"The new member for North Sydney, Kylea Tink, is staying grounded despite the prospect of playing a major role in a minority Labor government.

“I’ve got no ideas of grandeur; I intend to be me and to be the voice of North Sydney — I think the nation needs the voice of North Sydney,” she tells Crikey.

Tink has just comprehensively beaten Liberal Trent Zimmerman, surprisingly comfortably in a seat that even ardent teal supporters didn’t think might shift."

"Hundreds of Team Tink volunteers, almost all garbed in what looks like lurid orange T-shirts, but which I’m assured are more a salmon pink, have braved the rain and crammed a function room at the Kirribilli Club in Lavender Bay, within screaming distance of Luna Park. Every time the ABC coverage on the big screen refers to one of the teal seats, a surprised cheer goes up, but those of us following the results in real time are convinced from early on Tink is set for victory, and the growing gap between Tink and Labor’s Catherine Renshaw — who she must beat to stay in the hunt against Zimmerman — confirms that as the evening goes on."

By Bernard Keane for Crikey.
