Let's Make Hammond Matter!

My name is Kelly Gladigau and I am a fourth-generation farmer’s wife, mother of five children, registered nurse, volunteer and committee and board member of local community organisations in the mid Murray region. I am running in the next state election on 17th March 2018 to represent you in the seat of Hammond in the state parliament.

With your support, as part of Nick Xenophon’s SA-BEST, I believe we can bring about the real change that our community and our state desperately needs.

For the first time in a long time I am excited that Hammond can have a real choice; a choice that will deliver positive change through parliament on important issues our region is facing.

Our region is home to many rural communities with a vast variety of industries from manufacturing and processing, to dairy, dryland, irrigation, horticulture, viticulture and broad acre farming, to name but a few. The River Murray is an integral part of the electorate, making it an attractive region for families, professionals and industries such as tourism.

Like many of my fellow constituents, I am proud of the rich history and opportunities that a regional area such as Hammond offers us, our families and our communities. However, I have also become disenchanted by the same old 'it’s one party or the other’ option. So, I have decided to stand for my electorate of Hammond and offer a real choice that will deliver positive change and bring government back to the people.

I want to make a difference and I believe that if you are passionate about the change you want, you need to be involved in that change.

​I am committed to working hard for the people who elect me and will focus my energy in areas that are important to Hammond. In the coming weeks and months, I hope to get a chance to meet and talk with you. In the meantime, you can contact me via email at kelly.gladigau@sabest.org.au, or call the campaign office on (08) 8545 0400.

I'd love to hear from you about the issues that matter to you and your family.

Best Wishes,

K Gladigau Signature

Some of what matters in Hammond:

Murray Bridge Soldiers Memorial Hospital

Hammond deserves a 24/7 doctor stationed at Murray Bridge Hospital. The State Government must provide 24 hour access and availability to the Emergency Services Department situated at the Murray Bridge Hospital, and ensure this service is bulk billed.  This will be a key priority to achieve ASAP if elected in Hammond.

Support Farming Industries

The State Government needs to support all farming industries.

I will fight to ensure local producers and industries thrive and receive the necessary support of the state government.

I will also do all I can to ensure the full implementation of the Murray Darling Basin Plan because SA depends on a healthy river to support our farming communities. 

Local Government Accountability

As your elected member I will be relentless in ensuring that the elected government is:

• acting responsibly transparently and accountably;

• providing essential services that are accessible, affordable and reliable;

• supporting our local economy and families in achieving a solid and sustainable future;

• making Hammond a great place to live and work. 


We need to provide our rural areas with affordable transport options and services. And our roads need to be so much better, I will fight to ensure we have safer roads and improved transport opportunities for the people of Hammond.
