New Liberal Candidate for Heysen

Respected Adelaide Barrister Josh Teague has been selected as the Liberal candidate for the electorate of Heysen in the coming state election.

Mr Teague’s appointment was the result of a preselection meeting held at Meadows on 7 April, following an announcement by current Liberal Member for Heysen Isobel Redmond MP that she will resign from Parliament at the next election.

A local to the Hills who lives in Bridgewater with his family, Mr Teague uses his broad experience in the law to give back to the community. He is the Honorary Consul to Sweden and also provides legal assistance to Nature Foundation SA. Mr Teague was part of the strong legal team who worked with the Liberal Party to achieve a fair outcome in the recent Boundary Redistribution and successfully fought to dismiss Labor’s legal challenge in the Supreme Court.

“I’m looking forward to hitting the ground running and listening to locals on the issues that matter to them, so we can make the Hills an even greater place to work and raise a family.”

“I hope to build upon Isobel Redmond’s legacy and am proud to be part of the Marshall Liberal Team that’s committed to delivering Globe Link.”

“Not only will Globe Link provide businesses with the competitive advantage they need to get our premium local products to international markets, but it’ll improve our area by removing freight trains from the Adelaide Hills and will reduce trucks on the South Eastern Freeway.”

Liberal Leader Steven Marshall welcomed Mr Teague’s selection as the Heysen candidate.

“Josh has a combination of legal, business and community experience which makes him a fantastic addition to our team and I know he will be a strong advocate for the people of Heysen,” Mr Marshall said.

Isobel Redmond MP also congratulated Josh. “Josh is a man of utmost integrity and he will be an effective representative for Heysen.”

“I look forward to working closely with Josh over the coming year and introducing him to the many great people who live and work in the Hills.”
