Federal Member for Grey Rowan Ramsey spent a jam-packed day visiting the new areas of his electorate of Grey this week.
Mr Ramsey said he has been regularly visiting the southern communities which have become part of Grey as part of the electoral redistribution through the last few months.
“It is vitally important in order to represent these new areas, that I have a full understanding of the communities and issues within them,” he said.
“Since I have been the Member for Grey I have immersed myself in this vast electorate and have developed a strong knowledge of the people, industry and challenges within it.
“Now Grey has expanded even further to include the Clare and Gilbert, Light, Adelaide Plains and Wakefield regional councils, I am taking every opportunity to meet as many of my new constituents as possible.”
This week Mr Ramsey held mobile offices in Roseworthy, Hamley Bridge and politics in the pub in Owen and Tarlee where he met locals who shared their concerns and plans for their communities.
“I also met with members of the Light Regional Council including Mayor Bill O’Brien and then with the Adelaide Plains Council and Mayor Mark Wasley which enabled me to get a handle of what local government issues are most pressing,” he said.
“I was also able to visit the excellent Hamley Bridge Aged Care facility.
“Some of the issues raised included poor water pressure, roads, especially the Horrocks Highway, Aged Care Grants and the Gawler River Flood Plain Management Scheme.”
Mr Ramsey thanked all who made the time to attend to share their concerns and plans for their local communities.
He said he is often in the area and encourages anyone to contact him if they have ideas or opinions they would like to share with him.
