Trevor brings a common-sense approach and the experience of a small business owner to his role representing the people of Toowoomba North. Like countless residents across Toowoomba, Trevor’s life was once primarily focussed on running his successful local business whilst juggling the demands of an active family and community life on the Darling Downs.
Over the years, Trevor often met with politicians, including the former Senator, Barnaby Joyce to discuss issues impacting business owners and families in Toowoomba.
During one of these meetings, Barnaby challenged Trevor to make a political difference for his community by representing their needs in Queensland’s Parliament.
Trevor was elected as the Representative for Toowoomba North in March 2012 and is currently in his fourth term.
“I endeavour to use my time wisely – to help build a Queensland that future generations will be proud to call home.” – Maiden speech, 30 May 2012
If I were a wiser man, I would have married my wife Sue many years before I did. We have known each other since high school and never imagined we would spend our lives together raising four children. I chose Toowoomba over 30 years ago as the place to finish my education, start a business and raise my family.
My family and I continue to enjoy all the opportunities that the Toowoomba community has to offer.
Trevor understands the importance of strong regional voices in Parliament and that no matter the location or representation, a fair go is essential outside of the State’s capital.
Trevor has fought for and delivered many projects during in his time in Parliament, including the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing and The Highfields State Secondary College, Victoria Street Bridge and flood mitigation works.
The growth and composition of Toowoomba is drawing the need for more infrastructure. Trevor is working hard to deliver a new university hospital, a second connector road to Highfields and strong amenities, both social and sporting.
Trevor is focussed on ensuring that our growing region is catered for and that Toowoomba’s reputation as the best city in Australia to live and raise families is both future focussed and protected. If you have an issue you would like to discuss with Trevor, please contact the office to book an appointment.
I have proudly represented Toowoomba North since 2012, and I enjoy fighting and delivering for our wonderful, thriving community. Whether its freezing car rego to help with the cost of living or building roads and schools, it is hugely important that there is a strong local voice in Parliament representing the people of our region.
Toowoomba’s reputation as the best city in Australia to live and raise families is one that we need to both protect and grow.
A community is only as good as the willingness of its people to work towards a common goal. Going forward, our five priority areas are creating jobs, building stronger families, maintaining a safe and liveable community, building the roads and schools we need, and delivering a better government.
Please let me know what your priorities are for Toowoomba North, so we can continue to build a better Queensland together.
