Karen McNamara

Member for Dobell

As a working mother, Karen knows first-hand the challenges facing Central Coast families, with job security and rising costs of living.

Karen and her husband John are proud to call the Central Coast home. Fourteen years ago, they recognised the Central Coast as a safe, healthy and positive environment and the perfect place to raise their two boys, Kevin and Cameron.

Karen has always believed in giving back to the community and is proud to work with local community and sporting organisations including the Warnervale Rugby Club, the Warnervale Sports Group and Warnervale Neighbourhood Forum. With her strong local connections, Karen knows the challenges facing hardworking families.

Karen has forged a successful career in public administration with the NSW Government, having worked in senior roles for over 20 years. Through her career she has had the opportunity to work directly with many local businesses, and understands the need for greater investment in the Central Coast to create local jobs.

Karen wants to use her community and government experience to deliver real results to improve opportunities for all on the Central Coast.
