I enjoy campaigning. Now Parliament has risen, I get to spend more of my week in Dunedin with the people who elected me. Whether at street corner meetings, during door-step conversations or at meet the candidate events, I love the direct feedback. Most Dunedin people are hoping for a Labour-led government. Thankfully that is looking more and more likely by the day.
Opportunities for people to meet their local candidates involve a fair bit of organising. My thanks to all of the groups that are hosting events – as well as to all of the volunteers campaigning hard for Labour in Dunedin North.
