Simon Kennedy sends message to Greek community ahead of Cook by-election


Next Saturday, April 13, the by-election in the federal seat of Cook takes place following the resignation of former Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morrison. The Liberal candidate for this seat, Simon Kennedy, has sent the following message to Greek community on why he should be elected.

Our country faces real challenges. Households and small businesses are struggling with the cost of living under Labor.

Australia’s inflation is currently higher than every major advanced economy.

In Cook, over 60 percent of households either have a mortgage, or are paying rent. Unfortunately, interest rates and rent increases have been at their highest levels in over a decade.

Under Labor, real incomes have fallen 7.5 percent, the largest fall of any developed country, putting millions of Australians under financial stress. On average, households are around $150 a week worse off since Labor was elected.

If elected, I will be part of a Liberal team focused on strong economic management, to take the pressure off inflation, interest rates and your household budget. This includes supporting small businesses and providing affordable, reliable and clean energy.

I would bring my experience working with governments, businesses and the not-for-profit sector in solving problems.

I learned the values of hard work and service from my mother who worked hard to support me and my grandfather, who served in World War II, and helped raise me.

As your representative, I would stand up for people who work hard to get ahead and support those who give back to the community. Most importantly, I will always listen.

Let’s work together to build a better future.
