Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : February 25th 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, February 26, 2009 15 NEWS It's anything but picture-perfect Mayor Keith Kwon Cr Danny Lim SHIREEN KHALIL STRATHFIELD'S Labor councillors failed to save photographs of the mayor and deputy mayor in council advertising. At last Tuesday night's council meeting councillors Hope Brett-Bowen, Sundar Eswaren and Keith Kwon had a signed motion to withdraw the banning of photo- graphs of the mayor and deputy mayor in the mayoral column and other promotional material. The other signed motion was also to withdraw having a councillor from a differ- ent party attend meetings with the mayor. But both motions were lost when the two independent councillors, Danny Lim and Paul Barron, together with Liberal council- lors Bill Carney and Tony Maroun, voted against them. ''I don't think not having photos of the mayor will affect the local community,'' Cr Carney said. ''It will actually save the council money on printing costs . . . something has to be cut down and, if it's the mayor's photos, so be it. The mayor said it didn't worry him, but it would have an impact on the community. ''It will affect the future of mayors and deputy mayors to promote council activi- ties,'' Cr Kwon said. ''I just have to question the councillors' motives. Let's drop all the silly political games and get on with the real job . . . that's all I can say.'' Cr Carney said having a councillor from a different party attend meetings was a great idea. ''Whatever meeting we have, Keith Kwon invites one person and that's Virginia Judge, but she's not the only local member -- what about Tony Stewart?'' Cr Carney said he was disappointed with the mayor. ''I'm just not happy with (him) to be honest. His behaviour is something I'll be taking up by putting in a complaint.'' Jobless stats lower than most UNEMPLOYMENT in the Inner West is still lower than the national average, even though more residents have lost their jobs since this time last year. Figures for the last quarter showed that 11,200 people across inner Sydney and the Inner West were unemployed, an increase of 1.5 per cent from December 2007. But the area's overall unemployment rate stood at 3.7 per cent, according to the government figures, lower than the national average of 4.8 per cent.
