Phil White (politician)
White came to Sydney as a printing apprentice at the age of sixteen. He was three times married, one child from his first marriage, two children from his second marriage and four stepsons from his third marriage.
In 1988, White was elected to the New South Wales Legislative Assembly, winning the seat of Earlwood for the Liberal Party. He defeated sitting member Ken Gabb, who had held the seat for ten years. However, in 1991 the seat was abolished, and White contested the notionally Labor seat of Hurstville, losing to future Premier Morris Iemma.
