Perhaps Ms Scaffidi could have chosen word more wisely than "Business as Usual" at the City of Perth as that phrase would suggest that nothing has changed.

If any other City, Town or Shire Council did what The Lord mayor of Perth did, deliberate or not they would have been immediately stood down until fully investigated as a Shire Councillor you are guilty by accusation until you can substantiate your innocence to the Dept of Local Government. Why any different here?

Where are the criminal charges? A $40k trip to Beijing for over a week puts a big hole in the Mayors calendar, and no one thought it was necessary to record it - come on! Seven years of fraud is what I see. Selective "omissions" and "oversights". The position comes with a rule book and it is obvious, even to "Blind Freddy", that the rules have been abused. Criminal charges should be applied to EVERYONE involved with these deceptions. It is time to draw a line in the sand and clean up local government.

A couple of oversights doesn't mean someone is unfit for the role & should resign. Senior business people have so many things to remember all the time, sometimes things can get missed, despite the best intentions. Lisa does a great job for the City of Perth & I hope she continues for many terms to come.
