Labour sends condolences to whānau of Dave Hereora


The Labour Party sends its heartfelt condolences to the whānau of former MP Dave Hereora who passed away on Tuesday.

“He was always a constructive and collegial member of the Labour team.

“Dave dedicated his life to the fight for low income workers. Dave will be remembered by his colleagues as a truly principled and kind man.

“Our thoughts are with his wife, tamariki, mokopuna and extended whānau at this sad time,” David Cunliffe says.

A tangi is being held for Dave Hereora’s at his home marae in Tauranga.
