Our 24th birthday ... and another election

This is the 24th birthday edition of Peninsula News.

And, to celebrate, we have a bumper 16-page issue.

Issue number one of Peninsula News was dated April 1999, but it was actually published ahead of the March 1999 State election.

It contained contributions from the candidates: Labor Ms Marie Andrews, Liberal Ms Debra Wales and Democrats Mr Geoff Preece.

With our 24th birthday, we again face a State election - next Saturday, March 25.

With the extra pages in this issue, we have included a four-page Election lift-out, allowing generous space for candidates to respond to local concerns.

When we started we were the first paper in 25 years to give exclusive coverage to the Peninsula.

Prior to that, there was much happening on the Peninsula that was not covered.

"The Peninsula News aims to inform the community of all vital developments, to provide a forum for discussion and to engender pride and involvement in our community," we wrote.

"To do this successfully, we need your support."

Peninsula News has been successful, primarily because it has received community support.

As we enter our 25th year, we continue with these aims and continue to welcome your involvement and support.
