Liberal pollster's farcical vault on to sports board - Media Release

LIBERAL POLLSTER'S FARCICAL VAULT ON TO SPORTS BOARD 

Liberal pollster Mark Textor has vaulted on to the Australian Sports Commission board in the latest example of Turnbull’s ‘jobs for the boys’.

Greg Hunt today announced Mark Textor as one of three new appointments to the board, along with AFL Commissioner Gabrielle Trainor and former director of Tennis Australia and the Hopman Cup, Andrea Mitchell.

Ms Trainor and Ms Mitchell, who is also a former MLA for Kingsley in Western Australia, both have extensive experience in sporting administration and are well placed to serve on the ASC board.

Mr Textor’s experience is largely limited to helping to elect conservative governments through his political polling work. Previously, he’s been more interested in “Rekindling” the careers of conservatives than in wins for Australian sport.

Current Liberals in danger of becoming former Liberals must be starting to worry there are no plum positions left to be appointed to.
