In early February, Graham Franklin-Browne attended Wilson’s campaign launch. The Labor candidate has been on the campaign trail for the past 18 months, meeting and listening to voters. He’ll be out there until election day March 23.
COUNTRY LABOR CANDIDATE Bryce Wilson spoke to an enthusiastic crowd of over 100 friends and supporters at Queanbeyan Park last Sunday, promising to ‘leave nothing in the tank’ in his campaign to unseat Deputy Premier John Barilaro in the upcoming NSW elections in March.
Wilson pledged increased funding for schools, hospitals and health services, promising that regional NSW will have the same nurse-to-patient ratio as big city hospitals.
He said that he has already driven more than 25,000 kilometres, visiting communities around the region. His team has knocked on more than 16,000 doors (with at least 10,000 to go) and has delivered over 30,000 leaflets.
The federal Member for Eden-Monaro, Mike Kelly, spoke in support of the Monaro candidate, emphasising the importance of running a parallel campaign to get policy coordination at federal and state level, especially on matters related to the environment, and getting the right policy settings for clean renewable energy.
“The LNP has sacrificed the environment in NSW, and their supporters in the leafy suburbs of Sydney’s North Shore have lost sight of what is happening around the country,” said Dr Kelly.
