Greens blast candidate over party logo ‘vandalism’
The WA Greens have condemned their Pilbara candidate after he was allegedly caught vandalising shopping centres in the City of Karratha.
CCTV footage provided to the Pilbara News appears to show Pilbara candidate Brent McKenna spray-painting Greens party logos on the pavement outside the Wickham Newsagency at about 5.30am this morning.
WA Greens co-convenors Grahame Bowland and Sarah Nielsen-Harvey released a statement distancing themselves from their candidates actions.
“We are disappointed by the alleged behaviour of the Greens candidate for the Pilbara this morning,” they said.
“We expect nothing but the highest level of conduct from those running under our name.
“These alleged actions were not authorised or endorsed, and are not condoned by the party.”
Forty-six tags were also identified at the Karratha City Shopping Centre.
Mr McKenna declined to comment.
Roebourne Police are yet to lay charges.
