Steve Maharey

Steve Maharey stands at the state (government-funded) house he lived in for some years, near Savage Crescent, Palmerston North. Maharey has been MP for Palmerston North since 1990, and a minister in Labour-led governments from 1999. It was also the house in which former Palmerston North MP Trevor de Clene grew up. Savage Crescent was named after Michael Joseph Savage, the first Labour prime minister. It was at the centre of a state housing development built between 1939 and 1946 – the largest such project in Palmerston North.
