Jonty Bush will be a voice to make our community an even better place to live and work.
Jonty is a mum and step-mother to four beautiful daughters, and with her partner runs a small business. Jonty is a weekly barefoot runner in our local Parkrun.
For the past decade, following the homicides of her father and nineteen-year-old sister, Jonty has advocated for the rights of victims of violent crime.
In 2009, she was recognised nationally as the Young Australian of the Year, when she developed Queensland's One Punch Can Kill campaign.
Jonty has a Bachelor of Business Management and a Masters in Criminology and Criminal Justice. She became CEO of a statewide victim support group, worked on Ministerial taskforces, was appointed to Queensland’s inaugural Sentencing Advisory Council and has continued to work and support government and community organisations with anti-violence and crime prevention strategies.
Jonty will put our community first by making sure that our local schools are world-class, our sports clubs get their fair share and strong infrastructure investment continues in our area. As we begin economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, Jonty will be our community’s strong voice within the Palaszczuk Government, making sure that we have a seat at the table.
Jonty is proud to represent our community and will work hard every day to win your support.
