MEDIA RELEASE Senator the Hon Sandy Macdonald Senator for NSW


NSW Nationals Senator Sandy Macdonald has commended New England Candidate Phil Betts on his campaign.

“Phil has worked hard throughout this campaign and I know he will continue to represent the community in his role as the Deputy Mayor of Tamworth Regional Council,” Senator Macdonald said.

“I must congratulate Phil on running a clean campaign and I know that his wife Lee and his family are very proud of him,” he said.

“I would also like to congratulate Phil on the outcome of the Chaffey Dam funding. He has worked with the community to secure funding from three levels of Government to ensure this project will go ahead. It is now up to

the Labor Government to deliver a timeline for the project completion.”

“The Nationals and the electorate are lucky to have a quality candidate who is as community-spirited as Phil and who is willing to get in and roll his sleeves up for the long-term.”

“I wish Phil and his family all the best for their future endeavours,” Senator Macdonald said.

“I congratulate Tony Windsor and wish him well.”
