LOCALS will have the chance to
hear from both the District Council of
Loxton Waikerie mayoral contenders at
a forum in Loxton next week.
The Mayoral Forum will allow commu-
nity members to ask both Leon Stasinowsky
and Frances Asher questions ahead of the
voting period at the end of the month.
The Loxton News editor Stephanie
Thompson said the forum would enable the
community to get to know both candidates.
“What I am hearing from the community
is a lot of people don’t know who Ms Asher
is or what she represents,” she said.
“By the same token, a lot of people want
to know what Mr Stasinowsky will bring to
the table in his third term if re-elected.
“The forum will be a great way for locals
to hear from the two contenders and make
an informed decision.”
Mrs Thompson said it was the first
Waikerie-based mayoral contender since
Dean Maywald ousted long-serving Loxton-
based mayor Jan Cass in 2003.
“History tells us that it could be a very
interesting local government election,” she
“It’s important people remember to vote
and hopefully this forum will serve as a
timely reminder for people to do so.”
The Loxton News Mayoral Forum will be
held at the Loxton Hotel in the Reflections
room on Monday, October 15, from 6.30pm.
