The manager of the Tauranga Women’s Refuge has been selected as the Labour Party candidate to contest the Bay of Plenty electorate in September’s general election.
She is Angie Warren-Clark who has worked in the electorate for ten years in the field of domestic violence and is a non-practicing barrister and solicitor who has two grown children living overseas.
Angie and her husband Blair own a building business and live in Papamoa in the heart of the Bay of Plenty electorate. The seat is held by National’s Todd Muller with a 15,000 majority.
Labour’s President Nigel Haworth says Angie joins a growing list of energetic and fresh candidates who will stand for Labour in 2017.
“Our focus is on electing a strong, Labour-led government next year that will rise to the challenge, back the Kiwi Dream and build a better New Zealand.”
Angie Warren-Clark won the candidacy before a meeting of party members last night. She also ran for the Labour Party’s Tauranga candidacy but was pipped by Merivale School principal Jan Tinneti.
