Brendon was elected to represent the electorate of Merredin at a by-election in 2001. He became the Leader of The Nationals WA in 2005 and immediately set about charting a new course for the Party.

Under his leadership The Nationals WA forged a new path as an independent political party. In 2008, the party gained the balance of power in both Houses of Parliament on behalf of regional Western Australians and implemented Royalties for Regions.

In 2013, Brendon contested the North West seat of Pilbara, with a plan to increase State Parliament’s focus on the north of the State. At the 2013 State election, The Nationals WA increased their representation in the Parliament to 12, a level not seen since 1971 and won the balance of power in the Legislative Council.

Brendon announced his resignation from his second term as Minister for Regional Development and Lands in November 2013. During his tenure of the portfolio he was responsible for the iconic Royalties for Regions funding and remains a passionate advocate for making regional Western Australia a better place to live, work and invest.

Despite also stepping down as leader of The Nationals WA in November 2013, Brendon remains committed to ensuring Royalties for Regions can continue to deliver for regional Western Australians, and his shift to contest the seat of Pilbara is central to this. The Pilbara is an economic powerhouse of the state and Brendon wants to make sure they have a strong advocate to ensure housing, services and amenities can keep pace with growth in the region.

He has spent vast amounts of time in the Pilbara and has a strong history of delivery, which has given him a strong rapport with local communities. True to his word, Brendon moved to live in the electorate with his family, residing in Karratha.

In mid-2016, Brendon returned to lead the Party to the 2017 State election, identifying a need to change the course of political discussion in Western Australia. He also became Minister for Housing; Racing and Gaming

Brendon is married to Susan and they have three sons, Thomas, Oliver and Jack.
