“Of the people, by the people, for the people”

Abraham Lincoln, “Gettysburg Address” (19th November 1863)

The mission of the West Australian ratepayers and residents’ association incorporated is to advocate on behalf of and represent the community of Western Australia (metropolitan and country). As the peak community representative, it will establish changes in legislation, policies and procedures. These changes will set mandatory standards for open community consultation, communication, excellence in governance, accountability and transparency in Local Government Authorities.

"for when we suffer, or are exposed to the same miseries by a government, which we might expect in a country without government, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer."

(Thomas Paine 1737-1809)
