William Lekkas


Why did you become involved in the union?
 I’ve got a passion for people’s rights. I come from a Greek background and big greek families debate and argue about everything!

What are your hobbies and interests?
 I used to have hobbies – now I have two boys and the hobbies are gone! But I really love being a dad. They are very sporty boys and I enjoy taking them to their football, wrestling, cricket and austag. I always seem to be picking them up or dropping them off somewhere.

Where do you live and why do you like it? I moved to Punchbowl when I got married and I love the area. I enjoy the multicultural feel, the food, the people – it’s just about God’s country! Everyone is welcome there. You can leave your car unlocked while you have dinner, people are really friendly.

Who would you like to have dinner with (dead or alive) and why?
 My wife. We don’t get much time together. But I’d have the kids there too. And I’d also invite Kahlil Gibran, the Lebanese poet who wrote ‘The Prophet’. His work is a hundred years old but still so relevant. It’s very spiritual, and he talks about the beauty of life and our relationships.
