The Barker Electorate

The Division of Barker is an Australian Electoral Division in the south-east of South Australia. The division was established on 2 October 1903, when South Australia’s original single multi-member division was split into seven single-member divisions.

It is named for Collet Barker, an early explorer of the region at the mouth of the Murray River. The 63,886 km² seat currently stretches from Morgan in the north to Port MacDonnell in the south, taking in the Murray Mallee, the Riverland, the Murraylands and most of the Barossa Valley,

No, I didn’t get a pedicure today in Parliament but I did get my socks off for diabetes awareness and had my feet health checked. 🦶
There are around 4,400 diabetes related amputations performed in Aussie hospitals every year and up to 85% of these can be prevented. Early treatment can prevent problems escalating and potentially save a toe or foot from amputation. So if you have diabetes, make sure you’re getting your feet checked regularly. #getyoursocksoff #4400reasons

The National Rural Women's Coalition and Network is holding their annual Canberra Muster Leadership Program. Each year a selected cohort of RRR women ‘Muster’ in Canberra to be inspired, learn, network and grow their leadership skills and ‘giveback’ to their community through a volunteer project of their design.
So very proud and inspired by Suzi Evans from Mantung who is here this week to take part in this great program. Couldn't think of a better way to mark International Day for Rural Women!

Tony Pasin- who exactly is “we’ll” partner with NSW ? Is that SA partnering up with NSW ? If so, in what regard ? Is it our share of the $1.3b going to NSW? Or our expertise ? Or what ?

Absolutely. Setting our country up for the future. At last...

I am not sure believes any of this! What is being done about the water being held on hubby station?

Build the Mole River Dam. It has been in the plan since 1989. many local farmers are sick of listening to it. They cannot even sell out to retire because of this dam.

Should had been built 5 years ago, how will the dam's be filled when the country is going through a massive drought?

Both in LNP held seats and will there be water to fill them?

Hear hear!

we means the australian tax payer

Which state?

Wyangala only got an increase in dam wall size in the last five years. Are you saying it will get another wall increase.
