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,

Any action coming down salt creek way tony? Things are looking grimmer day by day. The zero Death toll for the last ten years in this section is not going to stand any longer.. #150kms of nothing We really need your help down here mate. Please.

First new roads but then can we move onto an extensive reform to implement harsher penalties for offenders who abuse children and somehow make sure the legislative changes operate effectively? NSW has made the move - all states need to follow.

Oh, can we get some money for that bridge near Lyrup and a dual highway fttom Nuri to Vic border and help save some lives.

Good work, best representation we have ever had. Thanks mate. Merry Christmas.

I hope it includes Brownswell highway????

Your doing a great job Tony, wishing you Season Greetings to you and your family and perhaps a nice break!

I agree Adam.

Which one's?

✅!! MORE JOBS !! Our Government made a commitment to create more jobs and we've delivered. ✅
In fact, well over 1 million more Australians are now in jobs than were in September 2013. I was in Nuriootpa today and I met with Dylan at Bridgestone who recently completed his apprenticeship through the Federal Government's Youth Jobs PaTH Program. The program gave Dylan the employment skills and experience, and it enabled Bridgestone to host Dylan as an intern before deciding to employ him full time.

Couldn’t have said it better myself. It's time to connect! An interconnector between Lake Albert and the Coorong has been discussed for long enough. It’s time for action.

So you are going to drain Lake Albert to restore parts of the Coorong for a short while?

Are there any research/findings available for the public? IS the estimate still around $19M (from this article in 2014 www.abc.net.au/news/rural/rural-news/2014-10-01/sach-lake-albert-water-cycling/5781842

Well done 🎄

Oh yes! Because the Labor party - who introduced universal superannuation for all workers and has worked hard ever since to protect superannuation and maximise the rewards for retiring workers - cannot, we all know, be trusted to take care of the average worker. The Liberals, on the other hand - the party that wants a massive tax cut for the big banks and opposes every application for a general pay rise - can always be trusted to put the interests of the workers first, especially the poorest in our society.

signed thank you Tony

That is so unfair considering that pensioners have paid taxes all their lives and now need all they have to live on

And you think this makes you and Werner somehow unique Tony Paskin? And then does this entitle you to some 'unearned' benefit not available to others? Most of us HAVE worked hard, raised our families, and still found time to become involved in community- support activities! Werner 'appears' to have placed his own economic welfare in every position on the podium!

I’m a self funded retiree who has a large super fund thanks to a Labor government and my lifelong hard savings. Why should I have a tax free super pension PLUS tax free other income? We all need to pay tax. Perhaps we need tax reform and our current government should adopt the Henry Review on taxation..... No they just want to demonise taxation with a race to the bottom resulting in no government assets or services.

I call this misleading BS!!.... and you do know it is too Tony Pasin MP!

I joined State and Federal Water Ministers on the Coorong on Friday to discuss this vitally important region. I used the opportunity to reiterate the importance of delivering the Murray Darling Basin Plan in full and on time. I also called for urgent action on an inter-connector between Lake Albert and the Coorong. It’s been talked about for far to long. Let’s make it happen. ... See MoreSee Less

We are currently driving thru the Coorong and the stench is putrid!
