Inaugural Speech - 30 May 2007

Tradition, Mr Speaker, is seeping through the walls of this green Chamber, filling the air.  With a great sense of occasion and tradition I welcome those in the gallery as they, in a sense, welcome me to their NSW Parliament.  In accordance with a tradition as old as this green Chamber itself, I am delighted to deliver my inaugural speech as Member for Davidson.  I follow periods of admirable service from previous Members Healey, Metherell and Humpherson.  I also formally acknowledge that this Parliament sits on the traditional land of the Gadigal people of the Eora nation.  We are all but custodians.

“This Saturday, the people of Davidson have a very important choice to make - another four years of Labor making excuses for 12 years of mismanagement, or a change for the better.  Jonathan O'Dea, Liberal candidate for Davidson said.

“The reality is, if Labor wins thanks to their dishonest and negative advertising campaign, nothing will change. Michael Costa, Frank Sartor and Joe Tripodi will all be back making a mess of things all over again.
