Tony Milne selected as Labour’s Christchurch Central candidate


Labour Party President Moira Coatsworth has announced that Tony Milne will be Labour’s candidate for Christchurch Central at the 2014 General Election. He was selected from a field of three candidates.
Moira Coatsworth said today:


“Christchurch Central has a strong Labour organisation, and our members and supporters are determined to bring the seat back to Labour. The electorate faces strong earthquake recovery challenges and needs a powerful voice in Parliament".


"Christchurch Central has a long and proud Labour history. Previous MPs include a Labour Prime Minister and the current Mayor of Christchurch. Our selection process has given us a very committed, talented and impressive candidate to continue that strong tradition."


Tony Milne said today:

"We have an amazing opportunity to re-imagine Christchurch, and I want to be at the heart of that.

"To get there we have many challenges to overcome. I will be standing up for the urgent issues facing Christchurch Central now, such as housing shortages, EQC roadblocks and the need for good jobs and higher incomes".
