The past 7 days have been action packed. Alongside a busy-time in my regular day-job, my role as Labour candidate for Dunedin North has been all go.
On Wednesday and Thursday, I enjoyed a flying visit from Phil Goff. During his stay, he announced Labour’s procurement policy, met with Hillside workers, had a beer with local supporters, and heard the challenges facing many of Dunedin’s social service providers.
Thursday my ODT opinion piece on VSM was published. I spoke to a church group during their midwinter lunch at Sawyers’ Bay.
Friday lunchtime, I spoke to a politics class on campus. The previous Friday at the same time I’d attended the debate on the anti-student VSM bill. Channel 9 broadcast a summary of the debate.
On Saturday, I had the pleasure of attending the annual Dunedin cultural concert. Hosted by the Otago University Students Association, it featured fabulous colour, energy and talent.
And I’ve had a few adventures in the snow.
You can’t beat Dunedin on a good day.
