Statement from Mayor Peter Carter

Published on Friday, 19 November 2021 at 9:17:29 AM

On Tuesday 16 November 2021, Channel 7 aired a story which referenced a comment I made in an hour-long interaction with an individual who I have known for many years. She came into my place of business to raise matters well outside that of my control and my mandate as Mayor. 

This interaction was recorded without my consent or knowledge. As I was at my place of business in the middle of a working day, I was not speaking on behalf of the Town of Port Hedland nor the Council at any time during this interaction. 

I do accept the comments I made in the heat of the interaction were wrong and inappropriate. It is important to note the matters discussed with the individual are complex and private. I apologise for any offence I have caused her and wish to state that her personal wellbeing is a matter of concern to me. 

Mayor Peter Carter
