Your Local Left Team in Petrie

I am nominating as a Petrie Delegate because I believe that I have the experience, determination, and compassion to be a strong voice for our community.

Petrie is home to me – I grew up in Deception Bay, graduated Redcliffe State High School as the 2014 Senior DUX and currently live in Mango Hill studying a Bachelor of Laws and Justice.

I have been an active local community member and have volunteered in crucial community organisations like Deception Bay Neighbourhood Centre, Headspace Redcliffe and the Black Dog Institute.

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, I worked in the Bancroft Electorate Office and supported the community in a practical way through listening and taking action on issues that matter to our constituents. I currently work in the Attorney-General’s office as an advisor where I continue to do work that advocates for vulnerable Queenslanders.

I am dedicated to listening and supporting our local branch members and ensuring that Petrie has a strong voice within the party.

I’m asking for your vote because I’ll work hard to keep the Labor Party on its progressive course and delivering for Queenslanders. You deserve a progressive voice at State Conference, someone who listens to you and fights on your behalf for good progressive policy.

As the son of a midwife, I know how important good Labor governments are, especially when it comes to healthcare. We need a progressive party to drive good policy and hold the Government to account. I’ve represented branch members on the Murrumba SEC and the Petrie FEC and campaigned for our candidates.

For the last nine months I’ve worked for Albo, helping with the successful election campaign and bringing a decade of LNP rule to an end. Now I’m working hard to re-elect the Palaszczuk Government in 2024 and implement good, progressive policy so we can continue to have a government to be proud of. Our party is at a turning point, it’s never been more important that we embrace progressive policy and ensure Labor is the party of progressive government.

I’m asking for your support to be your local State Conference delegate.

I’ve lived in our community my whole life. I’m a father, a husband, a Social Worker in Child Protection, a proud union member, and a passionate Labor member. I will be a strong advocate on issues like climate change, creating affordable housing options, tackling corruption and keeping the cost of living under control.

We all love Moreton Bay and know that it’s a great place to live but it’s also a community where many of our locals are struggling. I’ve spent my life working with and listening to some of our communities most vulnerable. I know how to listen and how to care.

I’m a passionate believer in the power of democracy. I believe that our party is at its strongest when the everyday voices of branch members are heard loud and clear. I’m committed to taking the time to always listen to branch members and represent your voice within our party.

I’m asking for your support to continue my hard work as your State Conference delegate.

I’ve lived in our community my whole life. I’m a Scientist with a Physics degree and a Masters in Energy Studies, a proud union member and a passionate advocate on the big issues we face like creating secure local jobs, tackling climate change and fixing aged care.

We all know Moreton Bay is a wonderful place to live but it’s also one of Australia’s fastest growing regions which brings with it opportunities and challenges. We need strong, dedicated representation of branch members to make sure our party reflects what our growing community needs.

I spent this past Federal Election campaign working hard alongside many of you right here in Petrie and I’ve got a strong track record of hard work on our local, state, and federal campaigns.

I believe there is no substitute for the simple act of listening. I’ve spent time at each of our local branches in Petrie and I’m committed to taking the time to always listen to branch members and represent your voice within our party.

I’ve had the honour of representing Petrie previously as your State Conference delegate and bring to the role a proven track record of fighting for the best interests of Labor and the community. I’m asking for your support to continue to represent you.

After joining the Party and Deception Bay Branch in 2005, I have helped on every State and Federal campaign since then. Currently I am on the Moreton Bay RMA Executive, Bancroft Campaign Committee as Treasurer and am the Secretary of Deception Bay Branch. I’ve also served in the past as Branch President and Treasurer, as FEC delegate in Petrie and on the Longman FEC as the Treasurer.

I’ve always believed in social justice and Labor values of equality and workers’ rights. As your delegate, I have voted in past State Conferences for the democratisation of the Party, Dying with Dignity, LGBTI equality, anti-bullying programs in schools, having Senators based in Regional Queensland and many other progressive motions.

With your support I can continue in the role of Petrie State Conference delegate and take the ideas and motions put forward by members into our State Platform.
