Tracey and I have been married for 27 years and have two adult children. I am a local person, who grew up on our family property at Houghton. From my background in farming, banking and politics, and being a family man, I understand the issues that affect the people of Kavel.
I have been committed to delivering results for the benefit of everyone in Kavel.
Being elected as the Member for Kavel in 2002, I have worked hard for our region and am pleased to deliver real results for the community. I am Patron and member of many organisations and Tracey and I attend school and community events throughout the Electorate. I enjoy the direct contact with the community when attending electorate events as it is a valuable opportunity to hear first-hand what the issues and concerns are of the community.
The residential development of rural land has been a key issue in my Electorate since late 2008 and I have been involved from the very beginning, highlighting issues of concern and lobbying for the services and infrastructure that are currently required to meet the needs of the community.
The prescription of water resources in the Mount Lofty Ranges has been an ongoing issue since 2003, where many landowners have had serious concerns. We have reached the stage where notices are being issued for individual property water allocations. I will continue to support landowners in my Electorate as the water prescription process continues.
I will continue to work hard on these and other important issues of concern to the people of Kavel.
August Ludwig Christian Kavel, (1798-1860), a Lutheran pastor, came to South Australia with 200 of his German flock in 1838 seeking religious freedom. The original party, and succeeding groups of German migrants, made a lasting contribution to South Australia's development.
