Peter Kelly for Cook
I have had a distinguished career in the military (Infantry and Intelligence) that spanned 25 years. That service took me all over the world. I am a competent Chinese interpreter/translator and am also proficient in Russian and some South East Asian languages. I have held positions on the boards of both private and public companies and am currently an elected councillor in NSW.
On an academic level, I have studied both in Australia and offshore and am currently a law student at Sydney University.
I am no stranger to politics at a Federal level either, having occupied an adviser role for a federal parliamentarian in the 45th parliament. Now I am having a tilt myself in the seat of Cook in Southern Sydney.
If elected, I intend to champion veterans issues, plus those impacting farmers, particularly water supply and the establishment of a public bank to service our rural economy.
