Williamtown ‘Elected Representative Group’ a farce Williamtown, Salt Ash by NOTA - October 26, 2016 State Member for Port Stephens Kate Washington and Federal Member for Paterson Meryl Swanson have slammed the NSW Government for scheduling a Williamtown Elected Representative Group meeting at a time when both State and Federal Parliaments are sitting. “These meetings are convened by Scot Macdonald, a NSW Upper House MP who is well aware of when Parliament sits. He would also be aware of my commitments as a member of Shadow Cabinet, to attend a Shadow cabinet meeting in Sydney on Monday,” Ms Washington told News Of The Area.

It is outrageous.” “It is very poor planning that this has occurred, and I have requested that future meetings be held at a time when elected representatives can attend,” she said.
