Daryl William Maguire MP JP (born 1959), an Australian politician, is a member of the New South Wales Legislative Assembly representing Wagga Wagga for the Liberal Party of Australia since 1999. On 30 March 2011, Maguire was appointed to Government Whip in the O'Farrell-Stoner Liberal/National coalition government.[3]

Early years and background[edit]

Maguire has an extensive involvement with local community organisations.[3] He is married with two children. Prior to his election to parliament, Maguire worked as a local store proprietor and franchisee.[4]

Political career[edit]

Elected to represent Wagga Wagga in 1999 following the retirement of long-standing sitting member, Joe Schipp, Maguire has held the seat comfortably whilst in opposition. In 2003, Maguire was elected Opposition Whip and since 2011 is now Government Whip.[5]

At the 2011 state election, Maguire was challenged by Dr Joe McGirr, a local doctor and Director of the Emergency Department at Wagga Wagga Base Hospital. Maguire suffered a swing against the Liberal Party of 5.5 per cent, although won the seat comfortably with 52.5 per cent of the vote on primary count.[4][6] In somewhat controversial circumstances, the Electoral Commission of New South Wales chose to distribute preferences between Maguire and the Labor candidate, Glenn Elliott-Rudder, who polled third on primary votes.[7]
