One of the must-win battleground seats in the upcoming NSW election will be in the spotlight at this month’s NSW Jewish Board of Deputies plenum.

Coogee is held by the Liberal Party by a margin of just 2.9% and will be fiercely contested by both Labor and The Greens.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian told The Australian last week: “It’s going to be really tight. It will come down to a handful of votes in a handful of seats. Anyone telling you otherwise isn’t telling the truth”.

The sitting member for Coogee is the Liberal Party’s Bruce Notley-Smith MP, the current Chair of the NSW Parliamentary Friends of Israel. His key challenger is the Labor’s Dr Marjorie O’Neill, who sits on Waverley Council and played rugby for the NSW women’s team.

Board of Deputies president Lesli Berger: “The Coogee electorate encompasses a number of our major institutions, including Moriah College, Emanuel School and the Montefiore Randwick, as well as a significant percentage of our community members. The election forum will be an opportunity for the community to hear directly from the candidates and to put questions to them. Please come along.”

The Coogee electorate covers Bronte, Bondi Junction, Clovelly, Coogee, Randwick, Queens Park, South Bondi, South Coogee, Tamarama and Waverley.
