Only two of the candidates for the upcoming State Election for the seat of Willoughby fronted a community forum last night organised by the Federation of Willoughby Progress Associations.
The registered candidates are:
|Bennett Emma Jane||Animal Justice Party|
|Berejiklian Gladys||The Liberal Party of Australia New South Wales Division|
|Keogh Daniel Terence||The Greens NSW|
|Penn Larissa Jan|
|Reiss Justin||Australian Labor Party (NSW Branch)|
Only the Premier and Larissa Penn attended the forum.
There was a good rollup pf local residents who put questions to the candidates.
Questions were varied – except as politicians do, the actual question often wasn’t really answered. Rather it was used as a topic. Only about 75% of questions were put as Gladys had to go at 8.30.
Larissa Penn spoke passionately about her concerns with the Northern Beaches tunnel.
Security was tight.
Crowd was polite
