Who is Paul Branagan
My name is Paul Branagan, and I am asking for your help to bring about the change we need here in
Capalaba, and in Qld as a whole.
With an Honours Degree in Government, I currently work as a Consultant for both a national Merger
& Acquisition company and for a local Real Estate company here in the Redlands. Previously I
have held senior commercial roles both in Australia and overseas.
In addition I have had significant exposure working with the community sector, particularly
through my involvement in the award-winning homeless charity The Big Issue and through my work
with local Bayside causes such as the Redlands Annual Charity Day, for which I was immensely
proud to have been nominated as 2018 Redlands Citizen of the Year. It is when you work at the
grass roots level in this great community of ours that you understand what is really needed, and
people get to see what you actually do, not just hear empty promises.
With my wife and daughter I have been fortunate to live in this wonderful part of the world for
nearly 18 years. My family and I regularly attend Mary Mackillop Catholic Church, school
functions (where I have served as President of Mary Mackillop School P and F Committee) and
other local community events. I am also involved in local sporting clubs such as the Capalaba
Bulldogs Football Club and am a member of Capalaba Sports Club and the Redlands Chamber of
A Balanced Independent
It's time to vote for a balanced independent that will deliver better representation for
We are blessed to live in such a wonderful place, but we need to fight to get more local jobs,
more local infrastructure, and more local opportunities for everybody.
It’s what Capalaba deserves! It’s what you deserve!
Make your vote count
I believe that with respect for many Australian political parties at an all-time low, a fresh
approach is needed. One focused on respecting all voters and on achieving for Capalaba the
investment it deserves.
I am not a ‘career politician’, but as a father, a husband and a member of the small business
community I appreciate exactly what is required, and I believe I have the experience to help
this area achieve greater things.
