Townsville Bulletin - - North Queensland's 50 Most Powerful People -

For­mer auc­tion­eer, now the Lib­eral fed­eral Mem­ber for Her­bert. Still very much a po­lit­i­cal novice, Mr Jones is a like­able char­ac­ter who has al­ready in­curred the wrath of Speaker Harry Jenk­ins for his bois­ter­ous be­hav­iour in the House. As Townsville’s key rep­re­sen­ta­tive in Can­berra, he not only has in­flu­ence but the hopes of a lot of peo­ple that he will de­liver for the re­gion. Our next top 50 list will de­ter­mine whether he’s been ef­fec­tive or not.
