An honour to be returned, says Wicks
Member for Robertson Ms Lucy Wicks has said it was a tremendous honour to be returned for a third term in the Federal election.
"This is an honour and an outstanding endorsement of our plan for the Central Coast and an endorsement of what we have delivered over the last six years," she said.
Ms Wicks said she had held the seat of Robertson by a slim margin of 1.1 per cent and had now increased that to more than 4 per cent at current count.
"I am so grateful for the support I have received.
"I love being the Member for Robertson and cannot thank my supporters enough.
"I look forward to the next three years, working with the people of the Central Coast and seeing our commitments become a reality."
Labor candidate Ms Anne Charlton congratulated Ms Wicks: "I congratulate Lucy Wicks on retaining the seat and I wish her well for the next three years in supporting this community.
"It has been a great honour to represent the Labor Party and stand with a movement that has for more than 120 years fought for a better deal for working people.
"We ran a strong and united campaign against a government that only cared about itself and its mates at the big end of town."
She said she would continue to hold the Liberals to account for the promises they made during his election and from their last term.
Central Coast mayor Cr Jane Smith called for all levels of government to work together to deliver the funding and infrastructure commitments promised in both the recent State and Federal elections.
Cr Smith thanked all candidates for their commitment to the Central Coast and for prioritising funding commitments to the areas the community valued the most.
"My congratulations to all the sitting members who were re-elected in both the recent State and Federal elections," Mayor Smith said.
"I also thank all those candidates that put up their hands to be considered for election.
"It is only through a robust democracy that we all prosper.'
