Candidate for Whitsunday
Born and bred in regional Queensland, Tracey Cameron grew up in Moranbah, the eldest of five children and a proud coal miner’s daughter.
As a single Mum to her son Riley, and a small business owner of Everything Office & More in Proserpine, Tracey has a real understanding of the cost of living pressures that families and small businesses face.
Tracey has always believed in giving back to her community and this is reflected in her commitment to local organisations and events, including the Proserpine Nursing Home, the renowned Lake Proserpine Fishing Competition and the Whitsunday Suicide Prevention Network.
In July 2018, Tracey lost her brother to suicide. Through this experience, Tracey has been actively involved in fundraising for the Whitsunday Suicide Prevention Network. When it comes to mental health, Tracey knows how crucial accessible health care is for our region, and that only a Palaszczuk Labor government will invest in our health and education services.
Tracey also understands the damage an LNP government can do to communities like ours, through their track record of cutting funding from our health services and sacking frontline workers.
Not only is it Tracey’s top priority to ensure everyone has access to quality health care and family support services, she is committed to delivering jobs to our region, particularly in the Agricultural and Tourism industries, giving more local kids a chance to stay in the area with secure employment.
As a Justice of the Peace, a Mum and a proud member of the Whitsundays community, Tracey will stand up for us and make sure our region has the jobs, services and infrastructure we deserve.
