THE WA Liberal Party endorsed Phil Blight the Liberal candidate for the State Electorate of Wagin at the 2013 State Election at its recent state council meeting.
Mr Blight has lived and worked in the district all his life and has been willing to represent the community in a variety of voluntary organisations.
Married to Taryn and having three adult children, Mr Blight sees this election as a watershed for regional communities.
Through his involvement in Local Government, he has built up a large network of contacts and has the ability to lobby effectively for a cause.
Mr Blight has been involved in many voluntary organisations such as the Wagin Woolorama, Land Care and sporting groups such as the Upper Great Southern Hockey Association, Wagin Hockey Club and the Piesseville and Highbury Tennis Clubs.
He has been prepared to work co-operatively with people to build a greater community.
To keep Colin Barnett as Premier it is important that he wins in Wagin.
The Liberal Party goes into this election with 23 seats compared to the Labor Party with 27.
To retain Liberal-led Government, the Liberals need to win seats like Wagin.
“I am proud to be a part of the Barnett Liberal team whose strong commitment to regional WA is unprecedented in our State’s history,” Mr Blight said.
“Royalties for Regions is here to stay.
“My leader, Colin Barnett has made that very clear, I have it in writing.
“The National Party is trying to scare people into thinking they have to vote National just to keep Royalties for Regions and that’s just rubbish.
“It is legislation and the Liberals and Labor have said they will keep it.”
Premier Colin Barnett said he was proud to have Phillip Blight as their Liberal candidate for Wagin.
He believed that his strong connections to the community meant he was the ideal person to represent his region.
“Mr Blight wants to be a part of the Liberal team which has invested in regional Western Australia,” he said.
