Biography

Julian Simmonds, grew up in the western suburbs and lives there with his wife Madeline and baby son Theodore. As a young family, they understand the challenges faced by local families in the area.

The community of Ryan has a liveability that the locals not only cherish but fight for. Working hard to ensure we protect our local way of life is what drives Julian Simonds to serve his community.

Julian grew up in a small-business family and knows there is no substitute for hard work. He witnessed first-hand the sacrifices and dedication it takes to make small business succeed. He will stand up for the almost 18,000 small businesses in Ryan and for policies that support aspiration, not hinder it.

Julian completed a Masters of Journalism from the University of Queensland. He was elected for the Ward of Walter Taylor in the Brisbane City Council in 2010.

As a Councillor, Julian has worked to deliver new road infrastructure; create new parks; start new community organisations and strengthen planning requirements to protect the character of our suburbs.

Julian’s local plan includes improving roads to ease traffic congestion so people can spend less time driving and more time at home with their families. He will fight to protect the unique quality of life locals cherish.

As part of the Liberal National Party, he will work to build a stronger economy and deliver tax relief, to help local small business and workers keep more of what they earn.

Yet again, Anthony Albanese is trying to have it each way on an important issue.

We've asked so much of Australians over these many months, particularly of Victorians. And now we're asking even more. If you've got friends in Victoria, let them know you're there for them and offer whatever support you can. Today the Federal Government announced a new Pandemic Leave Disaster Payment. There should be no reason for Victorians to go to work if they need to isolate because they have tested positive or been in close contact with someone who has tested positive. This new payment is for those who have exhausted their sick leave, and it will be $1,500 a fortnight. It will be available to those who are not permanent residents or citizens of Australia and can be accessed multiple times, if needed. We know we have to help Victoria push through because Australia's future depends on these weeks and months ahead.

We will get through this, Victoria.‬ ‪Every Victorian is on the front-line in this battle & we can’t afford any holes in our defences. We all need to follow the rules.‬ ‪Please stay safe. Please stay strong. Please look after one another.
