Bounds, Kayleen

Summary

Kayleen Bounds was an active supporter of the One nation Party founded by Pauline Hanson. She ran for them in the 1999 New South Wales Legislative Assembly for East Hills and in the House of Representatives for the New England seat in 2001.

Details

Kay Bounds was a resident of East Hills when she ran for the State seat in 1999. She had worked with St John's Ambulance for the previous 11 years and was on the committee and the Board of directors of the Revesby Blue Light Disco. She opposed the upgrading of the Bankstown airport and promised to fight for more police in the area.

She had moved to the New England district when she ran in 2001, and expressed confidence in how well the One Nation party would poll. This confidence was misplaced. She polled only 2% of the vote, dropping more than 11% from the previous election.
