Penny Simmonds

The Invercargill electorate has been and will always be best placed to understand our needs and the best way to deliver for them. Too many decisions are made in Wellington without understanding the uniqueness of our community.

Having been involved with farming all my life, the value of our Agriculture and Horticulture industries are also top of mind for me.
