We are going to campaign harder

“It was great news to learn that John Key says I am his recommendation for Epsom. While the Prime Minister is an important person and he is my pick to remain Prime Minister, John Key is just one voter.

“I have been pleased to learn that the Prime Minister is impressed with my campaign and that is one of the reasons he is endorsing my candidacy.

“I intend to demonstrate to all Epsom voters that I will be a hard-working representative of Epsom by continuing to raise local issues that most candidates ignore but are important to voters such as school zoning changes without proper consultation.”
