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 kmΒ² 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,

Today was the official launch of the Tanunda Lutheran Home’s Robot Project.
 
This technology was made possible through a federally funded grant of $890,671 via the Aged Care Support Improvement Fund.
 
Tanunda Lutheran Homes are leading the way, being the first aged care organisation in South Australia to utilise the Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) system.
 
Thanks to the Robots, there is even more time for resident, carer relations. The robots will save staff time meaning more time can be spent doing what really matters.

Can you take a look at southern ports Highway next please?

Can you explain why some parts if the new sealed sections dont have shoulders and some do?

Will there be any rest stops?

Feral deer cause severe economic and environmental damage. Aerial abatement is the most effective way to remove large numbers of deer from our landscape. Following my meeting with landholders in the Limestone Coast recently, I met with Minister Sussan Ley MP this week in Canberra to discuss the issue and the need for increased funding for the aerial abatement program.

With the price of meat we hunt some deer a few times a year on our property and use the meat. We have endless guys who wish to come and hunt. They use the meat for their families. No wastage. I am not understanding why everyone does not just do this. The helicopters can do the national parks...

Even better, open up public forests for hunting like Victoria. It’s well regulated, safe, and a good way to increase tourism and revenue.

Federal members cause severe economic and environmental damage. So what method should be used here. Ask them nicely to stop sexing up our country. We can't take it any more. Go sexing off somewhere else.

How about calling on deer hunters to help cul and deliver the animal to the abottors for processing, would that not be cheaper and more affecting and provide a recreational event for the hunters......

How about stopping the importation of cheap foreign labour driving down wages and conditions of Australians.

I love that you're promoting this. Also remember, though, that Robodebt forced unnecessary hardship on thousands of Aussie battlers. How many suicides can be attributed to your boss's actions?

Sadly Christmas is being cancelled for many Australians this year.

In Parliament today I acknowledged the Berri Men’s Shed.

Men's sheds are at the centre of so many communities across Barker, and I'm so pleased that we can now add Berri to the growing list of sheds thanks to the Berri Church of Christ and $20,000 from the Federal Government's Stronger Communities Program.

Why is ScoMo enforcing vaccine mandates??? If he was against mandates (like he said he was) he would have supported Pauline Hanson's bill. But no, and neither did Barnaby Joyce. Actions speak louder than words.

Tony Pasin MP Mount Gambier Men's Shed is now vaccine only. Locking out men who need that vital support. The whole Men's Shed ethos has been destroyed in Mount Gambier. Will you support the funding of another Men's Shed in Mount Gambier that is inclusive with out prejudice.

What about the tent at the mount gambier hospital?

How about not selling local jobs to the lowest bidder!
