Greg-Ian-Dowling

Greg is a proud Townsville local who, with his wife Rhonda, runs a local retail food outlet. Greg and Rhonda are the proud parents of Lachlan and Lauren.

In an earlier career Greg was a rugby league player who cut his teeth playing in Townsville in the 1970’s before going on to represent Queensland in 11 State of Origin matches and playing 14 matches for Australia.

Greg had a reputation as one of the toughest players on the field and he now wants to fight for the people of Townsville.

As a small business owner Greg knows the challenges that face Townsville residents. Cost of living is going through the roof and governments at every level are doing nothing about it.

He has listened to his customers tell him that that they don’t feel safe in their homes.  He has listened to the stories of local jobs being given to people from Brisbane. And he has listened to others in business tell him that times have never been tougher.

It is these stories and countless other similar tales that have driven Greg to run for Townsville Mayor.

As Mayor, Greg will stand up and fight for the people of Townsville.
