Terrence Keith Waldron (aka "Terry" or "Tuck") was born on 17 February 1951 in Subiaco, Australia. He has been a Nationals member of the Western Australian Legislative Assembly since February 2001, representing the electorate of Wagin, and is the deputy leader of the National Party of Western Australia.[1]

Waldron grew up on his family farm in Jingalup near Kojonup and attended the local primary school before going to boarding school at Hale School in Perth[2]

After completing his high school education Waldron briefly returned to the family farm for a year before moving back to Perth to work in the insurance industry and further his football and cricket career. He played 29 games for the Claremont Football Club in the Western Australian National Football League (WANFL), and later 17 games for the South Adelaide Football Club in the South Australian National Football League (SANFL).[3] He then returned to Kojonup in 1975 and worked in real estate, eventually managing the regional branch of Elders. In 1992 he was appointed the general manager of the West Australian Country Football League and continued in that position until entering politics.[4]

Following the retirement of Bob Weise, Waldron won preselection by the National party for the seat of Wagin. In the following election in 2001 Waldron won the seat with a margin of 26%.[5] Waldron was re-elected in the 2005 election by a margin of 19%.[6]

He is married to Noelene Waldron and they have four children; Jemma, Kelly, Bonnie and Jessica.
