The Hon. V.A.TARZIA (Hartley) (15:26): I rise today to congratulate an absolute titan of sport in my local electorate—that, of course, is the Hectorville Football Club. The Hectorville Football Club senior women's team was lucky enough, fortunate enough, last weekend to win a premiership. How good is that?

APPROPRIATION BILL 2023 - Second Reading

Jun 28, 2023  |  speech

The Hon. V.A. TARZIA (Hartley) (20:47): This government had an opportunity to address the cost-of-living crisis, to address the inflation crisis, to address the cost-of-living increases that people are seeing each and every week. Some people out there in the community are struggling even just to pay their power bills. There was a golden opportunity from this government to do something about these issues that affect South Australians, but instead what they have done is squandered that opportunity in this state budget.

CAMPBELLTOWN CITY SOCCER CLUB

Jun 27, 2023  |  speech

The Hon. V.A. TARZIA (Hartley) (15:07): Today, I rise to talk about two powerhouse clubs that met at the weekend in the Federation Cup: Metro Stars and my beloved Campbelltown City Soccer Club. I have to say, what an absolutely fantastic game that it was.

STATUTES AMENDMENT (SERIOUS VEHICLE AND VESSEL OFFENCES) BILL - Second Reading

Jun 15, 2023  |  speech

The Hon. V.A. TARZIA (Hartley) (12:54): I also rise to support the bill. My thoughts and prayers do go out to the Naismith family. Can I also say that we will do everything possible to make sure that we can continue to pass laws like these here to make sure that these types of incidents are never able to happen again.

STATE BUDGET

Jun 13, 2023  |  speech

The Hon. V.A. TARZIA (Hartley) (15:20): I rise today to speak on what is the eve of the second budget of the Malinauskas Labor government. What this government needs to remember is a simple concept called OPM, OPM being other people's money. This government were elected on the basis that they would fix the ramping crisis and that they would divert funds away from a community recreation space at the time and put that money into ramping.

GLYNDE RSL SUB-BRANCH

May 31, 2023  |  speech

Mr TARZIA (Hartley) (15:20): I recently attended the Glynde RSL Sub-Branch annual dinner. It has always been a spectacular occasion and I do sincerely thank the RSL for all that they do for the local community.

LOT FOURTEEN

May 31, 2023  |  speech

Mr TARZIA (Hartley) (12:40): When I think about Lot Fourteen, I also think about Silicon Valley. I might talk a little bit about a visit I once took to the west coast of America, where I was lucky enough to visit companies like Apple and surrounding technology companies

DI FRANCESCO, REV. CANON M.

May 16, 2023  |  speech

Mr TARZIA (Hartley) (15:24): Today, I rise to speak about a farewell service I recently attended for Reverend Canon Mara Di Francesco. We recently gathered for what was quite a bittersweet service as we said farewell to Reverend Canon Mara Di Francesco. Mara has been a vital part of our community in Campbelltown for many years and it is certainly difficult to imagine St Martin's Anglican Church Campbelltown without her very significant leadership.

May 03, 2023  |  speech

Mr TARZIA (Hartley) (11:00): I move:

That this house—

(a) congratulates the Adelaide Giants on their outstanding ABL Claxton Shield victory against the Perth
Heat;

St Bernard's Road and South Australian Infrastructure

May 02, 2023  |  speech

I would like to take the opportunity to inform the house today about two items. One is obviously a local infrastructure item that we would like to work towards a solution on, then the second one is about infrastructure in this state more broadly.
