Just 24 hours after the state government announced amalgamation boundary changes, Cockburn residents band together to protect their city.
Approximately 100 residents attended the major meeting which was held at the Cockburn City council building.
The residents discussed their campaign move which includes rallies, signing petitions, contacting local MPs and dropping off flyers in the neighborhood to raise awareness.
Cockburn City Mayor Logan Howlett told WAMN News that he was encouraged to see the high attendance at the meeting, and said the council will put forward a strong and compelling case to the Local Government Advisory Board (LGAB).
“It’s very encouraging to see such a wide cross section of our communities, sporting, cultural clubs and etc coming out tonight to support the City of Cockburn in a move to ensure the retention of the city,” Mr Howlett said.
