Delivering for Bundaberg

Working for our Future

A Better Future for
Our Community

I love our community and I’m passionate about serving it. My job is not just to represent the Bundaberg Electorate in the Queensland Parliament – it’s to work with our community to get the best outcomes for our schools, our small businesses, local groups and families. Every day, my focus is on working towards a better future for everyone in our community.

Meet Tom

Hi, I’m Tom Smith MP

As many of you know, I’m passionate about delivering for Bundy and standing up for our local community with decision makers in Brisbane.

I’m especially focused on our local healthcare services – including the construction of the new $1.2b Bundaberg Hospital and a new urgent care clinic in town to take pressure off our Emergency Department. 

I’ve also supported our local GPs in their efforts to lift bulk billing payments for children concession card holders. Nothing is more important than making sure locals can access affordable, quality healthcare.

More About Tom

Before entering politics, I was a high-school teacher and making sure that local kids can access a world class education is another passion of mine.

I’ll always be a strong supporter of local workers – our teachers, nurses, tradies, retail and hospitality workers and everyone else who keeps our society functioning – especially when it comes to fair wages and conditions.

But I’ve also worked hard to support our local small businesses, seniors groups, community organisations, and everyone else who makes up our wonderful Bundaberg community.

I’ve worked hard to deliver for our community since 2020, but there’s still a lot more to be done – I’m focused on delivering a better future for Bundy.
