Troy Murray has been selected as the Australian Labor Party candidate for Groom at the coming Federal Election.

ALP state secretary Anthony Chisholm said Labor had selected an excellent local candidate who is passionate about community service and delivering for the people of Groom.

"The Gillard Government's record on delivering for working Australians through tax cuts and spreading the benefits of the state's mining boom gives Troy Murray a solid platform to take to the electorate," Mr Chisholm said.

Mr Murray said the people of Groom had worked hard contributing to this country's strong economy, and they deserved better local representation.

"I will be running a campaign focused on the values which unite the people of Groom," Troy said.

"I believe our MP should understand the day to day cost of living pressures of our area, and fight for fairness and opportunity in our community.

"Every day I talk with people living in fear of losing their livelihood at the hands of the LNP's razor gang.

"I see the impact Campbell Newman is having in Queensland and I know that it would be even worse for our community if Tony Abbott is elected Prime Minister," he said.

Troy has a military background and lives in Toowoomba with his wife and five children. He currently works as a Financial Counsellor.
