The Labor Government’s gross mismanagement of our hospitals has led to unprecedented delays and waiting lists. Its care of our most vulnerable citizens is the subject of a Senate Inquiry. SA has one of the highest rates of crystal methamphetamine use in Australia but hardly any rehabilitation programs. SA-BEST will focus on solving these important health issues that Labor has ignored.
My name is Paul Brown and I’m the SA-BEST candidate for Schubert in the State election.
I have spent all of my adult life being a passionate advocate for my community and industry at a local, state and national level. I have been married to Mandy for nearly 36 years and we have two wonderful adult children. They are incredibly supportive and excited about me standing as a candidate in Schubert for SA-BEST.
I have worked tirelessly representing my community and industry over many years and on your behalf I will continue to do so if elected as the member for Schubert.
I have extensive of experience in various forms of administration, having been a member of boards including the Australian Tourism Export Council SA, the South Australian Tourism Industry Council Board (SATIC), the Chair of the SATIC advocacy committee and Chair of the local tourism marketing board. I have also chaired, captained, and coached my local cricket and football clubs.
Most recently I’ve been involved with the SA Health Oakden Response Plan Oversight Committee Model of Care – Expert Working Group. It’s a big title but essentially, this group was responsible for designing a new model of care for mental health in South Australia. This appointment came about through my sister being a resident at Oadken because of early onset dementia. I wanted to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.
My focus will be on three levels as a candidate and Member of Parliament. Firstly, it is about delivering outcomes for the individuals of Schubert. Secondly it is about finding out from the electorate itself what it thinks needs to be done. Thirdly, it is about what I can do as part of the SA-BEST team to improve our State.
SA-BEST will achieve the best outcome for our electorate. We are not complacent, we truly want to know about your issues and we really want to make a change for the better.
I have demonstrated over many years that I am a passionate advocate for my community for tourism and agriculture and have delivered positive outcomes. I will be that passionate advocate for Schubert. For further details you can contact me via email at email@example.com or call the campaign office on (08) 8545 0400.
P.S. If you would like to get involved in the campaign as a volunteer that would be great. Call or email me, or contact the SA-BEST campaign office on (08) 8545 0400.

My priorities for Schubert
Mental health and aged care
Sixteen years of Labor has given SA some of the highest electricity prices in the world. Average wholesale energy prices in SA have more than doubled since this time last year. SA-BEST will prioritise making power more affordable and reliable.
Business incentives and jobs
Two of the major growth industries are tourism and agriculture and as part of small businesses they are vital for our communities and employment growth particularly in the regions. They need support and encouragement so that younger and older people alike can find work. SA-BEST will fix the TAFE debacle so that people can get the right vocational training they deserve. We need to find ways to stop the exodus of young people from this state and it starts with jobs growth.
A vote for SA-BEST will ensure that elected State and local governments are responsible, transparent and accountable. Essential services will be accessible, affordable and reliable. SA-BEST will support our local economy and families to achieve a solid and sustainable future that makes SA the best place to live and work.
