MORE investment into industries across the Limestone Coast was one major issue identified by One Nation Barker candidate Carlos Quaremba.

Mr Quaremba visited the Limestone Coast earlier this week in a final bid prior to the Federal election on Saturday.

Speaking with members of the public and businesses throughout his visit, the candidate said more investment into industries such as timber mills should be top of the list.

“The Limestone Coast has a lot of small industries down here including timber mills and such which we need to start investing in as well as reconnecting the farmers to their water rights,” Mr Quaremba said.

“We need to start putting Australians first, especially when it comes to housing.

“I recently heard we may be bringing in Ukrainian refugees, and yes it makes me feel warm and fuzzy on the inside, but if we are going to open our doors to Ukrainian refugees we need to open our doors to those in Australia who are sleeping rough first.”

Mr Quaremba also said he would work towards abolishing how-to-vote cards for future elections stating he believed too many community members relied on the information provided.

“One thing I would love to do is remove those cards and corflutes and try and educate people and encourage them to spend a bit of time reading up on the candidates,” Mr Quaremba said.

He also said, if successful, he would relocate from his current residence in Victor Harbor to live in the Barker electorate.
