Election 2020: Hauraki-Waikato candidates for local MP

The Team Reporter from Stuff

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 Hauraki-Waikato'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.

power prices

Wendy from Maeroa

last week i received an email from trustpower saying that the govt had set up an electricity price review which recommended the removal of the 15% discount for prompt payment. Then they said they have/will adjust the unit prices so we pay about the same. BUT today I have another email saying that gas prices charges for the property are going to rise by 16c/ day. Looks suspiciously like a work around to increase prices ! Has anyone else had similar info coming to them?

David Bennett former MP for Hamilton East.

John from Fairfield

It was a very nice touch to see a lonely David Bennett by himself waving a placard at the Boundary Road bridge which was thanking his supporters with a big smile and a friendly wave. He may have lost his electoral seat last weekend but has been generous in saying thank you for the support given to him at this time. This was nice to see.
