Member for Myall Lakes Stephen Bromhead has been formally re-endorsed as the NSW Nationals candidate for the 2019 State Election.

“I am grateful for the support the community and The Nationals membership has shown me over the past seven years and it is an honour to have been pre-selected as The Nationals candidate for the 2019 State Election,” Mr Bromhead said. “In my time as your local member, plenty has happened and been delivered, but there is still a lot to do. This role affords me the tremendous privilege to serve my constituents to the best of my ability and get the results that they need.”

Among those Mr Bromhead serves are people like Elena Swegen, owner of Burraduc Buffalo Farm at Bungwahl on the Lakes Way near Forster. An innovative farmer, milk from Elena’s water buffalo makes some of the most incredible cheeses without the need for artificial aids or preservatives.


Mr Bromhead said he was proud of what the Nationals in Government had achieved to date for the Myall Lakes region.

“The Myall Lakes electorate has seen record investment, all our schools have received funding to clear the maintenance backlog, Stage One of the Redevelopment of Manning Hospital is underway and we have just announced a $100 million roads package,” Mr Bromhead said. “I have a clear vision for the Myall Lakes, and want to be sure that we deliver on all of the projects that have been committed to. I will continue to engage and work with the community and I will always work to deliver for the people of the Myall Lakes.”

Projects underway across the Myall Lakes Electorate include;
• Building a new state-of-the-art Police Station in Taree
• Upgrade to Taree High School
• $40 million Stage One Redevelopment to Manning Hospital
• Upgrades to Wingham Rugby League Football Grounds
• Seven classroom education centres for Old Bar School
• New SES Unit to be located in Tuncurry

“In March 2019, I will look to the community to judge me on my track record of delivery over the past seven years, and they will know that in me, they have someone who is a fighter and believes in the Myall Lakes,” Mr Bromhead said. “The Myall Lakes region holds a special place in my heart. I have lived here for close to 40 years, run a business and raised my family here. I am proud to represent this region and I’m passionate about doing what’s best for our communities and for Regional NSW.”

Mr Bromhead’s priorities for the future include:

• Reclassification of Lakes Way and Buckets Way to State Roads
• A Public Hospital for Forster/Tuncurry
• Funding for Stage Two of the Redevelopment of Manning Hospital
• A purpose-built Women’s Shelter for the Great Lakes
• Major upgrades to Wingham Showground
