Reid says he was overwhelmed by support and trust

Incoming Labor Member for Robertson Dr. Gordon Reid has said he was "overwhelmed and humbled by the level of support" shown to him in election.

Yesterday, with 85.1 per cent of the vote counted, Labor's Dr Reid held 46,903 votes on preferences (52.1 per cent of the vote) while Liberal Ms Lucy Wicks held 43,184 votes (47.9 per cent).

Robertson was one of the first electorates to be called for Labor in what commentators were calling a "bell wether" seat for government.

He said the people of Robertson had placed trust in him and his "vision for a better future for the Central Coast".

"I believe the Central Coast is one of the best places to live, raise a family and realise your full potential," he said.

"As your new Federal Member, I will always be accessible, and I will always be dependable.

"I look forward to working towards our election commitments, both nationally and locally.

"This includes a Medicare Urgent Care Clinic, a community battery, significant upgrades of our local roads and sporting facilities.

"I will not take this privilege of representing my community lightly, and I will strive to be the strong representation that Robertson deserves.

"I thank my predecessor Lucy Wicks and her representation of Robertson over the past nine years and wish her and her family well."

Dr Reid is pictured celebrating with Labor Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch.

"I want to congratulate my good friend Dr. Gordon Reid," she said.

"Gordon will be a fantastic Local Member and I can't wait to work with him to make a big difference in our community."
