Treloar to retire after 12 years
Member for Flinders Peter Treloar has announced he will not be seeking re–election at the next State Election, to be held in March, 2022.
With nominations now open for incumbent Liberal MPs, Mr Treloar has advised the Premier and Liberal Party State Director of his decision.
Mr Treloar was first elected at the 2010 election, and was returned at the 2014 and 2018 elections.
“I will have had the honour and privilege of representing the electorate of Flinders for three terms, a total of 12 years in the State Parliament,” Mr Treloar said.
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time serving the people of Eyre Peninsula, and am grateful for the confidence and support given me.”
Mr Treloar has been appointed to various Parliamentary roles in both Opposition and Government and is currently Deputy Speaker and Chair of Committees in the Marshall Liberal Government.
“I’d particularly like to thank my family. Being a Member of Parliament is a job like no other, and I greatly appreciate the support my wife Annette, our four children and their partners have given me over the past 12 years.”
“I also want to take this opportunity to thank my staff – who have worked tirelessly with me over this time to ensure our electorate offices at Port Lincoln and Ceduna provide service to constituents.”
Mr Treloar intends to continue living on the family farm at Edillilie, and is looking forward to once again being actively involved in farming, as well as spending more time with family.
