Shane Hamilton

Candidate for Dawson

It's time for a fresh start for Dawson. Shane is a lifelong local, having grown up in Sarina and Mackay, and his family connections go back three generations.

As a Project Manager in Coal mining maintenance, Shane understands how vital our resources industry is for jobs and the region’s economy. Like many people in Dawson, Shane has worked hard with his wife Anita, a local schoolteacher, to build a life in our community with their three beautiful children.

Shane will be a strong voice for workers: fighting for secure jobs in our region and to end rampant casualisation in the mining industry and all industries. With Albo, Shane will bring back local manufacturing to Regional Queensland, to create strong industry with secure jobs for locals.

Scott Morrison has no plans to grow jobs for our region. George Christensen has failed to protect workers from casualisation, instead voting for laws making it harder for casuals to secure full-time work.

Shane understands that our aged-care system is broken, and our health care system in crisis. Morrison and the Liberals have failed to deliver. Shane will fight for our community, and our seniors, to get the care they deserve.

Shane will ensure families are given a fair go. Under Labor and Shane, more families will be able to access cheaper childcare.

The residents of Dawson need a worker in Canberra, who understand their needs first-hand and who will fight for jobs for Regional Queensland. It's time for a fresh start for Dawson. Shane Hamilton is on your side.
