The City of Cockburn deserve better leadership than the current incumbent Steven Lee can hope to deliver after being found by the CCC to have engaged in misconduct on five separate occasions. The whiff of corruption will hang in the air for as long as he is allowed to remain. John Castrilli must sack the whole council to allow the city to start afresh. Those Councillors who have conducted themselves in exemplarary fashion will have the opportunity to be re-elected. As often happens in life the majority have to pay for the indiscressions of a single person who is unwilling or too cowardly to own up. Roger Jardine Clarke
