David Littleproud was elected to the House of Representatives for Maranoa, Queensland, in 2016.
I was born and raised in Chinchilla and have three boys: Tom, Hugh and Harry. I was educated at Chinchilla State High School before finishing secondary education at Toowoomba Grammar School.
Over the past 20 years, I’ve owned a small business in Warwick and forged a career in agribusiness while living and working in towns such as Miles, Nanango, Charleville, St George, Stanthorpe and Warwick.
This background provides me with an acute understanding of the important role small business and agriculture plays in creating jobs and promoting economic growth in Maranoa. I understand the importance of economic development as a means of building a prosperous future for younger generations and developing the capacity of health, education, agriculture, telecommunications and small business sectors.
