Welcome to My Website

It is an honour to be elected to represent the people of the electorate of Stuart in the South Australian Parliament. I work very hard to give our electorate a strong and informed voice in all relevant matters and also to support people locally. Working effectively on behalf of the people of Stuart will always be my primary responsibility and I also put time and energy into my role as Minister for Energy and Mining as well as promoting regional development more broadly throughout our State. 

I hope this website will be a useful insight into the Parliament of South Australia, how I represent you there and throughout the community and a source of other helpful information. Please feel free to contact me or my staff if you require any assistance with state government matters or if you wish to raise any issues which are of particular importance to you.

Yours sincerely,

Dan van Holst Pellekaan MP
