Councillor David Hume

Fremantle Inner City Residents Association have written to Fremantle Councillors and the Mayor regarding the removal of the Mound on Esplanade Park. See my post on 22 October.

Councillor David Hume replied to a committee member of FICRA with the following:

“You are wrong.

No trees were killed in the sending of this message, but a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.”

When the committee member received this response she rang David Hume and for her efforts got an earful of diatribe and yelling about how he is fed up with people blogging and spreading opinions based on fallacy and inaccuracy and if she was interested in the truth and want facts why don’t she come out on a cold wet night to a Council meeting like he does.

Councillor Hume, you do not deserve to hold any public office and in fact your words and actions reflect badly on the Council. At the very least you should apologise, but a resignation would be more appropriate.

Bloggers like me do not always have the facts, and that is why we welcome comments and I will remind everyone that I still have not had an answer to my post regarding voting or NOT on the Saturday Markets proposal.

  1. I agree with you Graham. I will have to ‘google’ this David Hume – thus to quote “a large number of electrons (will be) terribly inconvenience” to find out what this ‘hard working’ councillor is about? Does he have to be so rude and abusive? If he does not want to inform us the ratepayers of what is happening – I am sure there are individuals living in Fremantle who would put up their hand to replace him!

  2. It’s a bit too east for councillors to attack bloggers like us. We facilitate community debate and make up for the bad communication by the City of Fremantle.

    Only yesterday, while reading the agenda for this eve’s full council meeting, did I see council will consider four locations at the Esplanade for the skate park, but have identified tow as preferred sites.

    We’ll know more about it tonight and I’ll be listening to the debate.

  3. I Agree Graham, FICRA has little to do with David Hume and its a shame he didn’t take the opportunity to explain his thoughts on the Esplanade Park. I wonder if he supports the residents and rate payers of Fremantle in their push to have some lawn at Bathers Beach in place of the limestone and concrete.
