Asher Cookson

Federal Candidate for Aston

Hi, I'm asher.

Aston is a strong, united community, and as your Greens voice, I’m ready to fight for a future free from the climate crisis, protections for LGBTQIA+ people, access to affordable housing and safeguards for our social services.

I grew up in the Outer-Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne. I went to school here and I work here. I've seen first-hand how the major parties are leaving people and especially young people behind, how people are locked out of the housing market, forced into casualised and insecure work, struggle to access affordable medical, dental and mental health care, and are experiencing extreme weather events caused by climate change.

I’m running as your candidate because the people of Aston deserve a representative who will listen and fight for what matters.

With the Greens in balance of power, we can work together to build a better future for everyone.
