Kate Bickford

Kate is the SA-BEST candidate for the seat of Badcoe. She is inspired by the opportunity for positive change at our next election and wants to directly contribute it.

Kate lives in Forestville, within the electorate for nearly 20 years. Kate loves the area and has strong friendships with people and businesses throughout it. She is a devoted mother of two primary school age kids and she is a busy commercial lawyer in a big firm. Although she is not a politician, Kate has all the essential expertise to make a highly effective representative. She is a professional problem solver and advocate. Most importantly she knows how to listen, how to analyse problems, find solutions and when necessary, how to fight for what is a right.

Through her professional life, Kate has worked for small and big business in South Australia, in the areas of energy and resources, agribusiness and China related business. Kate regularly deals with the mechanics of government. It is through this experience that she has a fine appreciation of where improvements can be made to ensure that decision making is based on merit and not politics. Kate sees greater transparency as an essential and fundamental way to improving our economy.

Kate is keen to see local people and local business contribute to and benefit from solutions of all forms but in particular around high energy prices. Kate will also be an advocate for balanced improvement to planning laws to ensure that developments contribute rather than subtract to the community in which they are located.

Kate wants to see that the local schools and all community amenities such as parks and playgrounds are upgraded to promote a healthy community environment.

Kate has the energy and passion to make a difference, she is well skilled to do so.
