East Otago High School year 13 pupil Keiran Ireland (17) of Warrington spent a day in Wellington recently "shadowing" Dunedin North Labour MP Dr David Clark.

The day, Thursday, August 30, was a good choice, Keiran said, because the living wage campaign was being held in Wellington.

Parliament also held a conscience vote that day on the legal drinking age.

Keiran would like to "be in politics" and has plans to study politics, history and possibly a language at Victoria University next year.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

You can help us continue to bring you local news you can trust by becoming a supporter.
