"Veronique, with her very strong background in both small business management, on the one hand, and in social work, on the other, is an ideal candidate to explain the benefits of giving your party vote to Progressive this year," Matt Robson said.

"Progressive candidates are campaigning for your party vote as your pro-economic development and anti-drugs insurance policy," he said.
