News from Louise - 3 sleeps to go

The countdown is on and on Saturday, Kiwis are arguably making one of our most important decisions this year.

While so much has been out of our control in 2020 because of the unknown, I've heard from many of you that people are firmly focused on the future and you want to move on with the business of living.

To do that well, we need certainty. We need to know what we are going to do and how we are going to do it to get ahead - we need a plan. What is certain, is National's commitment to ensuring we live quality lives with a clear plan for 2020 and beyond to make that happen. 

This makes our election this year more important than ever.


I've demonstrated my commitment to you and our communities in Cambridge, Tirau, Putaruru, Tokoroa, Mangakino, Taupo and Turangi.

Our track record together includes many successes along the way like the Waikato Expressway, Atiamuri Bridge replacement, Taupo expressway, Waikato River Trail and Great Lake Trails, Taupo and Tokoroa Hospital upgrades to name a few. More recently we have seen the funding approvals for Taupo Airport upgrade and the South Waikato Trades Training Centre and I'm proud to have advocated strongly on your behalf.

We also have some unfinished business like extending the time and life-saving Waikato Expressway from Cambridge to Piarere, improving the quality of the SH1 Taupo to Turangi, and ensuring every one of our schools like Forest View Hill, Tauhara College and Cambridge High are upgraded to a world-class education standard.

I've advocated personally for many of you and your families and your businesses through good times and bad. I'd like to be part of your future too.

Now is not the time for a ‘she’ll be alright’ attitude for our and our children’s sake. I am asking for your support to continue my hard work in our community.

I am privileged to be part of a strong team and deciding for certainty is really easy, just choose two ticks blue this election.

If you are unsure of where you should go to do so, details are here.

Thanks for your continued support.

Hon Louise Upston

MP for Taupo
