Tuki Tuki wants a truly local constituency MP

National’s Larry White expected to win Tuki Tuki

“National has identified the need for a truly local MP for the Tuki Tuki seat. Voters want someone who has a passion for Hawke’s Bay. Our candidate, Larry White lives in the electorate, grew up here, farms here. He has a passion to represent Hastings and Hawke’s Bay. Tuki Tuki is his home."

“National Party MPs have been blitzing the Tuki Tuki electorate because we believe that Larry White is a winning candidate. Last time National won the Party vote. I believe that this time Larry White will win the constituency as well,” said National Party MP, Annabel Young, today. In the latest visit, MPs Eric Roy, Joy Quigley, Alec Neill and Annabel Young spent 2 days in Hawke’s Bay, speaking at meetings and delivering leaflets. “Even Grey Power welcomed the idea of a truly local constituency MP.”

“The Labour Party candidate is a Wellington unionist with nothing to offer the people of Hastings, Havelock North and Central Hawke’s Bay.”
