Four take on Vaughan for Gregory

FOUR challengers will take on incumbent Vaughan Johnson for the Central Queensland based seat of Gregory, considered a safe LNP seat.

Mr Johnson, a former shadow minister, has held Gregory for 22 years.

He faces Labor's Jack O'Brien, 20, who has never visited the electorate and who, if successful, would be the first Labor representative since 1957.

Mr O'Brien has vowed to move to the electorate if he wins.

The other challengers are:

The Australian Party's Pauline Williams, who owns and runs the Spar convenience store at Rolleston. Ms Williams is a political newcomer and an active member of the community.

Blackall's Norman Weston who represents the Queensland Greens. He is a long-time party member, committed to protecting the Great Artesian Basin.

Independent Bruce Currie, a self-proclaimed "man of the land". Mr Currie has aired concerns about the lack of integrity in both state and federal politics.
