National has announced:
Mr Walker, 32, lives in the Clutha-Southland electorate with his partner Penny and has a strong family history to the Clutha-Southland area. He currently works as a business advisor, specialising in strategy and governance.
“I’m excited to have this opportunity and am ready to hit the ground running,” Mr Walker says.
Last election Hamish stood for Dunedin South, one of the safest Labour seats in the country. He probably never imagined that just three years later he’d be standing for National in one of the safest National seats.
