Labour MP offers flood aid

Labour MP offers flood aid

Labour MP Kelvin Davis has offered his Whangarei office as a coordination centre for people needing help as a result of the recent flooding throughout Northland.

As from 9am Monday staff and volunteers will field calls to assist where possible.

"There will be people out there needing help but don't know who to turn to. It is the role of Members of Parliament to help where they can in such situations." Kelvin Davis says.

Mr Davis' office can be called if people need help to deal with government agencies, Councils, food banks or other.

A team is being coordinated to assist with small scale tidying up around Whangarei, but this may be extended if volunteer groups around the north can be coordinated.

Kelvin Davis' office number is 09 430 7922 or texts can be sent to 022 0616052, or he can be messaged via his Kelvin Davis MP Facebook page.

"In the aftermath of what the north has experienced over the last few days, it is important for people to know their elected representatives will put aside electioneering to help the community," says Kelvin Davis.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
