Katherine's new MLA Jo Hersey has picked up a swag of portfolios in the NT's strengthened Opposition.
Ms Hersey will be the Shadow Minister for Education, Environment, International Education, Sport, Water Security and Seniors.
She could have quite literally been in the shadow of the former NT Education Minister Selena Uibo, the Arnhem MLA who also has an office in Katherine Terrace office just across the dual highway from Ms Hersey's office.
In fact they share no portfolios.
Ms Uibo is Attorney-General, Minister for Justice, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Minister for Treaty and Local Decision Making, Minister for Parks and Rangers
