Meet Emma Dewhirst
I want to contribute my skills to help the next Labour Government to continue improving our water quality and environment and strengthen our resolve to deal with climate change.
I am honoured to be chosen to represent Labour in this wonderfully diverse and sprawling electorate.
I'm from a long-established Marlborough family and I live in Blenheim with my partner Shaun.
We have two young children and being someone who likes to get things done, I've been President of Blenheim Playcentre for the last 18 Months.
I've worked in London and Melbourne managing projects and teams and am currently remotely in the regional sector.
In our electorate I will seek more Labour initiatives that deal with our desperate shortage of affordable housing. I will work with our nurses and doctors to help resolve the needs in our health system and I will support our teachers and parents to get the resources to ensure our children get the best possible start.
I intend to be available and responsive across our electorate to speak about other needs from across the electorate, please feel free to contact me or our campaign team for a time.
