David Cunliffe’s community activities

David
CUNLIFFE
Labour Leader

21September 2013 MEDIA STATEMENT
David Cunliffe’s community activities

Some questions have been raised by media in relation to the community activities section of David Cunliffe’s curriculum vitae.

David Cunliffe was a member of the PSA from 1987-1990 when he worked for MFAT. During part of this time he served as a PSA delegate and co-convenor.

Mr Cunliffe was a member of Waitakere Forest & Bird in his early time as an MP. That membership has since lapsed and has not been represented as a current activity.

Some confusion has arisen over Mr Cunliffe’s voluntary work for church charity organisations. He volunteered as a budget advisor for the Wellington Inner City Ministry, which was a co-operative venture involving St Peter’s Church on Willis Street, when he attended the church during the 1987-1990 period.

David Cunliffe has volunteered delivering food parcels to the Auckland City Mission as a member of St Matthew’s in the City. He has not volunteered directly for Auckland City Mission.
