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,

The second of six forums around Barker about Bill Shorten's plans to tax retirees on their savings. It's very clear after hearing from attendees in Mount Gambier and Murray Bridge that Labor's tax will really hurt those who have worked hard and saved for their retirement. Many said they will need to cut down on basics - like their groceries - having less money to spend at the local businesses that are so important to regional communities and employ many of our young people.

📱Our Government's recent Federal Budget included a further $160 million to address Mobile Black Spots in rural and regional Australia, taking the total Government investment to $380 million. Round 5 of our Mobile Black Spot Program is now open for mobile network operators and infrastructure providers to apply for funding under this program, thanks to this additional funding. A Morrison Government will get on with the job of addressing this issue. More funding means more black spots addressed, including here in Barker.

Would LOVE to see an #optus tower out here. Telstra don't care the we have poor signal so maybe Optus should get into the market out here.

We now have a mobile tower in Kalangadoo, good job. However my mobile still won't work as it uses Optus as it's carrier. The tower is only Telstra. Ho-hum, just waiting for Optus to lease some space on the tower now. lol

We’re 5kms (yes five) out of Tailem Bend just off Princes Highway and have desperately bad Telstra signal and have to use Sky Muster for Internet, because we can’t connect to the fixed wireless towers. No Netflix or Stan or similar for us any time in the near future.

Anything towards building some more dams or raising the current ones??

Kalangadoo mobile tower is up and operational thanks to Mr Pasin's hard work and lobbying now we have 100% coverage on telstra

Thanks. Now at least we have a state gov that will jump on board and give the regions a fair go I hope

There's a shortage of jobs in mt Gambier fot married men with families to support. How about putting pressure on the slack employment agencies that dont function and treat people with no respct at all .

Stop lying its not a retiree tax its a policy to reduce the ability of wealthy retirees using the superannuation system as a tax dodge and it helps poorer people to build a nest egg.

I want an MRI machine put in our MB hospital and minor surgeries done there as well, not to be sent to that Adelaide monstrosity they built, Flinders is closer and the sa govt has everyone going to Adelaide why.

Please don’t let that shorten near our money😏

We sure are

Thanks Tony

Taking away franking credits is like taking away PAYGO refunds.

Protect the past with blood of the future.

They won't get mine! I've moved it offshore where it's safe from socialist criminals.

🌲🌲Forestry is a hugely important industry for the Limestone Coast, employing thousands of people across the supply chain. It's no wonder that the Green Triangle was chosen as one of six locations in Australia to be a Regional Forestry Hub. Our Government has contracted the $1 million in funding for the Hub, helping support growth in the local industry. It's all part of our National Forest Industries Plan, a plan that will deliver better returns for business, more investment, more jobs and greater economic growth in the region ✅ ...

If our local MP was less short sighted he would be actively lobbying the forestry companies and farmers to diversify and establish a hemp growing industry, while at the same time providing incentives for other companies to create fibre, textile, oil and foodstuff industry...

Just a question. Weren't we a Forestry Hub already with the CSIRO research facility here! Before it was closed!!

A Liberal MP complaining about a Labor government selling off assets? Bit sad they got to it before you and your mob could, right?

But state labor sold forestry sa off.

People just need to get over it the sale of the forests it is the best thing that happen here to Mt gambier

Sold out, big mistake, why?????? SHOULD NEVER HAVE HAPPENED......... .

No value adding. All the trees just head to China. What is wrong with this country??!!

Helping out in the shed today at the Nangwarry v Kongorong game. This kicks off my annual footy season volunteering around the electorate. It’s also the first Nangwarry home game since they lost their Clubrooms in January. Great to be out with the club following my announcement of $200,000 from the Federal Government to help with the rebuild. ✅ #PasinDelivers ... See MoreSee Less
