Cambridge to Piarere Extension update

I’m continuing my fight for the Cambridge to Piarere highway extension which forms part of the Tauranga to Hamilton Expressway extension project. I presented our petition with 3953 signatures to the Transport and Infrastructure Committee recently.

“Have your say” campaign launched for Rural NZ

National recently launched the ‘Have Your Say’ listening campaign for Rural New Zealand as the next step in our 2020 election policy development process.

We are surveying rural New Zealand communities to hear their thoughts on access to top-quality public services and infrastructure like broadband, rural policing, education and health services.

New Zealand’s success depends on our farmers and farmers for their $42 billion a year in exports contribution, while employing 350,000 people. Having the right policies in place to help rural communities is vitally important

The online portal is an easy way to share your views and can be found here or you can pick up a hard copy of the survey from one of my offices.

Taupo next Youth MP announced

I’m extremely pleased to announce Katie Donald of Taupo Nui-a-Tia College as the Taupo Electorate’s next Youth MP and representative at next year’s Youth Parliament in July 2019.

Katie has really impressed with her clear passion and enthusiasm for youth issues, and I am looking forward to working with her and the Taupo Youth Advisory Board over the coming months.

Well done, Katie!
