ALP candidate for Gilmore Neil Reilly celebrated the opening of his campaign office on Worrigee Street on Saturday, August 10.
With a group of fellow campaign workers, Mr Reilly said after 17 years it is time for a party change in Gilmore.
“My main priority is to make a change to the shocking levels of unemployment in the area and secondly, for transport and education,” said Mr Reilly.
“I believe that whatever happens in Canberra we will have a new member for Gilmore and I am asking people to look at an opportunity for change,” he said.
Mr Reilly said if elected he would like to consider creating a Shoalhaven Development Corporation to help receive grants, working to develop a more successful economy similar to the successful Hunter Development Corporation in Newcastle.
