Brett McGuire is Labor’s candidate for Kennedy. Born in Townsville and raised in Julia Creek, Brett has lived his entire life in North Queensland.
Brett’s career includes working for Ergon Energy, a commercial pilot flying crop dusters and currently works in an underground coal mine as an electrician.
Together with his wife Sarah, they raise their two children in Charters Towers and enjoy the strong sense of community in the area.
When it comes to insecure jobs, Brett has seen firsthand the damage Scott Morrison and the LNP have done to regional communities.
For too long, workers and families have been putting up with dodgy labour hire practices and cuts to penalty rates.
It’s Brett’s priority to fight for secure jobs, better funding for local schools and hospitals and more funding for our roads in regional Queensland.
