New Liberal Candidate for MacKillop

South East business owner and grazier Nick McBride has been elected as the Liberal candidate to contest the seat of MacKillop in the 2018 State Election.

Mr McBride’s appointment is the result of a preselection meeting held yesterday in Naracoorte. The preselection follows an announcement by current Liberal member for MacKillop, Mitch Williams MP, that he will resign from Parliament at the next election.

Mr McBride has a strong record of standing up for the region and delivering locally.

“My top priority is regional development. We must look at all opportunities to boost growth in regional South Australia,” Mr McBride said.

“For many years I’ve championed local business, which is why I’m excited to be part of the Marshall Liberal Team that’s committed to delivering Globe Link. Globe Link will boost opportunities for our region’s businesses to get their premium products to international markets and create jobs locally.”

“We must do all we can to nurture our rural industries and attract investment. That means fixing the power crisis to create reliable baseload energy, enhancing water security and fostering innovation to drive our industries forward.”

“I’m really looking forward to hitting the road, listening to locals and working with the community on the issues that concern them.”

State Liberal Leader Steven Marshall congratulated Nick McBride on his election.

“Nick McBride’s business and farming experience, work ethic and passion for regional development make him a terrific addition to our team.”

“Nick is passionate about fighting for this region and he will be a great representative for MacKillop in the Parliament.”

Mitch Williams MP also congratulated Mr McBride on his selection. “Nick’s strong local knowledge and community connections make him a terrific representative for the people of MacKillop.”

“I know Nick will run a strong campaign over the next twelve months and I look forward to working closely with him to ensure he retains the seat of MacKillop and helps deliver a Marshall Liberal Government.”
