The successful candidate in the upcoming Gosford By-election will be voting on a range of issues affecting our community.
One will occur later this year when a cross-party parliamentary working group will present a bill to legalise voluntary assisted dying for people who are terminally ill.
I am concerned to know the position of all candidates on this important issue, as it will influence my vote.
For several decades, a large majority of Australians have supported the need for assisted dying law reform, but to date their views have not been reflected by politicians voting in several State Parliaments.
This year, NSW MPs will have the opportunity to finally change the law to give people suffering a terminal illness the right to choose a dignified and peaceful death.
How will our Gosford member vote?
