Biography

George serves the Dawson electorate in North Queensland which stretches north up the coast from Mackay through to the southern suburbs of Townsville.

He is a fearless advocate for Australian values and culture. He stands up for his region and fights for local jobs.

George is the eldest son of a third-generation cane farming family and he has lived in Mackay all his life. As both his parents were disability pensioners, he developed a strong sense of social justice, and joined the Young Nationals at the age of 15, where he went on to become state president.

With a degree in journalism and practical experience at a community newspaper in Mackay under his belt, George went on to found his own successful publishing business which produced two other community newspapers for the Walkerston and Northern Beaches communities.

He spent six years as a councillor, firstly on the Mackay City Council, and then the Mackay Regional Council following amalgamation, where he developed a reputation as a man who would fight for a fairer outcome for ratepayers.

All Australians have a role to play to defeat coronavirus and we do that by slowing down its spread. Every, single Australian needs to do their part - practice social distancing - that’s staying 1.5m away from each other - good hand hygiene, and if you feel even slightly sick or have the sniffles, please stay home and isolate yourself from other people. By sticking together and supporting each other, we will get through this, we will protect and save lives, and we will bounce back stronger on the other side.
