Country Labor party has announced their candidates for the impending state and federal elections. 

Debra O’Brien and Yvonne Langenberg have joined the state and federal election campaign trail, respectively.

Armidale Regional councillor Debra O’Brien has put her hand up as a candidate for the seat of Northern Tablelands ahead of next year’s state election.

Ms O’Brien ran as the party’s candidate in the 2015 state elections but struck out against incumbent state member Adam Marshall, who has held the seat since May 2013.
