Political career[edit]

Warren-Clark stood for the Labour candidacy in the Tauranga electorate in 2017 but was beaten by Jan Tinetti.[4] Her successful candidacy to represent Labour in the Bay of Plenty electorate was announced in February 2017.[1]

Warren-Clark has two adult children who live overseas. She is married to Blair, and they live in Papamoa.[2] Warren-Clark has a law degree from the University of Waikato and was admitted to the bar in 1998.[6]
