Bryan Michael Doyle MP, an Australian politician, is a member of the New South Wales Legislative Assembly representing Campbelltown for the Liberal Party of Australia since 2011.[1]

Early years and background[edit]

With family links to Australia's convict history, Doyle is the son of a magistrate and joined the NSW Police Force in 1983. After spending three years at Broken Hill, Doyle returned to Sydney and in 2005 was stationed at Campbelltown where he later became the chief inspector of police for the area.[2][3]

Political career[edit]

In 2011, Doyle contested the normally safe Labor seat of Campbelltown in Sydney's south-western suburbs. Doyle was elected with a swing of 20.5 points and won the seat with 53.4 per cent of the two-party vote.[4] Doyle's opponent was Nick Bleasdale, representing Labor. Graham West who was the previous Labor sitting member had earlier announced his retirement from politics after holding the seat for 10 years.[4][5]
