Craig Baumann MP Port Stephens talk to Myall Coast News about current issues

Craig Baumann Member of Parliament for Port Stephens wrote this for the Myall Coast News of the area

DEAR Myall Coast News,
I am pleased to serve the community as the Member for Port Stephens.

Last Monday I was involved in interviewing local high school students vying for selection for a trip to Gallipoli and then travelled to Sydney for State Parliament and was unfortunately unable to meet your deadline.

Port Stephens MP Caring Baumann

It was a great pleasure to address the North Arm Cove Residents Association.

There was plenty of spirited debate about a range of issues – exactly what democracy is all about.

I thank the Association for their invitation to attend and as I said on the day, congratulate them for their continued hard work in making North Arm Cove such a wonderful hamlet in which to live and visit.

As you would know, following the ICAC hearings I have stepped aside from the Parliamentary Liberal Party, meaning I sit on the cross bench in Parliament until the Commissioner delivers her final report in January.

I am still a proud member of the Liberal party and I am currently the endorsed Liberal candidate for the March 2015 election.

I have publicly apologised for my errors in reporting donations back in 2007 and reiterate that I have received not one cent in illegal donations and I certainly have not given any inappropriate preferential treatment to any supporter.

Serving my constituents in Port Stephens is my number one priority – the Coalition has been in government for only three and a half years after16 long years of Labor neglect.

We are making NSW Number One again and I look forward to continue working to help make my electorate even better.
