Member for Barker Tony Pasin has been hosting community meetings across the Barker electorate as part of his continued effort to ensure local voices are heard in Canberra.

As a result of recent electoral boundary changes, the electorate of Barker will increase in size to include the towns and surrounding areas of Kapunda, Williamstown, Lyndoch, Springton, Mount Pleasant and parts of Roseworthy.

“I try and be as accessible as possible as I travel around the electorate of Barker which is now over 65,000 sq kms in size. I have mobile offices at farm fairs, field days and shows 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’m encouraging residents to come along and share their views with me when I’m in their local area,” said Mr Pasin.

Mr Pasin is hosting meetings in Freeling, Kapunda, Williamston and Lyndoch in coming weeks as to engage with local communities and better understand the issues in these regions.
