“I’m honoured to be part of the Marshall Liberal Team, I’m eager to make my way around the electorate to work with families, local businesses and community groups to boost our economy and protect our unique way of life,” Mr Gilfillan said.

“From Kangaroo Island to McLaren Vale and everywhere in between, our area boasts world class food, wine, products and experiences. The Marshall Liberal Team’s GlobeLink plan will be a huge benefit for the community and local businesses to expand global markets and create jobs locally.”

“I pay tribute to Michael Pengilly MP who has been a terrific advocate here for over a decade, and I look forward to continuing his hard work.”
