Four candidates nominate for Liberal preselection for the seat of Gilmore


Former NSW Transport Minister Andrew Constance might be a "great member for our team" according to Prime Minister Scott Morrison, but his bid for Liberal pre-selection for the Federal Seat of Gilmore won't be without a contest.

Four Liberal candidates, including high profile Shoalhaven businesswoman Jemma Tribe,  have nominated for preselection for the marginal seat which is currently held by Labor's Fiona Phillips.


Ms. Tribe, who's a former Shoalhaven City Councillor, resigned from the Liberal Party state executive to nominate for the Gilmore pre-selection which closed on Friday.


Former Christopher Payne staffer and Sanctuary Point resident Stephen Hayes is a confirmed nominee.

Mr. Hayes sits on several government boards and served in the Royal Australian Airforce for 29 years.


A fourth nominee is Shoalhaven Lawyer Paul Ell.

The 31-year-old is currently standing for election to Shoalhaven City Council in Ward Two.
