Some lines about Michael Gunner:

Michael Gunner is Chief Minister of the Northern Territory and Member for Fannie Bay in the NT Legislative Assembly.
He is a fourth generation Territorian whose family have lived and worked here since the 1930’s.
Michael was born in Alice Springs and did his junior schooling there and in Tennant Creek. He attended high school in Darwin and completed a Bachelor of Arts degree at the Northern Territory University.
His personal values were shaped growing up in a family that earned its living from running small local businesses (including newsagencies and removalists) and on the land (including stock work and mining). His family has worked and lived throughout the Territory.
Like many Territorians Michael loves sport. He has represented the Territory in Rugby Union and at various times has played cricket for PINTS, and soccer for the Verdi Club in Alice Springs. Occasionally and as time permits, he still turns out for Waratahs Hockey Club.

Michael was first elected to the Northern Territory Legislative Assembly in August 2008, following the retirement of former Chief Minister Clare Martin.His experience serving in Government from 2008 to 2012, as the Member for Fannie Bay, helped him develop a deep understanding of how Government works.He was elected Leader of the Northern Territory Branch of the Australian Labor Party on 23 April 2015.As Labor leader, Michael’s key approach is to seek a rational balance to policy development. This approach is also based on applying principles of social equity.
