The sub-continent community is proud to support Aisha Amjad who has been endorsed by the Labor Party as a candidate for the Local Government Elections on September 8 2012. She has been announced as a candidate in the Hills Shire Council (North Ward).
Aisha’s parents moved from Pakistan 40 years ago, and she was born and brought up in the Hills Shire. Aisha has played an active and instrumental role in the sub-continent communities through organising and speaking at various events. She is a Board Member of the Sub-continent Friends of Labor organisation, and the Information Officer of the Pakistan Association of Australia.
A lawyer by profession, Aisha’s passion for politics led her to first work as a media/policy Adviser for Federal MP and Shadow Immigration Minister Laurie Ferguson in 2005, and then as an Adviser to Federal Minister Tony Burke, and Federal Member Ed Husic. She has also worked for the Australian High Commissioner, and the Australian Defence Adviser in Islamabad, Pakistan.
Aisha’s interests are in social justice and local issues such as improved access to healthcare, childcare and transport. She enjoys working closely with people from various backgrounds and believes her values from a combined culture of Australia/Pakistan are the driving force in working hard to make a difference.
Aisha is holding a fundraising dinner for her election campaign on Friday 31 August at Spice of Life Restaurant in Harris Park, Sydney. She would love your support as she embarks on her political journey to represent her local area and the broader sub-continent community. If you would like more details on the dinner or can assist in donating towards the campaign, you can call Aisha directly on 0410 786 786 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
