A crowd of 300 flocked to Parramatta RSL for their chance to question NSW government ministers last night.
At the opening of a community cabinet meeting from 6.30pm, Mr Baird said his government’s “glorious team” had presided over improvements the state had not seen under the previous Labor government.
“If you look at where we were three years ago compared to where we are today, it’s quite stunning,” Mr Baird said.
‘‘Three years ago, we had the slowest employment growth, we had the slowest economic growth, the lowest business confidence, the lowest retail sales and housing sales down about 50 year lows. Now, across every single one of those indicators we are currently leading the nation, that is a huge step forward.’’
Government MPs took questions on matters including the North West Rail Link, support for students with disabilities, travel concessions for international students, child care regulation changes and the safety of mobile phone towers near schools.
Some of the attendees included Transport Minister Gladys Berejiklian, Health Minister Jillian Skinner, Roads Minister Duncan Gay, Justice Minister Brad Hazzard, Education Minister Adrian Piccoli, Planning Minister Pru Goward, Ageing Minister John Ajaka, Baulkham Hills MP David Elliot, Finance Minister Dominic Perrottet, Hawkesbury MP Ray Williams and Hills councillor and Liberal candidate for Seven Hills Mark Taylor.
