David Crisafulli has devoted his working life to achieving a better deal for Queenslanders.
As the son of sugarcane farmers and small business owners from Ingham in North Queensland, David saw early on the value of farming and private enterprise. This gave him a passion for service to our community.
Following a career in journalism, David served as a local councillor and Deputy Mayor for nearly 8 years. He was elected to the Queensland Parliament and served as Minister for Local Government, Community Recovery and Resilience until 2015.
As a Minister, David undertook the biggest reform to local government in a generation by empowering local leaders, as well as overhauling the way Queenslanders rebuild after natural disasters.
Following the 2015 State election, David established a small business providing media and government strategy and relocated his family to the northern Gold Coast.
David was again elected to the Queensland Parliament as the member for Broadwater in 2017. David is a Rotary Paul Harris Fellow and is heavily involved in local sporting, school and charity causes.
