Australian Conservatives’ candidate for Giles, Cheryl Kaminski, has answered a series of questions this week from the Stock Journal:
What do you believe is the biggest challenge facing Giles?
“The issues include a lack of health services, our roads are a mess and something desperately needs to be done to address mental health. For the past nine years our elected members have been the only ones pushing a Royalties for Regions policy which would return $88 million back into regional communities.”
What do you see as the major issue affecting SA agriculture and how would you rectify this?
“In Giles, agriculture is a major contributor to the economy and major employer, yet Labor has not given the support or the investment to our farmers and graziers. We advocate for more money towards research and development, we fight for food producers’ Right to Farm legislation and have fought to give money back to the regions through Royalties for Regions.”
What are your views on allowing mining on prime farming land in Giles?
“Another way to protect agriculture is to stop invasive open cut mining on our arable farm land. The Australian Conservatives will amend legislation to annex arable land from this invasive mining practice.”
