Cross Border Commissioner steps down

South Australia’s first Cross Border Commissioner Liz McKinnon has today announced she will step down from the position.

Ms McKinnon was appointed to the role in December 2022 and officially started in the role in April 2023, based in Mount Gambier.

As a cross border resident, she brought a strong understanding and much lived experience of the issues facing cross border communities to the role.

A State Government spokesperson said Ms McKinnon had been a strong advocate for border communities in South Australia, building a key foundation as South Australia’s first Cross Border Commissioner.

“Having established this role as an important part of South Australia’s landscape, Liz has made the decision to step back into the private sector, returning to focus on working closer to family,” the spokesperson said.

“The office of the cross border commissioner is fundamental in supporting the State Government to identify opportunities and enhance regional social and economic development outcomes.

“We look forward to providing an update on a new Cross Border Commissioner in the near future.”
