David Ridgway

David Ridgway grew up in the small South-East community of Wolseley, and with Rural Youth travelled to the USA and Europe. He took over the family farm which had diversified into growing bulbs for the cut flower industry, becoming the biggest gladioli supplier in Australia.

David won a seat in the State’s upper house, the Legislative Council, in 2002 and he’s now Opposition Leader in that chamber.

Outside Parliament, David enjoys exploring the State, meeting and listening to locals about agriculture and primary industries, the opportunities for increasing South Australia’s food and wine sector exports, and forestry.
