Conservative Party leader Senator Cory Bernardi has announced today that Sydney barrister Sophie York will lead the Conservatives’ New South Wales Senate ticket.
The 51 year old married mother of four is a published author, university lecturer, community leader, member of the Royal Australian Navy Legal Reserves and an advocate for many deserving causes including an advocacy group against the sexual exploitation of women and children.
“The people of New South Wales now have a clear, principled, conservative alternative,” Senator Bernardi said.
“Sophie’s extensive legal and community leadership experience makes her an ideal candidate for the Conservative Party.”
Sophie said, “The Senate, as Australia’s house of review, is such a vital part of our federal government and I am truly honoured to have been selected by the Conservatives as their lead senate candidate for New South Wales”.
“I’m very keen to serve my nation and my state in the parliament under the banner of a party in which I believe and one that actually holds true to principled, common sense policies that I’m very passionate about,” she said.
