Megan Hands has been selected as National’s candidate for Rangitata.
National’s new Rangitata candidate would like to see more mothers in Parliament and thinks her ‘’strong background’’ in rural and environmental management will help in her campaign for the seat. . .
Hands has spent her professional career in agricultural and resource management consultancy working with farmers, growers and small business.
“With a strong primary sector base, Rangitata is well-placed to help lead a post-Covid economic recovery.
“The people of Rangitata are extremely hard-working and right now they are worried about the future, whether they will have a job and how they will support their family.’’ . .
Megan has a strong party background as an active Young Nat and member of the Blue Greens. She has also been active in Young Farmers, including twice reaching the regional finals of the Young Farmer of the Year contest.
Her experience working with farmers to improve environmental performance will be invaluable.
She will bring strong science-based, practical environment credentials to the caucus and will be a strong advocate for her electorate.
Her name will be a gift for campaigning – Hands up, helping Hands . . .
