Council margin – ALP 0.3%
Mayoral margin – LNP 4.8%
Lisa Atwood (LNP), since 2019. Lisa Atwood replaced Ryan Murphy as councillor for Doboy in June 2019.
Eastern Brisbane. Doboy covers suburbs to the east of the Brisbane CBD, including Murarrie, Tingalpa and Carina.
Doboy shifted to the west, taking in territory from Morningside and losing Wakerley to Chandler. These changes flipped the ward from a marginal LNP ward with a 4.3% margin to a very marginal ALP ward with a 0.3% margin.
Labor’s John Campbell held Doboy for approximately thirty years from the early 1980s until 2012. Campbell served as opposition leader from 1990 to 1991 and as deputy mayor from 1991 to 1997.
Doboy had become quite marginal in the 2000s, with Campbell’s margin cut to 5% in 2004 and 1% in 2008.
In 2012, a 5.5% swing to the Liberal National Party saw Campbell lose to LNP candidate Ryan Murphy.
Murphy was re-elected despite a tiny swing to Labor in 2016. In 2019, Murphy switched to the neighbouring safe LNP ward of Chandler to replace new lord mayor Adrian Schrinner, and his seat in Doboy was filled by the LNP’s Lisa Atwood.
Doboy is the most marginal ward in Brisbane. Murphy’s departure and the redistribution should improve Labor’s chances of winning here.
