Fantastic hospitality from the Bay of Plenty SuperBlues today - thank you for inviting me Todd Muller MP! I took the opportunity to talk about my previous role as Spokesperson for Seniors, as well as the important contribution "old white men" can bring to company boards - something the current Minister for Women may be struggling to understand!
I’m looking forward to getting stuck-in with my two new spokesperson portfolios: fisheries and racing.
Regarding fisheries, it is essential that our fishing industry continues developing sustainable practices, ensuring our oceans are fit-for-purpose for future generations.
Our climate for horse breeding in New Zealand is the envy of other nations across the world, and our many success stories are a testament to this. Championing these successes and building on them are key ...to the industry’s future success.
2018 will bring with it many opportunities and challenges. I am excited to be a member of a team who are a government-in-waiting, ready to tackle 2020 head-on.
