Katherine O'Regan

Community • Business • Experience


“She is the authentic local candidate and she has worked in both the private sector and three tiers of government. She is an independent thinker and not afraid to ask the right questions when necessary. I am confident that if pre-selected she will be an outstanding candidate and Liberal member”

The Hon John Fahey AC

Former Federal Finance Minister, NSW Premier

“We are very lucky that people with such talent, skills and experience are willing to put themselves forward to represent us. I sincerely hope Katherine is preselected as she has the capacity to hit the ground running to fight a by-election campaign and ensure Wentworth remains in Liberal hands.”

Chris McDiven AM

State President NSW Liberal Party 2000 – 2005

Federal President Liberal Party of Australia 2005 – 2008

“In my view Katherine is exactly the kind of contemporary Liberal candidate we need to win the Wentworth by-election. She has strong academic qualifications, an extensive track record of community activity in Wentworth, and an impressive story to tell about her accomplishments as a businesswoman and executive.”

Paul Fletcher PM

Federal Member for Bradfield

“In my role as a Councillor I have worked with several Chambers of Commerce, particularly in Double Bay, and the current Chamber under Katherine’s leadership is by far the most successful. She has demonstrated her support for small businesses and introduced some important initiatives to enhance Double Bay. Katherine has demonstrated she is a long-standing Liberal who stands for Liberal values.”

Isabelle Shapiro OAM

Liberal Councillor for Woollahra, Bellevue Hill Ward.

“I cannot think of a person better prepared and more capable of taking on the seat of a former Prime Minister. Katherine is ready for the role for the people of the electorate and to serve the nation. There are many able people the Commonwealth might have turned to, but Katherine has positioned Cities Leadership Institute as the “go to” urban innovation organization across the nation.”

Professor Edward J Blakely

“Coupled with her own proven track record as a former elected Liberal representative on Woollahra Council, her public and private sector experience, her long-standing local Liberal Party branch membership record, and brilliant support for grassroots Liberals both within and outside of Wentworth, Katherine O’Regan I feel would make an exceptional local representative for the people of Wentworth”.

Cr Brendan Roberts

Randwick Council

“I see Katherine O’Regan as a stand out choice for the Liberal Party’s nomination for the seat of Wentworth. Her character, personal skills, presentation and appeal in such a seat goes without saying. She has the personality and skills to bring more women back to the Liberal Party, at a time when the percentage of female voters who vote Liberal has declined.”

Anne Henderson

Executive Director, The Sydney Institute

“Katherine is a true liberal who consistently impresses me with her business acumen, political nous and implicit belief in the future potential of our nation. Katherine has demonstrated she has the right skills, enthusiasm, tenacity, passion, real-life experience, energy and focus to be a great Parliamentary representative.”

The Hon Robyn Parker

“Katherine O’Regan was elected as a Councillor to Woollahra Municipal Council in September 2012. I was elected Mayor for my fifth term and Katherine was elected my deputy. Katherine was very keen to learn all about the workings of Local government and threw herself unto the role with a commitment I had rarely  seen in the past.”

Andrew Petrie AOM

“Katherine is a rare talent. She combines intelligence and insight with people skills to achieve significant outcomes. Her experience as deputy mayor with Woollahra Municipal Council have hones her political and networking skills which have been invaluable to the Chamber in achieving outcomes for business and the greater community. She possesses great organisational skills and a passion for hard work, I can think of no better Liberal candidate for the Federal seat of Wentworth.”

Greg Kelly, B.Juris LLB

“Katherine’s CV identifies extensive experience as a commercial board director specialising in banking and finance, economic development and urban management, exposing her to regulatory and governance frameworks. I believe that Katherine’s diligence, breadth of public and private sector experience and personality are attributes of a fine Member of Parliament.”

Mark Speakman

Attorney General

“Katherine is a strong advocate for issues that matter to local businesses. She is also very interested in clean harbour beaches and the protection of our unique local heritage.”

Peter M. Cavanagh

Mayor of Woollahra

“Katherine O’Regan has had a long-term commitment to the Liberal Party and understands the need for the party to accommodate what John Howard has referred to as the liberal and conservative traditions in the party founded by Robert Menzies. I believe that Katherine O’Regan would make an excellent Liberal Party candidate for Wentworth.”

Gerard Henderson

Executive Director, The Sydney Institute

“Katherine is a loyal member of the party who has made a difference in her community and more broadly, she has excellent credentials to make a difference in the Federal Parliament. Wentworth has a proud tradition of strong local members, Katherine would add to that tradition.”

The Hon Patricia Forsyth

Executive Director, Sydney Business Chamber

“I would fully support Katherine as our local candidate. She provides a strong voice for the local community and knows how to deliver results. She would make a great leader who understands our community and has a solid, stable and sensible approach to policy matters. Her consistency and proven performance would be invaluable in this role and would be an asset to the Liberal Party.”
