Whangarei By Election - Candidate Targetted

Whangarei By Election - Candidate Targetted


My name is Huhana Lyndon and I am standing in the Whangarei District Council By Election.

I have a strong campaign in the local community with a large number of billboards, active social media campaign and presence in local events and activities. My door knocking started this weekend and I am attending the organised meet the candidates events.

The Denby Ward includes Tikipunga, Kamo, Whau Valley, Otangarei and parts of Kensington. Following the promotion to enroll in the General Election, Whangarei now has 94.88% registered voters, with 14,339 registered voters in the Denby Ward (11,670 general, 2,669 Maori roll).

In just under two weeks I have had 9 billboards damaged/ destroyed, with four today in the Kamo area. While my billboards continue to get damaged others remain untouched next door. I will now be reporting this matter to the Whangarei Police as I feel I am being targetted by those who seek to undermine my campaign to represent the Denby Ward Community.

I am an active advocate in the community. I'm raised in the Denby Ward and chose to live with my daughters here too. I have many years of experience working in Whangarei District Council processes and am well versed in the machinery of local government. I am young, female and Maori - and appear to be the only one suffering from this level of ongoing vandalism.

I stand for:

• Increased equity of spend for Denby Ward
• Great investment in grassroots initiatives
• Sustainable management of council debt
• Healthy, vibrant and thriving communities
• A child youth friendly city
• Greater focus on pensioner services
There is so much opportunity for Denby to grow, we need to be bold in our outlook, courageous in our thinking and have fierce determination. A vote for me is a vote for a strong passionate advocate for our community.

I have a post on my FB page highlighting the ongoing vandalism. You can follow my campaign here: https://www.facebook.com/HuhanaLyndon/

Gordon Campbell: On Our Military Roles In Iraq & Afghanistan

The politics of the deployment extension have degenerated into a slanging match about whether the previous National government was right or wrong to make the initial commitment to Iraq – and whether the extension is a responsible thing given our joint training role in Iraq with Australia, or is hypocritical in the light of prior statements made by a previous Labour leader etc. etc. etc.

As usual, the benefit – or otherwise – of our military presence to the people on the receiving end has barely had a look in. More>>
