Liberal pre-selections for the Central Coast Council electionsLiberal pre-selections for the Central Coast Council elections

The Liberal Party has preselected candidates it believes can win positions on the Central Coast Council.

It will now invite other candidates to stand with them so each ward had a Liberal Party ticket consisting of three candidates. Mr Troy Marquart of Somersby has been pre-selected for the Gosford West Ward on Sunday, July 30. Ms Rebecca Gale Collins and Ms Kerryanne Delaney were preselected in the Gosford East Ward, where the Liberal Party believes it can get two councillors over the line in the September 9 election. The NSW executive of the Liberal Party was expected to act quickly, within the week, to endorse preselected candidate but had not announced Mr Marquart’s endorsement by August 4.
