Hello and Welcome to My Website!

I decided to set up this site as a communication opportunity for myself and most importantly – you – the people of Frome. I hope you enjoy exploring this site as much as my staff and I did when putting it together. I appreciate feedback, and would love to hear from you as to the information you would like made available on the site.

The Frome Electorate and Regional South Australia is very important to me. Engaging with the community is essential to ensure that I have a clear understanding of issues faced by the people of Frome.

LISTENING POSTS IN FROME

Geoff welcomes the opportunity to visit towns in his electorate, and meet with the constituents in their local region. Frome covers over   8,266 square km and 25,215 constituents. Many people in the region do not have the resources to visit Geoff at his Electorate Office in Port Pirie and this gives those people an opportunity to meet face to face with their local State member. In 2016 Geoff has met with constituents in Clare, Balaklava, Gladstone, Port Broughton, Saddleworth, Riverton, Bute and Snowtown; see below for Geoff’s next regional Listening Post.
Constituent of Frome are encouraged to make an appointment to discuss any state issues.

SA Citizens Jury Report on the Nuclear Fuel Cycle

The Citizens Jury have identified key issues from the Nuclear Fuel Cycle Royal Commissions findings that South Australian’s should consider in more detail and discuss during a state-wide consultation:
• Community consent – and the importance of an informed opinion
• Economics – including the benefits and risks to the State
• Safety – including key issues around storage, health and transport
• Trust – noting that accountability and transparency must be built into any regulatory systems.
The Citizen’s Jury report is now available at yoursay.sa.gov.au/nuclear/citizensjuries/citizens-jury-one
Which includes a ‘call to action’, requesting all South Australians to join the Jury in being part of this process of shaping the State’s future. The state’s largest engagement program will begin later this month, with around 100 sites being visited, including more than 60 towns.
A full list of dates, venues and times will be available on the YourSAy nuclear website this week and updated on this website.
October will see a second Citizens’ Jury of approximately 350 people, including the original members of the first Jury, to evaluate the feedback from the state-wide consultation and weigh up the choices and options on the important issues raised by the Royal Commission.
In November, this second Jury will produce a report summarising the community’s position for the Government to consider in its response to the Royal Commission’s Report by the end of the year.
