Local faces join Schubert team

Member for Schubert Stephan Knoll has welcomed two local faces to his electorate office in Tanunda following the March state election, where the Marshall Liberal team successfully ended 16 years of Labor government.

Mr Knoll said he was thrilled to secure the services of Schubert locals Carla Wiese-Smith and Rheanne Mann as his electorate office manager and assistant, respectively.

“I am so pleased to have Carla and Rheanne on board to assist Schubert constituents on a day-to-day basis,” he said.

“They are both familiar with the key issues of the electorate, and are keen to help find resolutions and make changes for the better within our community.”

Most recently the editor of Barossa & Light Herald and Northern Argus, Miss Wiese-Smith said she looked forward to continuing to work with and for her community.

“I’ve been fortunate to live and work across Australia, but there really is no place like home,” she said.

“I’m really excited to be able to give back to my community in a new and different way. The Barossa is truly unique – those who live here know it, and there is so much more we can do to be able to share it with the world.

“But there are also issues which need to be addressed to ensure this region continues to thrive as a place that people want to live and visit, and I can’t wait to work with Stephan to make Schubert even better than it already is.”

Miss Mann has come to the Schubert electorate office from Ahrens Engineering, having completed a traineeship in Mr Knoll’s office two years ago.

“It made me realise just how valuable local relationships are to the success of the community,” Miss Mann said.

“There is so much to be proud of in Schubert, all of which is a result of its people.

“Being offered the opportunity to again work with local people and businesses for the development of the electorate is something I couldn’t refuse and I look forward to seeing the area continue to grow during my time here.”
