WARNING: To all newborn babies.
Run for your damn lives.
On Saturday March 23 an election will be held to decide who governs NSW going forward.
A few weeks later, most likely in May, a federal election will be held to decide who governs this great nation of ours.
Yes, folks, the election season is in full swing.
We've seen the first major sign of it locally this week with the NSW Liberals committing to build lifts at the Unanderra train station.
This comes after years of telling us it couldn't be done or why the greater priority was to build lifts in marginal seats that no-one will actually use.
At the very least it was a positive sign BOTH major parties are willing to make some commitments for the Illawarra region which has been starved of political attention.
Brace yourself though, it's going to be a long few months.
