Independent candidate Dai Le made news when she defeated former NSW Premier Kristina Keneally in their bid to win the seat of Fowler as voters turned against the Labor candidate who was parachuted into the electorate.
Le, well known in the electorate as the Fairfield Deputy Mayor, overturned Labor’s 14 per cent margin to claim victory and cause a massive upset for the Labor party which has  held this ‘safe’ seat consecutively for 38 years.
