My values are Labour values.

I want to help build a stronger, more caring society. I am passionate about Dunedin, and I bring considerable energy and wide experience to the task of representing this electorate.

My diverse work background has given me an understanding of the economic and social levers that can be pulled to achieve meaningful change.

Please read some of the discussions included here. I welcome your comments.

Dunedin North

Tonight I was selected as the Labour candidate to stand for Dunedin North

Following in Pete Hodgson’s footsteps is a real privilege.  He’s been a powerful advocate for Dunedin North – and will be for a while yet.

Thanks to those who’ve supported me through the selection process and to all of the Labour Party members and affiliates who turned out on the day. 

The Labour Party in Dunedin North is strong.  Talent and experience runs deep in this electorate.  It is an honour to be selected and I am looking foward to working with local members to deliver a serious Labour victory in 2011.

    Congratulations, David. It is great to see someone with good values selected as a candidate with a good chance of becoming a Member of Parliament. I don’t forget your kindness to our family when our son was hurt in a ski accident, long before you were the respected warden of Selwyn. Best wishes for the next year. Catharine Franks, Wellington
