CANDIDATES PUT THEIR HANDS UP THE FOR SEAT OF BARWON

Candidates are coming out of the woodwork for the 2019 state election in the seat of Barwon.

Current MP Kevin Humphries has announced he’ll be stepping down after more than a decade in the job, endorsing the Nationals candidate Andrew Schier (SH-I-A) alongside deputy premier John Barilaro.

Gilgandra’s Phillip Naden has put his hand up as an Independent, while Roy Butler will run for the Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party.

Speculation mounts over whether Broken Hill Mayor, Darriea Turley will run for Labor.
