Positive signs for Hunua

Positive signs for Hunua

The strength of the New Zealand economy and the increasing surplus under the National-led government is being reinforced locally by a positive message from Hunua’s national party candidate Andrew Bayly, as the region prepares for the biggest population boom in its history.

‘Growing Hunua – responsibly’ is the theme behind Andrew’s campaign to ensure his electorate takes full advantage of the benefits of responsible government, and to ensure the region can achieve to its full potential in coming years.

“As Hunua’s next MP, it’s important to me that we make the most of the massive population growth and the boost to our region’s economy that we expect in the next few years,” Andrew says.

“We know our region is going to grow, but we must manage that growth to ensure it is sustainable, and that it is growth that local families are comfortable with.

“We have some of the best agricultural soils in the world, and our dairy farmers and equine industry are world-leaders. We must protect these elite soils and valuable arable lands, and tailor our growth to areas which are well-supported with vital infrastructure such as water, roads, and train services,” Andrew explains.

As a banker, farmer and adventurer, Andrew is passionate about ensuring Hunua can cater for not only the coming growth, but also provide a future for generations to come.

“My wife Tina and I, with our three boys, live in Karaka, and as Hunua MP I will champion the four key elements that our region needs to sustain economic, social and community growth for our residents.

“It’s an ambitious vision, but one which is more than achievable, providing we have the will and the leadership to deliver these elements.

“We must have the infrastructure we deserve.

“We must support our growers, farmers, and the equine industry.

“We must have access to high quality, accessible health services, provided locally.

“And, we must continue to create communities where our independent small business owners, the heart of our rural lifestyle, can grow and flourish.

“Not only can we achieve this, quite simply we must achieve it.

“As your future MP, I am going to draw on my experience and senior level contacts that I have built up over 25 years to get this result for Hunua. At a local and regional level I will redefine the relationship we have with Auckland Council, and nationally I will ensure Hunua’s voice is heard loud and clear in a John Key National Government.

“We have the potential to be among the most vibrant, strong and successful region in New Zealand. I look forward to leading that vision and, with our local residents, making it happen,” Andrew says.
