- Martin, Margaret (Preferred)
(Catherine) Margaret Martin was a very successful local government councillor with nearly two decades of experience: she was Alderman of the Randwick Municipal Council from 1983-2001 and Mayor from 1992-1993 and again from 1996-1997. However this experience did not help her gain election to state parliament where she stood twice as a Liberal candidate in the New South Wales Legislative Assembly elections for Coogee in 1988 and 1995.
