Hi, I'm Kobi Shetty

I am so proud to be your Greens candidate for Balmain in the upcoming State election.

I’m a long-term local, living in Lilyfield with my husband, three kids and our dog Zola. I’m an Inner West Councillor, a former financial fraud prevention specialist, and a firefighter's daughter. 

I have worked alongside Jamie Parker MP for years to deliver for our community. I have led local school climate strikes, worked to increase transparency over council decisions, spearheaded the campaign for safer cycling infrastructure, and pushed for more public housing on public land

Now I’m asking for your support to continue what Jamie has started. 

Both NSW Labor and the Liberals are beholden to big corporations who will spend millions to keep them in power. I’m running because Balmain needs an effective, independent voice in NSW Parliament to hold them to account. 

No matter who wins government next year, I will push them further and faster to tackle the climate crisis, protect our local area from overdevelopment, address housing affordability, make getting around Sydney easier, and stand up for integrity. 

Kobi Shetty
Greens candidate for Balmain 

P.S. Unlike Liberal and Labor, I never have and never will take a political donation from a corporation so I will always put our community first.
