Mr WINGARD ( Mitchell ) ( 15:39 ): I rise today to speak about a busy period in and around the electorate of Mitchell. There has been plenty happening and numerous great people giving so much to their community.Read more
I've been asked by many about my appearance in the slowdown and given my football background I thought this could be a good place to set the record straight.Read more
Facilities at the Reynella Community Club were identified as an important issue in Mitchell at the 2014 state election and is an issue I am passionate about progressing as the Member for Mitchell.Read more
I am very proud to be showcasing a selection of artworks from Seaview High School students in the Mitchell Electorate Office.Read more
One of the first matters brought to my attention when I was elected was the trouble that the Patritti family was having getting the sign on Morphett Rd replaced after it was knocked over.
Despite a few attempts and some odd excuses the Department refused to put it back up.
Given that wineries in rural regions all have tourist signs pointing to their cellar door it was greatly unfair that a rare working winery in the city was not being afforded the same courtesy.
It was also pointed out by people on the community that the sign was a key "landmark indicator" on Morphett Rd and was sorely missed.
Thankfully persistence paid off and the Department did change its mind and the sign was replaced.
Having a working winery and cellar door so close to Marion Shopping Centre is a real bonus to our community. I can highly recommend a visit if you haven't been before they have an outstanding range of white, red, fortified and non-alcoholic wine.
If you'd like to read more about the history of Patritti winery below is a speech I presented in Parliament.Read more
Mr WINGARD ( Mitchell ) ( 15:21 ): I rise today to speak on a very hot topic in my electorate that just keeps getting hotter. I am being hounded on social media and with phone calls and letters to my campaign office from people complaining and telling me about the ongoing delays caused by the Oaklands crossing in the electorate of Mitchell. It is an absolute crying shame that, over the journey, this government, in the past 12 years, has done nothing to fix this ongoing saga that just will not go away.Read more
