Peter Strong

Candidate for Rockdale

I am a father of two living with my family in Arncliffe, I run a screen-printing and solar sound system events business and am active in local social and environmental justice campaigns.

I ran for the Greens locally in the 2016 Local Council elections, the 2017 NSW State elections and the 2021 elections where I missed getting on Council by 100 votes.

I am running for the seat of Rockdale in the March 25th State elections.

 I have been a community builder in Sydney’s Inner West for over 20 years working on campaigns and co-created events that draw attention to many environmental and social justice issues. I have also campaigned for indigenous rights, urgent action on climate change, and the rollout of sustainable energy and community-friendly public urban transport being valued more than profit/toll-driven new road developments like WestConnex and the F6.

 I believe the Bayside area needs a transparent and accountable governance that plans to bring people together to co-create better ways to tackle today's problems like affordable housing and climate change.

 We need Local and State Government that’s accountable, free of vested interest corruption to help roll out policies for a safe and sustainable system for all, not an urban environment with dwindling air quality, tree canopy, and green spaces.
