Hope you all exercised your democratic right on Saturday. Time will tell if all the election promises made will be adhered to and time for us all to hold them accountable.
Sad to see the loss of Steve Chadwick from politics, she was a champion for our children and older people. Her passion and work ethic will be missed both locally and nationally. Her legacy of smoke free working and dining experiences will have untold benefits for generations to come.
Congratulations to the Green Party, hoping that Mojo Mathers makes it in as well and becomes New Zealand's first profoundly deaf MP. In Mojo's words "I have worked extensively on disability issues and bring with me an insight into the challenges and barriers that people with disabilities face as well as my own experiences of what it is like to live with a disability." Another step to parliament being more representative of the population.
