Wicks uses parliamentary speech to support Pilon

Federal Liberal Member for Robertson, Ms Lucy Wicks, has used a speech in parliament to support the Liberal candidate for the Gosford by-election, Ms Jilly Pilon, and to deride Labor.

"Our local Liberal candidate, Ms Jilly Pilon, a small-business owner and passionate local, will seek election for the State Seat of Gosford so the Central Coast can have a strong voice in the state government to ensure that Gosford and the Central Coast has its voice heard," Ms Wicks said.

"After 16 years of Labor's neglect, we are now starting to see the transformational results of one and a half terms of state Liberal government on the Central Coast."

Ms Wicks spoke of the achievements a state Liberal government had made on the Coast, including the $348 million rebuild of Gosford Hospital, the Central Coast Medical School and Health and Medical Research Institute and the relocation of more than 300 public service roles.

She said the $23 million roads package for the Gosford electorate, announced by Ms Pilon and NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, was further reason to back the Liberal candidate.

The funds included $8 million for roads in Point Clare, $2 million to improve safety around Point Clare Public School, including a 40 kilometre per hour school zone and $13 million for Blackwall Rd and Memorial Av on the Peninsula.

"This record of listening and delivering is much more important than the white noise and the smokescreens that we hear from Labor with their scare campaigns and their empty promises on commitments that they cannot even deliver because they are in opposition," she said.

"It has only been the Liberal Government that has committed vital funds to build the Gosford Regional Performing Arts Centre, with $12 million towards this cultural heart, including the conservatorium.

"Labor, on the other hand, is busy protesting about which site the Performing Arts Centre will go on-50 metres one way or the other-despite it being a council responsibility.

"But that is to be expected, because all you ever get under Labor on the Central Coast are protests and words and no delivery."
