National Party leader Brendon Grylls, and his wife Susan, recently welcomed their son Jack. Jack Grylls is their third child, and has a big brother named Oliver.
Brendon is the Leader of the National Party of Western Australia, Minister of Regional Development and Minister for Lands. He entered politics in 2001 as the Minister for the seat of Merredin, and became the Member for Central Wheatbelt in 2008. He is credited with saving the National Party from oblivion in 2005, and also began the $1 billion-a-year Royalties for Regions program, which provides funding for regional development. Brendon considered retiring from politics, but with Susan’s encouragement, he is currently contesting the traditionally Labor seat of Pilbara.
Susan and Brendon have been together since they met at university fifteen years ago.
