Liberal Candidate for Torrens

Former ABC radio producer, and mother of two, Therese Kenny, will contest the north east electorate of Torrens for the South Australian Liberal Party.

Therese has depth and a rich life experience, as a nurse, a community service officer and working at every level of government, local, state and federal.

Currently, a Senior Adviser to the Federal Defence Industry Minister, Christopher Pyne MP, Therese brings a wealth of business and marketing experience to focus on her local area.

Ms Kenny's appointment is the result of a preselection college held on Saturday in Hampstead Gardens. Ms Kenny is excited to work with the local community in Torrens and have the opportunity to win the seat for the Marshall Liberal Team at the next election.

Therese has demonstrated a long standing commitment to serving her local community and, through her work in Government, has delivered results for South Australia more broadly.

Ms Kenny has extensive community involvement as Chairperson of the St Monica’s school board, coaching local sporting teams, including the Campbelltown intellectually disabled netball team.

“I will always put the people of Torrens first, listening and advocating on their behalf,” Ms Kenny said.

“We need jobs, opportunities and optimism in South Australia. That’s why I’m committed to the Marshall Liberal Team’s plan to get our state back on track.”

“Globe Link” offers an opportunity not only to make our local streets safer but to building a platform that will boost business, grow exports and create jobs for South Australians.

“Most of all, we need to give local businesses a fighting chance by creating cheaper and more reliable baseload power. Instead of Jay Weatherill and Labor’s failed experiments, I am determined to contribute to sensible planning our state so desperately needs.”

State Liberal Leader Steven Marshall welcomed Therese Kenny’s election.

“Therese is a fantastic addition to the Liberal Team. Her hard work in the community and experience at the top levels of government over many years will make her an effective representative for the people of Torrens,” Mr Marshall said.

“Once again it’s great to see another strong female candidate preselected in a winnable seat.”
