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,

How amazing are the new Karoonda Tourist Park cabins?! It was my pleasure to help officially open the redeveloped Tourist Park yesterday.

The $510,000 project was made possible by the Coalition Governments Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program which the District Council of Karoonda East Murray  allocated to the project to increase tourism offering and boost the local economy. Well done to all involved.Image attachmentImage attachment

It's a shame low cost housing like this can't be made for low income people to rent...

Good work Tony

Getting rid of the bs gel blaster regulations would also open up more tourism opportunities. There were several fields open that would require out of towners to use caravan/ camping facilities. Great for smaller rural & regional areas.

They look great!

Fantastic to join the Governor today with community in the Barossa to plant a tree for the Queens Jubilee! 
The Barossa Councils project to enhance the tree canopy received $8,000 from the Commonwealth Government as part of Her Majestys Platinum Jubilee celebrations.Image attachment

This morning I joined the  Australian Meat Processor Corporation  to help launch their new campaign “More to Meat” and to celebrate Australian red meat processors’ contributions to regional communities and the national economy.
Australian red meat is a world-class product backed by advanced manufacturing and local workers, supporting 138,000 local jobs in over 300 communities across Australia including here in Barker. 
Today reiterated just how important protecting our Aussie livestock industry is. A strong biosecurity plan is vital to the meat processing sector that contributes more than $21 billion to the Australian economy each year - 1% of Australia’s GDP.

Fantastic to join our local Karen and Karenni community in Mount Gambier yesterday at the Myanmar Food Fair and Fundraising for Myanmar event. More than 350 Karen and Karenni refugees have been welcomed into our Limestone Coast community. We join with them in sorrow as many who remain in Myanmar become displaced as they flee persecution. ... See MoreSee Less

We cannot underestimate the importance of Australias biosecurity. I met with Australian Livestock Exporters Council this week in Parliament House Canberra and they gave me an industry update about FMD and Lumpy Skin Disease. Today I attended a briefing from PIRSA in Adelaide and while Im grateful for the work the Department is doing I remain deeply concerned at this uncertain time.

I am disappointed that Simon Birmingham came out today saying he supports 43% Carbon emissions reduction when no scientist has yet proven proven that carbon emissions is causing climate change. Our energy prices are so high because of renewable and he still supports them. We only need to look at what happening in Germany and UK. All he needs to do is some research or he could even read books. One that comes to mind Green Murder by Ian Plimer.

Have a look at the roads while you're around. Both sides of the border are atrocious. Time to bring back a federal highways department?

Keep up the good work Tony Pasin MP

Yep and don’t forget Aged Care with the 5.6% rollout on wages as well as the added costs of Chovid , in keeping our elderly safe as well as monitor but giving the Residents a well rounded care and well being and mental health with family / friends visits and safe activities And no real increase Government $$in support of our Residents and the great Aged Care Facilities that these Residents call Home Tony Pasin MP👍👍

Labor is sending mixed messages on border security and this creates opportunity for people smugglers to prey on vulnerable people. 
Last time Labor was in government more than 50,000 people arrived here illegally on more than 820 boats. Tragically, at least 1,200 people died at sea. To stop deaths at sea, the government need to stop sending mixed messages and stop the boats.

Is Sri Lanka the country that has run out of fuel , has power outages and a currency collapse and government crisis. Yep, I’d be on a boat too.

Is this all you’ve got? Back to fear of brown people in boats? You’d still be in power if you’d spent a bit of time fixing the nation’s woes instead of living it up on the taxpayer dime. Be better.

How many intercepts during LNP government time? Morrison refused to discuss "on water matters: until that disgraceful move on election day.
