It’s in the blood.  The things we choose to do in life are usually consistent and Burlington’s Paddy Torsney is being consistent with her career – politics.

Off to New York city to work on a world stage.

We are expecting an official announcement any day that she will be at the United Nations as the Permanent Observer for the International Parliamentary Union.  Exactly what the organization does and what she will be doing is something we will leave to Ms Torsney to tell us on her return.  She was in New York earlier in the week working out the details.

The Union is the focal point for world-wide parliamentary dialogue and works for peace and co-operation among peoples and for the firm establishment of representative democracy

What most of us will want to know is how we look her up when we are in New York and getting the latest on all the hot spots.

Paddy is a member of the Privy Council which means she will be known as the Honourable Patricia Torsney – but Paddy to the rest of us.

Congrats kid!
