There’s no question Townsville is facing the biggest challenge of a generation. The coronavirus has affected every single one of us in some way.

We’ve been extremely fortunate here in the North to have avoided a major outbreak of COVID-19. That’s thanks to the amazing work of all of us adhering to the restrictions and practising social distancing. I’d like to pay tribute to our incredible health professionals and frontline workers who have risked their lives every day to keep us safe and healthy.

Of course with the restrictions has come major economic heartache only a year after our devastating natural disaster. While JobKeeper and JobSeeker have been a godsend for many businesses the effects of the closures have been felt extremely hard.

I will continue to advocate every day for the people of Townsville. I won’t stop fighting to see our restrictions eased as quickly as possible – in line with the health advice – to see our economy reopened.

As your Federal Member I will be with you throughout the recovery and am always here to help. If there’s ever anything I can do, please don’t hesitate to get in touch on the phone, on Facebook or by email.

While you’re here, please take a minute to have your say, and let me know what’s important to you and your family.

HONOUR & A PRIVILEGE: Tonight I was endorsed unopposed as the LNP - Liberal National Party candidate for Herbert.

I can’t thank our grassroots volunteers enough, along with the general community, for the continued faith & trust they put in me. It is an honour that I will not take for granted for a moment.

Great achievement . Keep up we are behind you

Phillip Thompson OAM MP - Fighting For Townsville Thanks for your encouragement and support. Many have never heard of the centuries of systematic occupation and genocide. Words that are today thrown around far too often. In a time of irregular discussion on quotas, it's people like you who reflect the real diversity present in the Liberal Party.

Interesting to think they were ruled bye the Turks for around 400 years. I would never have bothered to read about it except your article thanks.
