Local member retires from NSW seat

Jillian Skinner was last re-elected in the election we described in this article: northsydneyelects.blogspot.com.au/2015/03/nsw-election-prizes

From the Guardian News & Media Ltd article by Bridie Jabour @bkjabour on Friday 27 January 2017.

She became shadow health minister in 1995 and she has spent almost all of her time in the portfolio. She was minister for health for almost six years after spending 14 years in total in the shadow role.

This means that:
  1. The Liberal Party will have lots of choice for their candidate for the safe seat,
  2. The minor parties will fancy their chances,
  3. Candidates for Joe Hockey's Federal seat will reappear, and
  4. We won't have the "snooze fest" we had in the 2015 State Election.

Stay tuned and see who pops up this election.
