Local Government Accountability & Transparancy

Monday 12th October / posted by Chris Wheeldon

Perth’s lord mayor Lisa Scaffidi was found by Western Australia’s corruption watchdog to have committed several acts of serious misconduct.

Western Australia’s Corruption and Crime Commission released a damning report last Monday, which said Ms. Scaffidi failed to disclose three costly gifts including a US$36,000-a-head trip to the Beijing Olympics.

The report comes in the lead up the 16th October mayoral election at which Scaffidi will be seeking to win her third straight four-year term.

RTRFM’s Cameron McAloon has spoken to Chris Thomson, the Journalist who broke the story and Mayor of Vincent John Carey who is an advocate for local government reform.
