Labor endorses Jason Khoury for Drummoyne

Fourth-generation Concord West resident and father of three, Jason Khoury has been preselected unopposed as the Drummoyne Labor candidate for the State Election in March 2015.

The Group Principal of his mortgage advisory business on Concord Road,  Jason has a background in business banking for NAB, Westpac and St George for fifteen years before starting his own business.

The 43-year-old taught at St Patrick’s College, Strathfield where he was educated before attaining his degree from Sydney University and a post-graduate degree from the Australian Catholic University.

“As a very proud local, I know our area is a great place to live, work and raise a family – but we can’t take this for granted,” Jason Khoury said.

His three young children attend the local parish school St Ambrose, where Jason also went and his father before him.

“My mother taught at St. Ambrose and our family have a long history in the area. We need a local representative who will fight to secure the improved services and infrastructure needed to meet the needs of our growing community,” Mr Khoury said.

“Since 2011, the Liberals have failed to meet this challenge. School funding has been slashed, waiting times at Concord Hospital are skyrocketing, local fire stations are routinely closed and the public’s access to our beautiful Yaralla Estate is under threat.”

“As Labor’s candidate, I will be out doorknocking and listening to local residents so that I can be a strong voice for our community.”

The youthful-looking Khoury knows a thing or two about fire stations, having worked part-time as a firefighter at Rhodes in his 20s.
