Gandolfi caught up in political furore

WATTLE Range Mayor Peter Gandolfi has declined to comment on claims Federal Defence Industry Minister Christopher Pyne approached him by phone on June 22, 2013 to stand as an independent against endorsed Liberal Tony Pasin for the seat of Barker.

The claim made front page news in national newspaper The Australian yesterday and has been denied by Mr Pyne.

The minister is currently overseas and The South Eastern Times has sought a comment from his office.

According to The Australian, Mr Pyne responded to its claim by stating that he had never suggested to anyone they should run against the Liberal Party.
