Good to see
Something I have advocated for years is MP's riding along with our emergency services to see what actually goes on out there.
"...Louise Upston, National MP for Taupo, was with police in Turangi on Friday night to see at first hand the harm caused by alcohol when they were called to the shooting of Lower Hutt teacher Rosemary Ives, 25, about 11pm..."
Not what you might expect to see, perhaps, but 'expect the unexpected' is life working emergency services!
We probably would not have heard about her riding along, were it not for the totally preventable tragedy that occurred that night...
