It’s almost as rare as hen’s teeth to see two politicians from the opposite side of the fence come together for anything, let alone a photo opportunity while receiving a framed Certificate of Appreciation from the council.
But that was the case when Campbelltown Council held a reception for former MPs Doctor Andrew McDonald, (Labor) and Bryan Doyle (Liberal) a couple of weeks ago.
And when the mayor, Paul Lake, praised the efforts of the former Members for Macquarie Fields and Campbelltown respectively, you almost start to believe there’s hope for our politicians yet:
“Bryan Doyle and Dr Andrew McDonald were highly-respected representatives who achieved many great things for our city during their terms of office,” Cr Lake said.
“Both men served our area honourably and with passion, advocating for improvements to our city and ensuring Campbelltown was on top of the Government’s agenda.’’
