been selected by the Labor Party to stand for Terrigal in this very important election,” said Mr Sundstrom. “The Central Coast is a great place to live, work, and raise a family, but for too long we’ve been taken advantage of by the local Liberals.” A long-time resident of Kincumber, Mr Sundstrom raised five kids on the Coast with his wife Jenny, and has served the community for 31 years as a firefighter. “I’ve seen the Central Coast change over the years, but what I see now is the Coast getting left behind under this Liberal Government,” he said. “Waiting times at Gosford Hospital are rising because of cuts to health, TAFE funding has been gutted with teachers sacked and courses scrapped, and $40 million has been ripped out of local roads. “We need a strong health system and more opportunities for our young people to get the skills they need to get into work. “As a firefi ghter, I’ve seen firsthand what the Liberals are doing to frontline services. “A number of fire stations have already been forced to close due to budget cuts, and this is putting lives at risk across the state,” Mr Sundstrom said. With seven months until the election, Mr Sundstrom said he was already hitting the ground running in his campaign for the seat. “I’m looking forward to this challenge, and I will knock on as many doors and talk to as many voters as it takes to get Labor over the line. “I’ve spent my working life serving our community as a firefighter, and now I am proud to be standing as a real community candidate for the seat of Terrigal,” said Mr Sundstrom.
