Biography

Growing up in Barker, Tony knows first-hand the challenges faced by local families.

Tony was born, raised and educated in Barker. Growing up on the family farm, Tony has a deep respect for the demands of life on the land.

After graduating with degrees in law and economics, he worked in Adelaide before being drawn home by his strong family and community ties.

Tony operated his own legal practice in the South East, representing local farmers, residents and businesses.

As a young father and family man, Tony know first-hand the real challenges faced by families in Barker, as they confront rising cost of living pressures and access to quality healthcare, jobs and education.

Tony has always believed in standing up for his local community, which led him to serve as a Councillor with the City of Mount Gambier between 2003 and 2010 where he worked to deliver better services and facilities for local residents.

Tony was elected as the Federal Member for Barker in September 2013 and returned to Parliament at the 2016 election. Tony wants to use his skills as an advocate and his experience as an effective representative to ensure that the views of local communities throughout Barker are heard loud and clear in the Federal Parliament.

Australia has secured an additional 20 million doses of the Pfizer #COVID19 vaccine. This adds to the 20 million doses already on order for delivery this year. More than 1 million COVID-19 vaccine doses have now been administered in Australia, with 81,297 in the last 24 hours. This includes 26,298 doses delivered by states and territories, and 54,999 delivered by the Commonwealth through GPs and aged care and disability facilities. Based on updated medical advice received last night, the Pfizer vaccine is now the preferred vaccine for adults under the age of 50, while the AstraZeneca vaccine is recommended for those over 50. Importantly, the medical advice remains that both vaccines are very effective in preventing severe disease caused by COVID-19. Safety remains our top priority, as it has been throughout the pandemic, and we will continue to follow the best medical advice in protecting Australians.
