Contact James Martin MP


James Martin is a long-term local with a passion for his community, James lives on the southside with his wife Stella and son Ollie. Growing up in Acacia Ridge, where his parents Bob and Lesley still live today.

James has worked closely with Duncan Pegg MP since he was first elected to Parliament.  Representing community members and organisations - helping them get the assistance and representation they deserve.

Duncan’s hard work and commitment to his community is well known in our local area and James has been there every step of the way. Fighting for quality schools, health care, better roads, and public transport.

With the challenges our community and Queensland now face as a result of COVID-19, James knows that it is more important than ever that we continue the work of Duncan Pegg, supporting Annastacia Palaszczuk and the Labor team. Protecting Queenslanders and kick starting the Queensland economy.

Unlike the divided LNP, James and Labor are united in their plan to invest in Queensland and Queenslanders, creating jobs and future proofing our state.  

Having worked with Duncan side-by-side since he was first elected in 2015, James understands the needs of our community. James worked as an Industrial Advocate and Union Organiser supporting working people. 

With a Masters Degree in Governance & Public Policy from the University of Queensland, James is committed to the advancement of multicultural principles in our local area so that service delivery and policy meet the needs of our culturally and linguistically diverse communities
