About Anthony

I live in Murarrie with my wife Jane and our two sons. I grew up in the Southside suburb of Rochedale and attended QUT, graduating in 1988 with a degree in Medical Laboratory Science.

That set me on a path road for a career in pharmaceutical research, where I’ve gained experience as a scientist, project manager and sales in large Australian and international companies and a project director and CEO of small pharma and diagnostic research startups in Brisbane, Melbourne, Singapore and Malaysia.

My diverse life and work experience have broadened my understanding of the world. I hope that with this experience I can make a difference, especially in developing Queensland’s fantastic medical research.

I joined the LNP because their values – freedom of conscience; a government that doesn’t unfairly burden future generations; family where children are nurtured; and a sustainable environment – are aligned to my personal values.

Family is especially important to me, and the basis of our community. I am committed to supporting and strengthening families so that the wellbeing and best interests of our children are prioritised.


Why I’m running:

(1) Queensland is being poorly managed by Labor. Even before Covid we had the highest unemployment, bankruptcies and lowest business confidence. The outcomes for us in health, crime and education continue to worsen, despite record spending in every area. There are so many issues that need fixing and we can’t trust Labor to get us out the other side. We need people with a broad range of real-world experiences if we are to get Queensland working for all Queenslanders.

(2) Queensland has 10,000 children in Child Safety. With 7,000 in long-term government care, you’d expect that most would be secure in permanent families. But it’s the opposite. Only a handful are able to achieve permanency in a family through adoption or guardianship. I was adopted and also adopted our son. My experience is that adoption can lead to positive outcomes for children and society by building loving families. The LNP has a principled policy in this area – we need a system-wide overhaul to avoid seeing more cases like Mason Jet Lee and Willow Dunn. Again, we can’t trust Labor to fix the system.

When you come to vote, think about who you trust to make sure we get Queensland working again.

With your support, Deb Frecklington and I will get Queensland working again.

Senator Amanda Stoker and Anthony Bishop talk through the LNPs plan for Child Safety in Queensland. We need:
- An overhaul of the Department of Child Safety
- Dedicated child protection officers for 24/7 support
- A new team of Queensland Police investigators to clear backlogs
- Increased help for foster careers and extend support for children up to 21 years
- Adoption to be an option for the 7,000 children on long term orders
- Support parents with more drug rehab centres

We need to change the government to help these kids.

When I spoke to Senator Gerard Rennick the other day, he thought this was one of Labor's great failures. Confirmed by the docs across Queensland. Labor doesn't care about anything outside the south-east corner of Queensland. The voters of Bulimba should!Queensland Mums and Bubs deserve world-class healthcare no matter where they live.

Recently members of my own family had to travel to Townsville from western Queensland to access maternity services, we know these services are vital to the future of regional Queenslanders health and health of their economies.

Labor always forgets the bush.

Labor should focus more on rural maternity services and less on hypocrisy and cheap political games based on upcoming election.
