Statistics show that Victor Harbor Road remains one of the state’s most dangerous roads which is why I’m backing the RAA’s plan for the road to be duplicated from Main South Road to Mount Compass and widened from Mount Compass to Victor Harbor.
My name is Joe Hill and I’m thrilled to be running as the SA-BEST candidate for Finniss.
When the major parties enter into an election campaign, it’s the marginal seats that get the attention. They get most of the funding and key infrastructure projects.
Safe seats are taken for granted - and Finniss is one of the safest Liberal seats in South Australia. As such, it’s little surprise that Victor Harbor Road - one of the state’s most dangerous stretches of road - continues to be overlooked for much-needed upgrades. SA-BEST has backed the RAA’s call for Victor Harbor Road to be duplicated from Main South Road to Mt Compass, and widened from Mt Compass to Victor Harbor.
Cost of living pressures are a major concern for Finniss residents, particularly those on fixed incomes. The State Government has lost control of our electricity utilities, while the opposition are offering no solutions. SA-BEST has a sensible approach to tackling the power crisis which involves sustainable power generation and returning the power to the people.
I spent 12 years working for Alexandrina Council where I held management roles in Human Resources and later, Governance and Strategy. I currently work as the Manager of Constituent Services for Nick Xenophon Team Senator Stirling Griff. Our colleague Rebekha Sharkie, Member for Mayo, has shown what can happen when you turn a safe seat into a marginal one. Since she became your local Federal MP, the Fleurieu has started to get the attention it deserves.
The 2018 election presents a great opportunity to give Finniss the breath of fresh air it needs. Under Nick’s guidance, SA-BEST will ensure responsible, accountable and transparent government which works FOR the people and isn’t driven by vested interests.
I look forward to discussing the key issues with you over the coming weeks. I’d love to hear from you so please feel free to contact me via email at email@example.com or call the campaign office on (08) 8545 0400.

My Key Priorities
Victor Harbor Road duplication
Tackling substance abuse
South Australia has the highest usage rate in the nation of methamphetamine (known as 'ice') but there are basically no services available for people who need to be rehabilitated. SA-BEST will fight for dedicated rehab facilities so those struggling with addiction get the support they need.
SA-BEST will work with key stakeholders to unlock the Fleurieu Peninsula’s tourism potential. Investing in the Victor Harbor Road - the key transport link - and improved support and promotion will drive visitor numbers and boost the local economy.
Sporting clubs are the lifeblood of regional communities and an important social hub for bringing people together. I will be pushing for greater investment in local sport and rec facilities and programs which promote inclusivity and wellbeing.
