The career of Catherine Cusack in 2011

When her party was elected to government in 2011, Premier Barry O’Farrell controversially removed her from the front bench, allegedly for alienating the Shooters and Fishers Party by suggesting she would not allow hunting in national parks.

She received broad political support in May 2011 for strong criticism of her administration’s contentious decision to amend a Solar Bonus Scheme retroactively, decreasing tariffs from 60 cents to 40 cents for customers who signed up before November 2010 under the defeated Labor government.

Catherine Cusack’s Post-2013 Career

She reiterated her support for gay marriage at a March 2013 meeting of the NSW Parliament’s Standing Committee on Social Issues but said she feels very alienated and often looked down upon by gay culture.

She also accused ACON and the LGBT community of “‘looking down’ on women and purposely excluding them from AIDS-fighting efforts.”

She stood by her statements in April, adding that gay culture is alive and well in Sydney, and she was merely wondering if it was an inclusive culture.

Catherine Cusack’s 2015 Career

Cusack served as Parliamentary Secretary to Premier Mike Baird from 2015 until his resignation in January 2017.

She was appointed Parliamentary Secretary for Education and the Hunter by Premier Gladys Berejiklian, who was unopposed in her election to succeed Baird.

She resigned two months later, in February 2017, after sending Premier Gladys Berejiklian a nine-page memo criticizing her cabinet appointments and colleagues.

She won preselection for the Liberal Party’s Upper House Northern Province against Scot Macdonald in November 2018 and was subsequently re-elected in the preceding 2019 NSW state election for an eight-year term ending in 2027.

She lost her job as Parliamentary Secretary in November 2020 after voting against the disputed Local Land Services Amendment Bill 2020.

Her courageous position received considerable support globally, causing her government to reconsider how to properly protect koala ecosystems.

She resigned from parliament in March 2022, blaming the federal government’s handling of Australia’s east coast flooding issue.

She resigned as Parliamentary Secretary after strongly criticizing the composition of the new government in an email to Premier Gladys Berejiklian.

Her email singled out Energy Minister Don Harwin, who was appointed to cabinet and named government leader in the Legislative Council in the most recent upheaval.
