MANA anounces its general seat candidates in Tamaki

MANA anounces its general seat candidates in Tamaki
Hone Harawira, MANA Leader and MP for Te Tai Tokerau
Monday 14 July 2014

MANA is pleased to announce its general seat candidates in Tamaki for the 2014 election.

“We have 10 seasoned community campaigners keen to bring MANA’s full set of big, bold policies to the election campaign,” says MANA Leader and MP for Te Tai Tokerau, Hone Harawira.

“This is a great crew and I’m proud to stand with them for MANA. They know they won’t win these seats, but they’re committed to fight for the Internet MANA party vote to get more MANA people into parliament”, said Harawira.

“All our team have grass roots experience helping communities in low incomes areas fight for a better deal”.

“Roger Fowler for example led last year’s hugely successful ROCC (Respect our Community Campaign) which stopped the government’s big tarseal highway through Mangere, dead in its tracks”.

“John Minto is often described as a veteran campaigner but he’s got more energy than some other parties have in their entire caucus”.

“We have three Pasifika candidates – James Papali’i, Dr Siteleki Finau and Makelesi Ngata who will highlight MANA’s strong Pasifika-focused policies. MANA won’t be taking Pasifika votes for granted as has happened for too long”.

“Three of our MANA team are women activists in the Glen Innes housing struggle – Lisa Gibson, Yvonne Dainty and Makelesi Ngata. These candidates will bring to the campaign their first hand knowledge of the battles state house tenants face across the country”.

Joe Carolan from Unite Union and Socialist Aotearoa is a well known activist as is Pat O’Dea who stood for MANA in Epsom in the last election. Pat O’Dea explained then that he wouldn’t know how to represent rich people but stood to highlight the destructive impact of ACT policies which continue to crush low-income families.

Mana Tamaki rohe chairperson Joe Trinder rounds out the team bringing youthful vigour and enthusiasm.

MANA will rock this election...

Our Tamaki general seat team – in alphabetical order:
Joe Carolan – Mt Albert
Yvonne Dainty – Manurewa
Dr Sitaleki Finau – Maungakiekie
Roger Fowler – Papakura
Lisa Gibson – Tamaki
John Minto – Mt Roskill
Makelesi Ngata – Upper Harbour
Pat O’Dea – Epsom
James Papali'i – Mangere
Joe Trinder – Manukau East
