Robert Leslie (Bob) Graham (born 19 May 1943) is an Australian politician. He was a Liberal Party of Australia member of the New South Wales Legislative Assembly from 1988 to 1991, representing the electorate of The Entrance. He later served as mayor of the Wyong Shire from 2005 to 2007, 2008 to 2010, and 2011 to 2012.[1] [2]

Graham was elected to the Legislative Assembly at the 1988 state election, and ran for re-election at the 1991 election. He initially appeared to have won reelection over Labor challenger Grant McBride by 116 votes.[3] However, due to the late completion of the 1991 redistribution, hundreds of voters received absentee ballots for Gosford. As a result, the Court of Disputed Returns ordered a by-election for 1992, which was won by McBride.[4]
