Light to decide state election
LOCAL identity John Bolton will likely make a
second attempt to become Gawler's new mayor
at the 2014 local government election.
Following the recent launch of the Save Holden
Community Group, the former Gawler Rotary Club
president has all but confirmed he will run against
current Gawler Council Mayor Brian Sambell at the
local government election in a year's time.
"At this stage I almost certainly will stand for may-
or at the November elections," he said.
"I'll be doing so on the basis that we have a very
good set of employed people working for council and
I don't believe it's for the mayor to be unduly con-
cerned with rates, rubbish and roads and those sorts
"I think we have good, experienced, well-quali-
fied bureaucrats to do that and I think the job of the
mayor is to put the town on the map and to envisage
the future for Gawler and to lead and drive Gawler
into the next four to eight years, and so that's where I
would be focusing my efforts, if elected."
Mr Bolton ran against Mr Sambell in the 2010
elections and lost by 275 votes after preferences.
Mr Bolton said he decided to contest last elec-
tion on the final day of nominations after being ap-
proached to run for the position.
Meanwhile, the political hopeful has also not ruled
out running in the state election in March next year.
While Mr Bolton told The Bunyip he would not
contest the seat of Light as an independent, he is
considering nominating for a seat in the Legislative
Bolton's mayoral ambitions
THE seat of Light will decide
the fate of the South Austra-
lian Parliament at next year's
election, according to Jay
Speaking at the launch of Mem-
ber for Light Tony Piccolo's re-elec-
tion campaign in Evanston Gardens
on Sunday, Mr Weatherill declared
the marginal seat will play an inte-
gral role in deciding if Labor will re-
main in government or whether the
Liberal Party will come into power.
"Tony, of course, holds a seat
which is absolutely vital for us to
retain if we are to retain office in
March 2014," he said.
"Indeed, it's impossible to imag-
ine us being re-elected in March
2014 without Tony being re-elect-
ed in March 2014 so that's how im-
portant this seat is for the future of
the Labor government."
Mr Piccolo was elected to parlia-
ment in the marginal seat in 2006
and was re-elected in 2010.
In January this year, he was ele-
vated to Cabinet, taking on the role
eatherill told the 70 invited
guests and Labor faithful that Mr
Piccolo "represents the very best
that we have to offer in terms of
elected representatives anywhere".
"Tony, I think, without fear of
contradiction, I can say is the best
local member in the South Austra-
lian Parliament," he said.
"Nobody represents his constitu-
ents more effectively...and more
powerfully than Tony Piccolo.
"I can tell you that for a fact,
because as a minister he drives you
absolutely crazy, and I can speak
for my other ministers who say he
drives them absolutely crazy.
"But that's what local members
do -- they are always putting the
needs of their community front
Mr Piccolo also addressed the
gathering at the Evanston Gar-
dens Community Hall, saying that
throughout his 30-plus years in
public office, in both local and state
government, his commitment to
the community has never wavered.
"Whether it is supporting a small
sacked worker gets
fair go, or tackling the red tape that
sometimes hinders a small business,
or a woman with her children who is
homeless as a result of domestic vio-
lence, my staff and I have supported
these people and our community
without judgement," he said.
"At the local level my staff and I
have worked tirelessly with numer-
ous community organisations -- not
only to support our wonderful
volunteers but help build a strong
sense of community.
"Whether it is Willo's Men's
Shed, the Gawler Community
House, the Wasleys Community
Group, the SPRinG Group, or a
local sporting organisation, or the
Angle Vale Scouts Group, we will
continue to walk alongside you to
help build stronger communities."
Mr Piccolo also said he will con-
tinue to fight to progress the Gawl-
er train line electrification project.
"Will it be a challenge to win the
election in this electorate? It sure
will," he said.
"Can we do it? Yes, we can."
