He served as an alderman on Toowoomba City Council from 1973 to 1982, serving as Toowoomba's 61st Mayor from 1982 to 1992. He was National Party MLA for Toowoomba South (1986–1991). On 23 March 1991 he was forced to vacate his seat in the Queensland Legislative Assembly, in order to retain his position as mayor after changes to the relevant legislation. National Party candidate Mike Horan won the resulting by-election on 18 May.
He has made donations to CareFlight (now LifeFlight), a Queensland aero-medical charity. As a result, his name appears on some of their rescue helicopters. He also donated $10 million in 2001 and $50 million in 2013 to the Queensland Institute of Medical Research. As a result, the QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute is named in his honour.
