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.
