Jack Batty comes with years of experience including as a commercial lawyer in Adelaide and in diplomacy at the Australian High Commission in London. As a lawyer, he worked with a range of South Australian businesses in some of their most difficult times. Whilst in London, he was a delegate to the climate change conference in Glasgow, worked on Australia's free trade agreement with the United Kingdom, and led efforts to bring over 4 million Pfizer vaccines to Australia during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Jack and his wife, Charlotte, have deep ties to the Bragg community. They bought their first home together in Bragg seven years ago, having both grown up in and around the eastern suburbs. They understand the pressures on first home owners and the aspirations of young families.
Jack is passionate about our local community and policies that matter to local residents. The local community needs a new local primary school, and better freight corridors need to be developed to get trucks off Portrush Road.
Jack is excited by the prospect of joining David Speirs’ fresh, new Liberal team to deliver an alternative vision for our state – ensuring we have world class health and aged care and looking after our environment, while also growing our economy and easing cost of living pressures.
