Corrine McMillan, since 2017.
Brisbane. Mansfield covers southeastern parts of the City of Brisbane and small parts of Redland City. Mansfield covers the suburbs of Mansfield, Wishart, Upper Mount Gravatt and Mackenzie, and parts of Mount Gravatt and Mount Gravatt East.
The seat of Mansfield has existed since 1972. Conservative MPs held the seat from 1972 until 1989, and apart from two terms the ALP has held it since 1989.
Bill Kaus held the seat from 1972 to 1986. He originally sat as a Liberal, but switched to the National Party in 1983, at the election when the coalition was dissolved and the Nationals decimated the ranks of the Liberal Party in Parliament.
He was succeeded in 1986 by Craig Sherrin, also a National Party MP. Sherrin was defeated in 1989 by ALP candidate Laurel Power.
Power lost in 1995 to Frank Carroll of the Liberal Party. He was defeated in 1998 by Phil Reeves. Reeves was re-elected in 2001, 2004 and 2009, and was promoted to the Bligh government’s ministry after the 2009 election.
In 2012, Labor MP Phil Reeves was defeated by Liberal National candidate Ian Walker. Walker served as a minister in the LNP government from 2013 until 2015. Walker was narrowly re-elected in 2015.
Walker lost to Labor’s Corrine McMillan in 2017.
