Eyre Electorate

07 Feb, 2013 05:23 PM

THE Seat of Eyre will no doubt be tightly contested.

But most analysts agree it will be a two-man race between sitting Liberal member Dr Graham Jacobs and local farmer Colin De Grussa, running for The Nationals.

Mr Jacobs has a strong reputation but a redistribution has slightly reduced his margin over The Nationals.

Mr Jacobs won the seat with a margin of 3.6 per cent over The Nationals at the last election but that was reduced to 3.4pc after the redistribution.

Greg Smith will run for the Labor Party while Brett Higgins will run for the Australian Christians.

Farm Weekly asked candidates to respoind to the following questions:

1. Land clearing and the issues between the Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC) and farmers. What is your view on this relationship? And what will you do in this area to try and improve this relationship?

2. The State Barrier Fence continues to be an issue for farmers. Will the fence be government-funded and supported and constructed in the next term if you are elected?

3. What do you see as the three key issues in your electorate and why? And what do you intend to do about them?
