Tom Kenyon, since 2006.
North-eastern Adelaide. Newland covers the suburbs of Banksia Park, Fairview Park, Redwood Park, Ridgehaven, St Agnes and Tea Tree Gully, and parts of Highbury, Hope Valley, Houghton and Vista. The seat also stretches east towards the Adelaide Hills.
Newland shifted north, losing parts of Highbury and Vista and gaining Fairview Park. The ALP’s margin increased from 2.2% to 2.6%.
Newland has existed as an electorate since since the 1977 election, and has alternated between Labor and Liberal members.
John Klunder won the seat for the ALP in 1977. He lost to the Liberal Party’s Brian Billard in 1979, and won the seat back in 1982. In 1985, he shifted to the seat of Todd, which he held until 1993.
Dianne Gayler won Newland for the ALP in 1985, and held it for one term until 1989, when she lost to the Liberal Party’s Dorothy Kotz.
Kotz was the first Member for Newland to serve consecutive terms in the seat, and ended up serving four terms. Kotz served as a minister in the Liberal governments of the 1990s, and retired in 2006.
In 2006, a 12.5% swing to the ALP saw Tom Kenyon gain the seat. He was re-elected in 2010 despite a 4.6% swing back to the Liberal Party.
Newland is a very marginal Labor seat and could be very vulnerable in 2014.
