My name is Kelly Gladigau and I am a fourth-generation farmer’s wife, mother of five children, registered nurse, volunteer and committee and board member of local community organisations in the mid Murray region. I am running in the next federal election to represent you in the seat of Barker.
With your support, I believe we can bring about the real change that our community and our state desperately needs.
For the first time in a long time I am excited that Barker can have a real choice; a choice that will deliver positive change through parliament on important issues our region is facing.
Our region is home to many rural communities with a vast variety of industries from manufacturing and processing, to dairy, dryland, irrigation, horticulture, viticulture and broadacre farming, to name but a few. The River Murray is an integral part of the electorate, making it an attractive region for families, professionals and industries such as tourism.
Like many of my fellow constituents, I am proud of the rich history and opportunities that a regional area such as Barker offers us, our families and our communities. However, I have also become disenchanted by the same old 'it’s one party or the other’ option. So, I have decided to stand for my electorate of Barker and offer a real choice that will deliver positive change and bring government back to the people.
I want to make a difference and I believe that if you are passionate about the change you want, you need to be involved in that change.
I am committed to working hard for the people who elect me and will focus my energy in areas that are important to Barker. In the coming weeks and months, I hope to get a chance to meet and talk with you.
I'd love to hear from you about the issues that matter to you and your family.
