A Rebels bikie has announced he
will be fighting for a seat in state parliament.
Peter Johnson, a life member of
the Rebels Motorcycle Club, has put his name forward
as one of six candidates fighting to take over from
Troy Buswell in the seat of Vasse.
The former Treasurer held the seat
with a margin of 21 per cent and the Liberals
candidate Libby Mettam would seem to be the front
runner to take over.
The former journalist has spent
many years on the electorate staff of South West
Region member Barry House. She lives in Dunsborough
and is the Vice-President of the Dunsborough
Yallingup Chamber of Commerce.
Local businessman Peter Gordon is
running for The Nationals.
The rest of the field is made up
by Michael Baldock from the Greens, Wayne Barnett
from the Australian Christians, and Independent
Teresa van Lieshout
