to ask questions on the night. Unlike the Mayoral event, you are not asked to send your questions by email or to book tickets.
Loopers Lashes Out
Roel Loopers from Freo View, whose nastiness and attacks on the Fremantle Society are well known, criticised the City Ward Candidates' Forum as being a right wing Liberal event - despite it being moderated by a former Labor Premier.
His ignorance and nastiness were evident in his response to one of many critical comments about his usual bias. He wrote:
"Just f-ck off. I have no time for you entitled knockers. You would not even understand what the word community means."
