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 last post ceremony at the Australian War Memorial is an important reminder of all those who have paid the ultimate price for our country and the values that we serve to uphold.

This is Sarah (and her beautiful dog Cali)
Sarah was diagnosed with MS in 2017 and has made the decision to travel to Mexico to undergo autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplant (AHSCT) treatment in an attempt to halt the damage caused by the disease and preserve her quality of life. This treatment doesnt come cheap and Sarah is aiming to raise as much as possible to cover her AHSCT treatment costs which will hopefully prevent her condition reaching the point of severe disability. 
I admire Sarahs courage and drive to fight this devastating condition. You can read more about her story and her fundraising efforts at https://www.gofundme.com/f/sarah-cali-beat-ms
Ive donated and I wish Sarah all the best in her fight against MS.

I just want to say a massive thank you to Tony for being incredibly supportive of his local community. It means a lot to us.

Sarah, I want to wish you all the best with your travels and treatment for MS in Mexico. I saw another young lady undergo a procedure in Russia (I think) for a similar ailment, and her recovery was miraculous! ❤️🙏❤️

Why Mexico... Why not bring the procedure here?

no sticker sent to me want 4 thanks Tony

It was fantastic to have State Shadow Minister for Health Ashton Hurn MP - Member for Schubert MP and Shadow Minister for Regional Health Services Penny Pratt MP meet with the Limestone Coast Radiation Treatment Working Party yesterday. It was a really constructive meeting. Its very clear that the community is passionate about seeing local radiation services made available to cancer patients here in the Limestone Coast.

Such a passionate group - a pleasure to meet, thanks Tony Pasin MP for organising.

Supporting this all the way but hope that I never have to use it. Been there done that years ago

Ive been calling for the duplication of Sturt Highway for some time now. 

While the State and Federal Government investment of $87.5 million for junction upgrades, overtaking lanes, pavement upgrades and rest areas has been welcomed, we need duplication of this major freight route for the safety, productivity and long term prosperity of the region and our State.

Don't stop at the Sturt hwy, add dukes hwy, Augusta hwy. Just do it in stages, a little bit each year.

Agree... Duplicating the Sturt Highway should be a priority.

Tony Pasin MP, you could ask the big businesses that received but haven’t repaid their undeserved JobKeeper to pay for it ?

Should be a dual lane highway from gawler to the border

why wasn't it done when your Government was in office?

Why do we need it people should drive with car

And when will the Dukes Highway be a priority for duplication? When will a solution bypass be in place avoiding downhill to Adelaide on the freeway which doesn’t involve coming in via Truro!!!!! I once heard you, along with Adrian Pederick poo-poo the idea of tunnelling through the Adelaide Hills with a “Australia is not known for its tunnelling equipment”! Errrrr the “NorthConnex is a nine kilometre twin tunnel linking the M1 Pacific Motorway at Wahroonga to the Hills M2 Motorway at West Pennant Hills in Sydney’s north.”

As the water recedes the damage becomes evident. 
I want to see these roads upgraded- not just returned to previous standard. We need real investment in our road infrastructure for flood mitigation. 
The time is now, and this is exactly why I brought Leader of the Opposition Peter Dutton to see these key transport routes and the impact of their closure on the community last week.Image attachmentImage attachment

Agreed, it may take longer and cost more, but we need to future proof our region & build back better.

I guess the department wasn't really interested in doing preventative works before hand, I wonder why they would be bothered doing more than they have to after. Perhaps there should be a federal enquiry of state based infrastructure spending and road management.

No cheap fixes please, they need to think before they start. Actually, they should have started thinking when the first news that there was going to be a BIG flood coming, and have everything worked out for repairs or replacement/realignment of roads by now.

There are local experts Tony, they need to be consulted and contracted. Govt needs to use the locals who take pride in the work they do for the community 😊

Productive road infrastructure is of great importance across all our communities.

It’s time they built up not just this road but also the Causeway between Meningie and Tailem Bend. Must future proof these major roads asap.

Libs were in power for 9 years and chose to do nothing. What makes you think Dutton will change now?

Tony Pasin MP Our ferry road has been cracked for ages does this mean we will have it fixed now?
