Green Party selects David Moorhouse for Christchurch East

The Green Party has today announced David Moorhouse as its candidate for the Christchurch East by-election.

David was the Green Party candidate for Christchurch Central in 2011 and is a software developer in community healthcare.

“This by-election is an opportunity for the Green Party and for David to put to voters our vision for the rebuild of Christchurch,” said Green Party Co-leader Metiria Turei.

“It is critical that there is a Green electorate MP at the rebuild table strongly advocating for the significant and very serious concerns of Christchurch East residents.

“The Greens and David will be campaigning for a Green Rebuild of Christchurch with sustainability and resilience at the forefront, and a fair deal for Christchurch East residents,” said Mrs Turei.

“As a Christchurch resident with long ties to the east, I believe that I offer a strong and empathetic voice for Christchurch East voters” said Green Party Christchurch East candidate David Moorhouse.

“I know first-hand and through friends and family what the impact of the earthquake has been and I commit to supporting local residents with insurance issues and dealing with EQC.

“Having been a business owner, I’m also aware of the opportunities of the rebuild and the importance of seizing and maximising these opportunities for a prosperous rebuild for Christchurch East residents.

“I believe I am the best candidate for the role, and I’m urging Christchurch East residents to give me their vote in this by-election.” said Mr Moorhouse.

Werewolf: John Pilger, And Making War On China

In July, the New Zealand Defence Force is scheduled to join the latest round of Talisman Sabre, a huge training exercise that Australia carries out biennially in conjunction with all four arms of the US military.

Last time around in 2015, New Zealand contributed 650 personnel, 45 vehicles and two of our $NZ771 million dollar fleet of NH90 helicopters to this regional war game.

What’s weird is that Talisman Sabre is actually a rehearsal for an assault on China and its ability to defend itself. More>>
