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.

Ageing and Adult Safeguarding Regulations 2019
The abuse of vulnerable adults is unacceptable. It is never justified. New laws have recently been passed by the Parliament of South Australia to set up a new Adult Safeguarding Unit, which is expected to start later in 2019.

Draft Ageing and Adult Safeguarding Regulations 2019 and a discussion paper have been prepared based on previous feedback received from the community and key organisations.

Improving flood management: dams and levee banks
During the 2016 floods, a significant number of dams across South Australia failed or got very close to failing. Levee bank failure along the Gawler River near Virginia contributed to the region’s horticultural crops flooding. The total cost of the floods was around $70 million in damages to the state’s agriculture and local government infrastructure.

We want your help to shape an improved statewide approach to how dams and levee banks are managed to reduce the impacts of floods in South Australia. We are also interested in your thoughts about other priorities for improved flood management in South Australia.
