Hey neighbours,

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 Te Tai Hauāuru'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.

Hi! I'm so excited to finally be sharing a project our team has been working on for a while now: First Rung, our first podcast!
First Rung is packed with tips, advice and anecdotes from experts and home owners on every aspect of buying your first home - it also comes with a chance to win a $500 Resene prize pack.
Over six, bite sized episodes, we cover everything from saving that deposit, to sunset clauses, to how to get your newly purchased home ready to move into.
We'll also introduce you to ordinary Kiwis, just like you, who have navigated the choppy waters of home buying in NZ and made it onto that first rung - and pick their brains for how they did it.
We all know buying a home is one of the toughest, most daunting things we might ever do as adults, so it doesn't hurt to get some expert advice and support. That's what we wanted to give you with First Rung.
So give it a listen and let us know what you think - and be in to win that mint Resene prize pack. I can't enter and I'm well jealous!

I had been putting up walking on sharp stones for 4 years to hang out my washing. Now I can walk out with bare feet. They had to dig out a lot of sand, do additional boxing and retaining. They came up with alternative ways of doing things eg. I have a steep long driveway with two tight corners, so instead of using a long tube to carry the cement, they used a smaller truck that could get up the driveway. This saved me money and also I did not have to remove any of my mature trees. Also, I would never have thought of this, but to ensure I would not slip over on a smooth surface the Vercrete boys, did a very slight stipple effect and yes it is very safe. The job was not an easy one as the original concrete bases on the 6 pillars were going to be too high and they had to reduce the height by jack hammering, which ended up being about 4 very heavy wheelbarrows of concrete rubble that they took away for me. This was my first ever job like this and I would totally recommend Vercrete staff of Michaela, Ash, Kevin, David, Dan and Ben. Any other elderly females wanting to use this firm should be confident you will be looked after professionally and even kindly. Thank you Vercrete and I wish you many years of successful business and will absolutely use you again.

Because the Paypal safeguards were not what I expected and they cannot arrange a refund of the money, I have cancelled my Paypal account that I held for many years.
