David John Bradbury (born 28 February 1976 in Sydney) was an Australian politician. He was a Labor member of the Australian House of Representatives, representing the Division of Lindsay, in New South Wales, from 2007 until 2013.[1] Bradbury was the Minister for Competition Policy and Consumer Affairs, Assistant Treasurer, Minister Assisting for Financial Services and Superannuation, and Minister Assisting for Deregulation.

Early life and education[edit]

Bradbury was educated at Patrician Brothers' College, Fairfield, and graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws with Honours. He subsequently undertook postgraduate studies in taxation law.

Career[edit]

Pre-political career[edit]

Bradbury was a Senior Associate practising in taxation with Blake Dawson. He also served as a councillor on Penrith City Council, including two terms as mayor of the city.

Political career[edit]

A member of the Labor Party, Bradbury was elected to the division of Lindsay — at the time, a Liberal-held seat – in the Australian House of Representatives at the 2007 election. He served as chair of the Caucus Economics Committee, as well as in the house economics, communications and joint public accounts committees. Bradbury was re-elected in the 2010 election and on 14 September 2010 was sworn in as Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasurer in the Second Gillard Ministry.[2]

On 5 March 2012, Bradbury was elevated to the role of Assistant Treasurer, and Minister Assisting for Deregulation in a cabinet reshuffle following the 2012 Labor party leadership spill a week earlier and the resignation of previous Assistant Treasurer Mark Arbib.[3]

Bradbury was defeated in his seat of Lindsay at the 2013 election, being defeated by Fiona Scott who he defeated in 2010, yet suffered swings against him of -5.16 in 2010 and -4.11% in 2013.

Personal life[edit]

Bradbury and his wife Kylie have four children. He and his family are practising Roman Catholics.
