State election: Week two on the campaign trail

Week two coverage of the state election started slow at the end of the week and finished with a busy day, we covered areas in Cabramatta and Wollondilly electorates.

Covering the life of our state politicians on the campaign trail this week took us in our travels to the Cabramatta electorate where we spent some time with Nick Lalich meeting parents, as they dropped their children off to school at Harrington Street Public school in Cabramatta West. 

Support for Mr Lalich was obvious, parents running over and thanking him for support last week at another event he attended.

Another resident was so impressed, as he believed Mr Lalich was the reason that Cabramatta was a cleaner place now. Mr Lalich although thankful, was quick to point out the NSW Police had much to do with that. 

The most notable evidence of support was one father posing for a photograph with his children and Mr Lalich, and then went on to say it was going up on Facebook. Which we also captured.

IN THE WOLLONDILLY ELECTORATE

Heading out to the border of the south west Sydney, the foot of the mountains was a visit to the Warragamba Dam, where we met up with Wollondilly Mp Jai Rowell and NSW Water Minister Kevin Humphries for the announcement the dam would be open to the public on a permanent basis, from later this month.

While spending some time on the dam wall with Mr Rowell and Mr Humphries, they seemed to enjoy the view back up the river that was on offer, we captured some behind the scenes pictures.

The opening of the dam is something that Mr Rowell had been pushing for quite some time now as it will help bring some life back into the Warragamba town centre. Obviously he was excited about that, so will many people that will have the chance to walk out on top of one of Sydney's most important pieces of infrastructure.
