Walt Secord.

The NSW Parliament has had no stronger advocate for multiculturalism and communal harmony than Walt Secord.

He has been a staunch and loyal friend to the Jewish community and other faith and multicultural communities throughout his time in Parliament.

He always made the time to listen to our concerns and work towards meaningful change for the good of all NSW citizens.

Our state is a better place because of Walt’s tireless work across multiple portfolios over the years.

Most notably, he introduced a private member’s bill into Parliament to ban the public display of Nazi symbols late last year. This is now a much-welcomed reality in our state.

The NSW Jewish community as well as the community at large owes him a debt of gratitude and thanks him for his service and immense contribution to public life.

We wish him and his wife Julia well as he steps away from public life at the next election.
