FAY Samuel, the current Vice-President of R2K and a former Deputy Mayor of Kogarah, has stepped back into local politics by standing for Kogarah's Middle Ward in this Saturday's election.

IN another boost for Oki Jubilee Stadium, Kogarah's Liberal Party candidates have expressed their support for the next stage of improvements to the Dragons` spiritual home.
