Treasurer Jackie Trad

The Honourable Jackie Trad MP

Hon Jackie Trad MP is the Member for South Brisbane and Deputy Premier, Treasurer and Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships.

Ms Trad was elected to the Queensland Parliament in April 2012.

With a Bachelor of Arts from Griffith University and a Masters of Public Policy from the University of Sydney, Jackie has always been interested in how public policy shapes and forms our cities, our communities and ultimately our lives.

The influences of economics and politics on public decision-making and policy development, together with a genuine love of her community, drew her to a career in politics.

A second generation Lebanese migrant who grew up in a small business family on the inner-Southside of Brisbane, Ms Trad and her husband live in West End where they are raising their two young sons.

Minister Glenn Butcher MP

Mr Glenn Butcher MP

Glenn Butcher MP is the Member for Gladstone and Assistant Minister for Treasury.

Mr Butcher was elected to the Queensland Parliament in January 2015 and served as Assistant Minister for Local Government, Transport and Infrastructure prior to being appointed as Assistant Minister for Treasury in December 2017.

Before his election, he was maintenance superintendent at Queensland Alumina Limited overseeing a team of more than 100 and an $85 million budget. This mechanical engineering background has helped to shape his policy interests, which include infrastructure, investment, energy and planning.

Glenn and wife Theresa have two children. Born in Gladstone, he is a “mad keen” sports fan, particularly rugby league, and was president of Gladstone Rugby League from 2010 to 2015. He is also an advocate for women’s sport, and was instrumental in establishing women’s rugby league in Gladstone.
