Newly elected NSW opposition leader Michael Daley and deputy leader Penny Sharpe stopped off in Taree on Thursday, November 29 as part of a regional tour.
The duo joined Myall Lakes Labor candidate David Keegan for a walk around the streets of Taree.
Mr Daley gave his full support to Dr Keegan ahead of the State election next March.
“Everyone knows David Keegan, they stopped us in the streets and it was great to see him work his magic with the Taree locals,” Mr Daley said.
Mr Daley said residents spoke about their concerns with health services and education in the Myall Lakes electorate.
With the sustainability of the dairy farming industry under the spotlight in recent times, Mr Daley said he planned to bring newly appointed shadow minister for rural affairs, Mick Veitch to the area to speak with local farmers.
He added the recent resignation of former leader, Luke Foley hadn’t been a distraction to the Labor Party.
“I’m loving the job, I’ve never felt more prepared for anything in my life,” Mr Daley said.
