“Meet the candidates” forum for Charlestown, Lake Macquarie and Swansea

Meet the candidates from Charlestown, Lake Macquarie, Swansea at Windale-Gateshead Bowling Club Wednesday 16th March 2011 5.30pm

SOR will hold a “meet the candidates” forum for Charlestown, Lake Macquarie and Swansea in the lead up to the State Election. All welcome

This event will be an opportunity for members and friends of SOR to hear the candidates for these seats. Meetings have been held in Maitland, and for Newcastle and Wallsend.

The Windale-Gateshead Bowling Club is in Lake St Windale (turn right at traffic lights into Lake Street Windale off the Charlestown Bypass just before Harvey Norman). For your information, the Club has a $6 meal special on Wednesday nights in the Bistro.

This forum will allow members and supporters of SOR to hear from candidates about their plans and to question candidates about the funding and planning of improvements to public transport.

Save Our Rail believes that it is important to retain the direct rail into Newcastle Station, to and from the region that sees our city as its capital, while improving access between Hunter Street and Honeysuckle. Newcastle needs this regional connection.
