Michael Cooper, a Hunter youth worker, will run for Maitland, while Megan Anderson will contest Swansea. The pair will take on Labor incumbents Jenny Aitchison and Yasmin Catley. In a statement, the party said Mr Cooper was determined to be "a voice for the community" in the Perrottet government. MORE ELECTION STORIES "The Maitland community is in my heart.
