Before his election, Gee had been a secretary of the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union vehicle division and a Labor state president with close connections to the northern suburbs of Adelaide and to Holden.[2]

Gee's seat of Napier was renamed King and the boundaries moved east for the 2018 election, paring Gee's margin from a fairly safe nine percent to an extremely marginal 0.1 percent. Gee opted to transfer to the friendlier seat of Taylor, which received some of the western part of Napier in the redistribution.[3]
