The Government’s refusal to break the stranglehold of pay-TV company Sky on the media...
Monday, 25 February 2013
I am proud to be the new Labour member for Dunedin South. I will always do the very best I can to be a strong advocate for Dunedin, to represent the people and the communities that make up the Dunedin South electorate, and to be a strong, effective MP.
The Labour Party is centred, united and in a strong position to re-group and build a focussed and committed team to achieve government again in three years. We are the Party with the grassroots organisation, the Party that truly represents New Zealand and the Party with the ideas and commitment to make a better, fairer life for all New Zealanders.
Strong, supportive communities lie at the heart of my vision for Dunedin and for New Zealand. Along with more opportunities and support for people, particularly our young people to reach their potential. These are core Labour values. People want secure jobs, better wages, guaranteed superannuation and loving living stands and a society that cares for its most vulnerable.
They also want their communities and neighbourhoods to be safer, more cohesive, better resourced and with strong links to public transport and other core services.
That’s what I want too.
I have a simple philosophy that I try to live my life by which comes from the values that I grew up with. To try my hardest, to be the best I can possibly be; to do the right thing; and above all, to be true to myself.
That’s why I stood for parliament. It’s how I try to live my life and it’s what I teach my children.
It’s also what I will try to do as the Labour MP for Dunedin South.
