"Stephen Graham Wade" is an Australian politician. He has been a Liberal Party of Australia member of the South Australian Legislative Council after an appointment in May 2006.

Wade was a ministerial adviser to former state minister Dr Michael Armitage (politician)/Michael Armitage before working in the water industry. Having decided to make a move into politics himself, he nominated for the party's Legislative Council ticket for the South Australian legislative election, 2006/2006 state election with the support of the party's moderate faction. It had been predicted that as a moderate he would only receive the distinctly unwinnable seventh position, but in an upset result, he instead took the theoretically winnable fifth position. However, the party suffered a particularly bad defeat at the election, and the party was only able to win three seats.

This whole region is on fire. It's not just St. George.

I look at some people here in St. George, and it's phenomenal what they've done with real estate. There is a certain element about real estate deals that is like gambling. It gets under your skin, and you want to do it. There is a frenzy that comes with it. You get excited as you do things.
