I’ve been so proud to represent you as your local Federal MP as we’ve worked together through the challenges of the last couple of years. We’ve emerged stronger and more resilient as we’ve dealt with the pandemic, with local business confidence at its highest in 14 years and hundreds of jobs on offer.

The most recent budget is going to go a long way to see that growth and recovery continue with the support of more tax cuts, lower insurance premiums and huge investments in disaster recovery and resilience.

We’re also supporting Defence members, veterans and their families with a Royal Commission into Defence and Veteran Suicides, and nearly half a billion dollars for the Department of Veterans Affairs to help them look after our people better.

As your Federal Member I 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.

PORT PROGRESS: Today the largest backhoe dredge in the country arrived to start the 2-year process of widening the Port of Townsville Limited channel. Our $75m investment will allow ships up to 26% longer into our port to drive the economy into the future, while putting food on the table for the more than 1400 people employed on the project during construction. #DeliveringForYou ...

And where will the silt end up? Port of Townsville’s EIS is at odds with an impartial JCU current analysis from the 1980s. I think the fringing reef around Magnetic Island is about to take a hit.

I would rather see and read about things like this instead of watch millions of dollars go up into the sky with a bang on New Years night and Australia Day……..it just makes sense!

Refreshing to see you not wearing the hi-vis vest and helmet Labor politicians always wear to make themselves feel relevant.

You still claiming Aaron Harper MP’s ‘achievements’ Phillip 🤷🏻‍♂️😜🙊😂

Didn't they refuse to dredge it in the past due to marine life etc?

While they are here get em to drag some mud out of port hinchinbrook.

A great opportunity for more employment.

Hope they hide the keys for that dredge

Great job Phillip Thompson OAM MP - Serving Our Community good to see positive progress in our beautiful city.

Good work brother.

I hope the Townsville Council are not involved Other wise your $ 75 million project will sky rocket to $150 million real quick. That's based on the burdekin pipeline project Witch was a disaster

Have the dolphins been taken into account Phillip Thompson OAM MP - Serving Our Community?

Nice 👍. Phillip Does anyone know what repercussions for Dugongs. South to alligator creek and north to palleranda including kissing point are sea grass fields. Have a M8 that kayak fishes near kissing point see them heaps of time. All for jobs

Why don't we get a say anymore? We're supposed to be protecting the GBR. We also have a Chinese Hydrogen plant going in which is why this contraption is so important. You people are paid to represent the people and lands, your not doing either. How can anyone vote for these people ever again.

will this allow for any cargo ships in the world today to be able to dock in Townsville? and if not should we do it while the machine is here?

Townsville is flying!
