Member for Barker Tony Pasin hosted a successful community meeting in Beachport last week as part of his continued effort to ensure local voices are heard in Canberra.


The meeting was well attended by local residents on Wednesday night who raised a number of issues directly with Mr Pasin as well as hearing from their local Federal Member about what’s happening in Canberra.


Issues discussed included mobile and internet access; poor quality of the local road network, in particular the Millicent to Beachport Road; electricity supply interruptions; cross border restrictions; and the importance of diverse education and training opportunities for regional youth.


Beachport is one of a series of community meetings that Mr Pasin is holding around the electorate.


“I try and be as accessible as possible as I travel around the electorate. Due to the COVID pandemic it has not been possible to host a mobile office at farm fairs, field days and shows this year so it is more important than ever to ensure that I’m available as much as possible to speak with my constituents in person.”


“I am most effective in Canberra as a representative for Barker when I have a clear understanding about what is important to my constituents.  That’s why I have begun a series of community meetings,” said Mr Pasin.
