Summary

Di Gibson ran only once for election to the parliament of New South Wales: in 2003 as an Independent for the New South Wales Legislative Assembly seat of Wallsend.

Details

Di Gibson, who lived at Maryville, when she stood for the seat of Wallsend in 2003, said that she was contesting the election to give people a choice. She believed that they had been taken for granted and deserved better representation, particularly in the areas of public education, public health, public transport and public safety. She outpolled both the Australian Democrat and the Christian Democrat candidates. Di worked as a teacher for students with disabilities.
