Led by the example of her parents who instilled in her the values of hard work, integrity and inclusion, Carolyn Power has devoted her life to positively shaping her community.
Carolyn has spent over 15 years in the not for profit sector serving and advocating for vulnerable and disadvantaged youth, and knows all too well the importance of adequate support, services and job opportunities.
As a Marion City Councillor, Carolyn was able to effectively represent and work with residents to resolve issues and achieve results, something she will continue for Elder. She has energy, integrity, and the proven ability to deliver at a local level.
Elected as the Member for Elder at the 2018 State Election, Carolyn is committed to representing the residents of Elder and being an accessible, inclusive and forward-thinking local member.
Locally, that means:
- ‘Reviving the Repat’ and repairing the damage of Labor’s Transforming Health;
- easing cost of living pressures for families through policies that will see reduced power prices, capped council rate rises, and lower Emergency Services Levy bills - putting more money back in your control to spend how you see fit for you and your family; and
- improving education outcomes for children and young people with the Liberal’s Literacy Guarantee and comprehensive anti-bullying program.
As the Assistant Minister for Domestic and Family Violence Prevention, Carolyn will work tirelessly to improve the circumstances and services for families experiencing domestic violence to ensure that all South Australian men, women and children, feel safe in their own homes.
