MP Chris Penk, Patron of the Kumeu Show
Chris Penk represents the Helensville electorate, a large area of Northwest Auckland that includes Kumeu and surrounding areas. Elected as local MP in late 2017, Chris is enjoying the opportunity to meet as many residents as possible and advocate on issues of local importance.
Before entering Parliament, Chris had served in the New Zealand and Australian navies and then worked as a lawyer for a number of years. He lives in Glen Eden with his wife and their baby (born two days prior to the 2017 General Election!) and dog.
Chris is delighted to have been invited to accept the role of Patron of the Kumeu Show and is greatly looking forward to another wonderful event in 2019
