No fights on Ben­ne­long home front

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - News -

NEI­THER of the would-be Ben­ne­long MPs lives in the north­ern Syd­ney elec­torate.

Kristina Ke­neally shares a home with her husband Ben about 800m out­side the elec­torate in Boro­nia while John Alexan­der lives in North Bondi with his part­ner.

Ms Ke­neally ar­gued she has strong ties to the area as she would travel there for her work at Mac­quarie Univer­sity and Sky News — po­si­tions she yes­ter­day sev­ered ties to on her an­nounce­ment that she was run­ning for the seat.

“I come into this com­mu­nity ev­ery day. I spend most of my day in Ben­ne­long,” she said.

“This is where I live, this is where I work, this is where my fam­ily is, this is an area of Syd­ney that I have had a long con­nec­tion to and that I love.”

Mean­while Mr Alexan­der lives in the home of his part­ner Debbie Chad­wick in the lux­ury en­clave of North Bondi in Mal­colm Turn­bull’s Went­worth elec­torate af­ter re­port­edly down­siz­ing from a fam­ily home in the elec­torate he has rep­re­sented since 2010. He is look­ing to move back to the elec­torate.
