“There is no greater honour than to serve the people of Aspley as their elected State representative. Aspley has been my home for many years and I cannot think of a better place to live, to raise a family or to retire than in this electorate. I look forward to working hard as the local member for you, your family and our community”

Tracy was first elected to the Queensland Parliament on 21 March 2009.

Prior to this, Tracy commenced her working life in her family’s small business specialising in home improvements and hardware, where she ultimately held the position of General Manager of their four retail outlets. In 1995, Tracy co-established a kitchen design and manufacturing company on the north-side of Brisbane which still operates today.

From April 2011 to March 2012, Tracy served as Shadow Minister for Child Safety, Disability Services and Mental Health. Following the March 2012 election, Tracy was appointed Minister for Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services in the LNP Government.

During this time, Tracy pursued a wide range of social, regional and Indigenous issues and was responsible for a significant reform agenda in her portfolio to improve outcomes for vulnerable Queenslanders.

Tracy worked tirelessly to ready Queensland for the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and committed her time to ensuring people with a disability were provided choice and control in their lives. Tracy also led the most comprehensive reform of the Queensland Child Protection System to strengthen families and protect children. It was during Tracy’s time as Minister that the Taskforce into domestic and family violence was established to address this insidious crime.

Tracy is passionate about women’s participation and connectedness to community. She has an ongoing commitment to encouraging women’s political participation at organisational and parliamentary levels, having held the position of Vice-President of Liberal Women’s Council QLD, and until her election to Parliament was the Policy Chairman of LNP Women.

Aspley has been Tracy’s family home for many years and she sees the electorate as offering a good balance between a safe suburban location to live and reasonable proximity to the CBD. She understands the importance of building strong, healthy communities for people of every age and ability and, as a businesswoman, the need to support local business and job creation.

Tracy also understands the importance of listening and the need to place a greater emphasis on the lifestyle of people who live in the suburbs within the electorate. At her core is Tracy’s commitment to value locals, listen to locals and act for locals for a better future.
