      The WSWS article on the local government elections gives Peter
      McDonald's first preference vote in Manly as 39%. This may be the
      result of a confusing S.M.H. article which claimed that McDonald had
      won 39% more first preference votes than Liberal incumbent Jean Hay.
      The election was a two horse race and Peter McDonald won 59% of the
      vote and lost only one booth and that by just six votes.

      It is true that the A.L.P. failed to have anyone elected to
      Council. The A.L.P. ticket polled just around 800 votes well behind
      the Greens who polled around 1400 and just ahead of a team of
      independents. It will be the first time in over a quarter of a
      century that the A.L.P. does not have representation on either the
      Manly or Warringah Councils. My father was one of two A.L.P.
      Councillors elected to Warringah Shire Council in 1977. At the
      following election in 1980 the A.L.P. won four seats and also held
      the two local State seats of Wakehurst and Manly following the
      Wranslide in 1978.
