Dalziel Talks Youth Issues With 'Shore Youth'

New Zealand Labour Party – Shore Youth Branch

Lianne Dalziel Talks Youth Issues With 'Shore Youth'

Lianne Dalziel, Labour Cabinet Minister and party spokesperson for Youth Affairs will be on Auckland's North Shore next week. At a public meeting with the youth of the Shore, Ms Dalziel will be illustrating how Labour policies are of benefit to youth and addressing the issue of low Election Day turnout among young voters.

"This meeting is the first of its kind on the Shore. It's an exciting opportunity for the Shore's youth to raise issues important to young people" says Gina Porter, Chair of Labour's 'Shore Youth' Branch.

The Shore Youth Branch was recently formed to build better youth participation in the political process on the North Shore and to make a positive contribution to youth policy at both the national and local level. But the most important goal is to put a bit of fun into politics! "This meeting is just the beginning" Gina Porter said.

Lianne Dalziel will be at the Rose Centre in Belmont from 1:30 - 2:30pm on Friday July 12th and welcomes all interested parties.
