 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.
