Peter Poulos preselected as new Member of NSW Legislative Council


The NSW Liberal Party recently announced that they have preselected Peter Poulos for the vacant Legislative Council position.

Born and raised in the St George area, Peter attended Bexley North Public School and Sydney Technical High School, in the area which he still calls home with his wife Vicki and their three young children.

“I grew up in a small business family, which lost almost everything in the Keating recession, this has been a driving force in my advocacy for all small businesses. I will fight to continue cutting red tape, to help small business to grow and prosper creating more local opportunities,” Peter Poulos said.

After graduating from the University of New South Wales with a Bachelor of Commerce, Peter went on to work in the finance sector.

Having served as a Rockdale Councillor for twelve years, and Deputy Mayor for a year, Peter has been dedicated to delivering services and infrastructure needs of the local community – ensuring an improved financial position that allowed the Council to deliver town centre improvements, new and upgraded playgrounds and foreshore improvements.

“The Berejiklian Government has been doing an outstanding job in leading our state through the challenges of pandemic recovery. I look forward to making a contribution to this important work in the Legislative Council and the Parliament’s committee system,” Mr Poulos said.

“The Government’s record of strong economic management and ongoing investment in our health and education systems, as well as our infrastructure, has placed us well to respond to community needs during these unprecedented times.”

Peter said he is “incredibly excited” to be a part of the Government that, “has more than quadrupled infrastructure funding, with record capital spending of $107 billion over the next four years.”

“It has added thousands more police officers, teachers, nurses and midwives, and has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on St George, Sutherland, Liverpool and Shellharbour hospitals to deliver better health outcomes for our community,” Peter adds.

“I will focus on helping to ensure that we continue building roads and rail lines that our community needs, that will mean less time commuting and more time at home with your loved ones.

“I want to thank the Party Members for placing their trust in me, and giving me this opportunity to contribute to the success of the Berejiklian Government and build on the legacy of the Hon John Ajaka.”
