Residents in Pakuranga will soon receive a letter in the mail from Simeon Brown, MP for Pakuranga, asking them to share their views on the issues that are most important to them and their families.
“As New Zealand heads into this year’s election on 19 September it is important that I understand what matters most to the people I represent in Pakuranga,” says Mr Brown.
“I have spent a lot of time during my first term as the local MP meeting and talking to locals on their doorsteps, at community events, and on the streets around the electorate, getting to know them and what they care about.”
“As we prepare for what is shaping up to be a crucial election for the future of our country, I want to hear from as many residents as possible.”
“My job as MP is simple – to represent the views of the people of Pakuranga in Parliament, and to ensure they are getting the best out of their government.”
“Many people in Pakuranga are doing it tough. Increasing living costs, like rent, fuel, and food, are putting a strain on the back pockets of the hard-working Kiwis who live here.”
“There are also two major referendums taking place during the election this year: one on recreational marijuana, and one on assisted suicide. It is important that everyone thinks carefully about their own views on these issues, so that we get these decisions right the first time.”
The Pakuranga Electorate Survey should arrive in local mailboxes over the next two weeks. If you do not receive one and would like to respond, please get in touch with Simeon by calling 09 572 0000, emailing PakurangaMP@parliament.govt.nz, or you can fill it out online at simeonbrown.national.org.nz/pakuranga_survey.
