A god-fearing Christian, a conservative, a former high flying banker – Mike Baird continues to be at the helm of the state’s financing for the last three years.
They reveal an electorate, they’ve surfed together, plus they are Christian conservatives.

Early direction dreams
But Barry O’Farrell had other thoughts.
On Wdnesday, Mr Baird stated he was “very saddened and shocked” by Mr O’Farrell’s resignation, but the prime minister’s unexpected departure paved the method for the Treasurer’s ascension to the state’s best job.
