First-time MP voice for city
Jamie Strange didn’t wake up one day and decide to be a politician.
For Hamilton’s newest list MP, it was a decision that had been stewing in the back of his mind since the day he became a dad.
‘‘When our first child was born in 2008, it was the biggest change in my life.
‘‘It was really good for me because it made me think beyond myself. Something opened up inside me that had been closed.
‘‘I started thinking about what the world was going to be like for my son.’’
‘‘We needed people in parliament who had worked in certain fields.’’
