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.

Around 5 million Australians will start receiving our second $750 support payment from today, including pensioners. And millions of Australians are set to benefit again from the important tax cuts we legislated last year, getting up to $1,080 back in their tax returns. It’s all part of our record financial support to help get Australians through these difficult times. Over the weekend, I also agreed to providing more Australian Defence Force support to the Victorian Government to help deal with the COVID outbreak in Melbourne. We’ll continue to provide whatever support is needed to make sure we all get through this together.
