Bryson Head elected Member for Callide

20th June 2022

Voters in Callide have opted for generational change with the convincing election of Bryson Head at today’s by-election.

Bryson was born on a farm in Callide and is an exploration geologist working in the mines.

He’s young, he’s hungry and he’s ready to advocate for a better future for his area.

Person after person told me their stories of being caught up in the Queensland Health Crisis, being a victim of youth crime or struggling with bad local roads. There’s a clear view the State Government has given up on integrity and given up on delivering the services they deserve.

When I became Leader of the Opposition, I committed to generational renewal for our party which included ensuring more young people were elected to Parliament.

At just 26 years old, Bryson Head becomes the youngest member of Parliament serving Queenslanders.

He has a future as bright as the diverse electorate he will represent.

The big two-party preferred swing towards the LNP shows the importance of choosing strong local candidates who are focused on issues that matter to Queenslanders.
