Anthony is the SA-BEST candidate for the seat of Unley. He is committed to the passionate representation of Unley and to bring positive outcomes to the state.
Growing up, Anthony worked for the family business wholesaling fruit and vegetables in the historic East End and Pooraka markets. He is pro-business and understands the challenges and risks of running a business and wants to fight for businesses to become more competitive.
Anthony was born and educated in Adelaide's inner southern suburbs undertaking his secondary education at Pulteney. He then studied at the University of South Australia, prior to becoming a Chartered Accountant.
Professionally, Anthony has had years of international government advisory experience within SA, the UK, and the US in Education & Training, Health, Treasury and Finance, Social Services, and Infrastructure. This includes working for Cabinet Office at Westminster in London on key projects. Anthony will apply these experiences so that decision-making will be based on merit rather than political considerations.
Most recently, Anthony has been working as a consultant to industry and Government on major administrative projects. He was involved in the setup, implementation, and transition of the newly-formed Department of Child Protection. He was also involved in the transition of the Compulsory Third Party Insurance (CTP) scheme from the Motor Accident Commission to the private sector. If elected he would be hands-on in offering advice and direction from within Parliament.
Anthony believes in a balanced approach to local planning laws where heritage, green space and housing density are adequately protected to ensure projects contribute to the community as well as our economy.
He will also endeavour that the local supply and funding for local school places will meet the current and future requirements of the electorate.
Roads and the flow of traffic within the local area are also an important area of his focus, requiring a joint collaborative assessment between local and state government to better manage the increasing flow of traffic, adequacy of pedestrian crossing's and safety of our cycling community.
He fully supports Nick to bring transparency to government as sees this as an essential base for better outcomes for our future.
He supports SA-BEST's call for a royal commission into the health system which would identify failures ranging from cost blowouts, long waiting lists to clogged Emergency Departments. This should enable the state to better allocate funds into preventative, mental and related community health services which SA-BEST fully supports.
Anthony will also advocate for the ageing population of South Australia. He supports SA-BEST’s policy principles which address cost of living stresses and the provision of services that encourage affordable, comfortable and well-maintained retirement and aged care. He will be looking forward to discussing these policy principles with residents upon visiting your local area.
Anthony has the drive, passion and the skills to make a difference!
