Council margin – LNP 1.7%
Mayoral margin – LNP 6.0%
Adam Allan, since 2016.
Northern Brisbane. Northgate covers the suburbs of Nudgee, Banyo, Northgate and Wavell Heights.
Northgate shrunk slightly, losing part of Chermside to Marchant. This did not change the ward’s margin.
Labor’s Kim Flesser held Northgate from 1997 until 2016.
Flesser managed 59.5% of the primary vote in 2000, but his margin was cut to 5.9% in 2004.
In 2008, Flesser’s margin was cut even further to 1.6%. In 2012, Flesser managed to keep the anti-Labor swing to a slim 1.2% and hold on with an extremely slim margin.
Flesser retired in 2016, and a 2% swing gave victory to the LNP’s Adam Allan.
Northgate is the most marginal ward in the city and Labor would be hoping to win it back, although Allan will likely benefit from a new personal vote.
