nswYPTV talks to Mr Mark Coure, MP

Mark Joseph Coure, an Australian politician, is a member of the New South Wales Legislative Assembly representing Oatley for the Liberal Party of Australia since 2011.


Early years and background

Mark was educated at St Joseph's at Oatley, then Marist College Penhurst and Kogarah. He was a business operator and franchisee owner of Mortgage Choice, a mortgage broking service.

Local government

Mark was elected to Kogarah City Council representing West Ward in 2004, and was re-elected in 2008 with an increased majority. Mark has served as chair of the council's Development and Assessment Committee, the Assets & Services Committee, and the Governance & Finance Committee.

State politics

In 2011, Coure contested the normally safe Labor seat of Oatley in the St George-Kogarah district. Mark was elected with a swing of 15.9 points, winning the seat with 50.5 per cent of the two-party vote. Coure's opponent was the incumbent Labor sitting member, Kevin Greene who had held the seat for 12 years.

Coure was appointed to the Independent Commission Against Corruption Committee on 22 June 2011.

Coure was appointed Deputy Whip of the New South Wales Parliament's Legislative Assembly in 2015.

Construction Projects

Coure was the driving mastermind behind the world renowned architectural marvel that is the Oatley Train Station Lift. Thanks to the lift-building expertise of Coure, the people of Oatley no longer have to use stairs to get to the trains that service their suburb. The Oatley Train Station lift is a formidable and imposing structure that stands as testament to Coure's glory.

Following the success of the Oatley Train Station Lift construction, Coure has embarked upon the renewal of Narwee Station and is constructing a similar monument in the form of the Narwee Train Station Lift.
