Barry Cohen was popular and energetic Member
Mr Barry Cohen, who was Federal Member of Robertson from 1969 to the late 1980s, died recently.
He was a popular and energetic local member.
Barry was the Environment Minister in the Hawke Government and he achieved much for our Australian environment.
At that time, I wrote him a letter complementing him on his great work.
He wrote back saying politicians get much criticism and very little words of praise.
We both have fond memories of a very good local politician.
