Fiona Douskou endorsed as NSW Liberal candidate for Newtown

·

Cybersecurity specialist and technology entrepreneur, Fiona Douskou, has been endorsed as the Liberal candidate for Newtown.

Ganddaughter of a migrant Greek family that settled in Newtown, Fiona grew up in a small business family with her parents and grandparents successfully running their own businesses locally, and she started her own child entertainment business straight after high school.

“Small businesses are the lifeblood of our community, creating valuable local employment opportunities and helping people to get ahead,” Ms Douskou said.

“Our communities have endured a challenging time, and the Perrottet Government has been working incredibly hard to provide support and take the pressure off businesses and families.

“At the coming election people will be asked to make a choice that will decide the future of our state, and only the Perrottet Government has the real leadership and experience to move NSW forward.

“I’m running to be a part of the Perrottet Liberal Team, which has been focused on making it easier for people to get health care services at the local pharmacy, fixing stamp duty to help our first home buyers, and standing up to powerful interest groups.”

Fiona is a member of the Australian Women in Security Network, NSW Cybersecurity ambassador and youth mentor, and is the Culture Chair of a Diversity and Inclusion Team delivering advocacy and support for Women, LGBTQI+ and Indigenous Australians.

“I have always been focused on creating a better future for our community, by championing diversity and embracing the great things we can achieve by working together,” she said.

“I am excited by this opportunity to use my passion and experience to advocate on issues that are important to this community – from easing the pressure on household budgets to investing in more local public transport.

“If elected, I will be a strong and effective voice for Newtown, advocating for more local jobs, frontline services this community needs, and community infrastructure. I am running to make a real difference and be the change catalyst for this community.

“The Perrottet Government’s plan to support and empower this community will make living here better and more affordable and together we will keep NSW moving forward.”
