Nationals Barker Candidate Jonathan Pietzsch has backed SA river communities, saying he strongly disagrees with some National party members comments from the Eastern states when it comes to Murray Darling Water. 

Speaking recently, Mr Pietzsch says the basin plan should be delivered in full, however water buybacks from irrigators should not be a part of water recovery.

Mr Pietzsch said “there’s a lot more than can be done in terms of recovering water such as covering open irrigation before buybacks are a part of the conversation”.  

The South-East based Politician, & State President of the National party is understood to be in the Riverland again early next week.
