Shadow Minister for Justice and Police, Corrections and Emergency Services, Mr Guy Zangari MP, and State Member for Wallsend, Ms Sonia Hornery MP, will hold community forums across the Wallsend Electorate today.
The forums will be an opportunity for local residents to hear from the Shadow Minister and raise issues they feel are important to them.
The O’Farrell-Baird-Berejiklian Government has continued to ignore the western suburbs of Newcastle and pleas for an increased Police presence and improved emergency services have been ignored.
