Selwyn MP Amy Adams is introduced to Herald readers this morning.
A lawyer and farmer, she’s right when she says:
“[Agriculture] was our past and it remains our future. It is the primary sector that will help us as a country find our way through these troubled financial times.”
Her maiden speech is here.
A footnote for those who think the National Party and rural New Zealand aren’t female-friendly: the large blue tracts on the political map from the North Canterbury to the southern reaches of North and Central Otago are represented by Amy in Selwyn, Jo Goodhew in Rangitata and Jacqui Dean in Waitaki.
