Election 2020: Selwyn candidates for local MP

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

In the lead up to the 2020 election, Stuff is keeping voters up to date with what’s happening in their electorate, through Neighbourly. Here’s what you need to know about the candidates in the running to be Selwyn’s MP.

At the October 17 election, New Zealanders will have the opportunity to choose their regional spokesperson.

Through the Mixed Member Proportional (MMP) voting system, those enrolled can vote for the party they want as well as a local representative.

Why does my MP matter?

The person elected will be the voice for your region in Parliament. If you’re having trouble getting entitlements or dealing with Government departments, they can help. If your community needs funding for certain projects or activities, or there isn’t enough healthcare in the area, the elected MP can step in and help.

Another good day :)

Andy Noble from Noble Auto Services

Another crazy day but this would be a highlight of today 🙂
This car had not been started for years but!!! all is well now, one quick flick of the key and runs like a new car again 🙂

After getting a few things done including the removal of the petrol tank and giving it a good clean out and resealing all is good 🙂

Being mobile I get to see many cars from old generation to new generation cars.
Sorting out all these problems like non start, electrical repairs or even a service or mechanical repair its all done at you home or work place saving you the time and hassle 🙂

Former Bill English press secretary Nicola Grigg now Selwyn's new MP

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Newly-minted Selwyn MP Nicola Grigg might have expected a landslide victory in one of the country's safest blue seats.

And while her 5000-odd vote lead was a comfortable majority, the margin to her nearest rival took her by surprise.

“It just wasn’t what I was hearing on the ground.”

The National Party candidate, a former journalist who worked as a press secretary for Bill English when he was Prime Minister, replaces retiring MP Amy Adams.
