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.

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.

It’s such a sad time

Your great grandfather would be extremely proud of you Phil if he was here today. You are a very honourable man as was your great grandfather.

My uncle taught the world champion Boyde xell and Max my uncle rubbed shoulders with Philip and Boyde regularly .max has some wonderful photos of him being him self and drove him on many occasions in Australia and England .The world has lost a good honest man yesterday thankfully the little strong lady is still standing .

Thank for my 70th birthday letter ..phill we have meet

You must be so proud Phillip

So you support a man who had private parties with Jimmy Saville? Hmmm no wonder you were so silent on speaking up about the 90 year suppression order on the pedos in parliament

What a load of nonsense. He was a rude, racist , philandering man.

Well said Philip! (Actually this is the house he lived in! Dad and I visited outside it yesterday ) Jay Dee

Proud of Phillip? Smack dealer in the fourties! How can anyone be proud?

I'm sad for Elizabeth, she has lost her sole mate and now has no one she can just sit and talk to and tell about her thoughts and problems.

Wow, that is awesome Phil about your Great Grandad. And yes, Vale Prince Phillip 💙
