Angela Maree Warren-Clark is a New Zealand politician and Member of Parliament in the House of Representatives for the Labour Party.

Career before politics[edit]

Warren-Clark is a non-practicing barrister and solicitor.[1] She has been active in the field of domestic violence since the early 2000s, and was the manager of Women's Refuge in Tauranga prior to her election.[2] The refuge had to operate on a mere $21 a week fund from Government which she described as "appalling" and had to raise $500,000 every year in fundraising to sustain the refuge.[3]

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 stood for Labour in the Bay of Plenty electorate in the 2017 election without success but was elected to Parliament via Labour's party list, where she was placed 39th.[5] Initially she had not been elected on the provisional results, however Labour gained enough party votes when special votes were counted for Warren-Clark to be allocated a seat.

Private life[edit]

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]
