Bilic is Libs man in McMahon
FEDERAL Liberal has nominated former Blacktown City Councillor George Bilic as their candidate for McMahon in the upcoming election.
Until recently it was up in the air as to who would be the Coalition’s nomination for McMahon with sources from within the Liberal Party suggesting former Senior Police Officer Ray King could be pushed into running.
Mr Bilic has previously work with local church organisations and volunteered in charity groups across the Blacktown and western Sydney region.
According to his website, if he was elected he would continue to support Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s commitment for an increase in employment opportunities at a local level.
Currently holding the seat of McMahon is ALP MP and Shadow Treasurer Chris Bowen, who won the seat by claiming 48 percent of the primary vote.
Sportsbet have the odds very much in favour of Mr Bowen retaining McMahon with Labor sitting on $1.01 and the Coalition sitting on $16.00.
