The Liberal Party has unveiled candidates for the 2019 State Election in the Lower Hunter.
Our Club President Blake Keating will take on Labor’s Tim Crakanthorp in in the Seat of Newcastle.
Maitland Councillor, and former Deputy Mayor, Sally Halliday will challenge Jenny Aitchison in the Seat of Maitland.
Jennifer Barrie a marketing and events coordinator will contest the seat of Charlestown.
The candidates have a tough task ahead of them, challenging traditionally safe Labor seats, Mr Keating said in a press release “I understand this is going to be a tough campaign, but I have a strong belief that Novocastrians have benefited greatly from the Berejiklian Government’s economic management, revitalisation, light rail, supercars, Bathers Way project and record funding in health and education”
The endorsement of Blake Keating shows that Young Liberals can have a real impact in our area and in the future of our region.
