Councillor Robert Petreski

With an envious lifestyle, strong population growth and exquisite natural beauty, Shellharbour City residents have many genuine reasons for optimism.

I was born and bred in the Illawarra and have lived in Shellharbour for 30 years. I am a devoted father and volunteer for several local sporting and community groups.

I work for the NSW Department of Education and have an honours degree in Design and Technology, plus qualifications in Training and Assessment, Information Technology and Electrotechnology. I completed an electronics apprenticeship winning several national and international awards for my work, ranking 4th in the world for one competition. I won the Youth Endeavour Award and was a semi-finalist in the Young Australian of the Year Awards. Later I established, built and sold a local electronics business which is still thriving.

My vision is to build on our strengths including our natural environment and coastline, Shellharbour City Centre, Shell Cove Marina, Albion Park Regional Airport, Lake Illawarra Foreshore and Croome Road Sporting Complex.

I want to continually explore new economic, social and lifestyle opportunities. I will work ethically, act in good faith, make decisions and take actions which best serve our community, ensuring objectivity, accountability, transparency, integrity and leadership.
