Most responsive politicians - Parliamentary term ending March 2011
Responsive Politicians Praised
In the past term of the NSW parliament, six MPs have stood head and shoulders above the rest in terms of responsiveness to voters, no matter where they live, on a range of issues.
Best responding MP in NSW during the current Parliamentary term was the Liberal Member for Davidson, Mr. Jonathan O’Dea.
Second was retiring Liberal Member for Hornsby, Ms. Judy Hopwood.
Third was the Labor Attorney General, and Upper House MP Mr. John Hatzistergos. This is no mean feat for a person with ministerial responsibilities.
The remaining three in alphabetical order were:
Independent Member for Tamworth, Mr. Peter Draper
Labor Minister for Education and Member for Balmain, Ms. Verity Firth
Retiring Liberal Member for Baulkham Hills Mr. Wayne Merton
FairGO director, Mr. Greg Bloomfield congratulated and thanked the six MPs saying “ We thank these six Members of Parliament for the exceptional way in which they have responded to voters. If all politicians responded to voters this way, NSW would enjoy very good government."
