Clare Curran's Campaign Update - Let's Do This!

Let's do this.

With just six weeks left until the general election, here's an update on the Dunedin South campaign to let you know about what we have been doing. You can keep up with more news and events on my Facebook page, and you can always contact me with any questions or concerns by email, Facebook message, or by phone on 03 455 5299.

Waste Not Want Not:

In the spirit of "waste not want not", we have donated our old hoardings (election signs) to the Dunedin Curtain Bank which collects old curtains, tidies them up and distributes them for free to those who need them to make their homes warmer.

You can watch the video by clicking the image above.

And it made national news: 'Fresh approach' for old Labour election hoardings - pelmets

Let's Do This: Jacinda and Kelvin

You may have already heard that Labour has a new leader and deputy leader: Jacinda Ardern and Kelvin Davis. If you are feeling inspired, you might consider contributing to our local campaign in Dunedin South - find out more information below. Jacinda will be making two visits to Dunedin in the next few weeks . Stay tuned for details.

If you or a family member would like to share your story, you can get in touch via email orFacebook. The waiting lists are horrendous and people are being turned away for surgery. The DHB was forced to apologise at the weekend.

Gordon Campbell: On Our Unreal Optimism About The Economic Impact Of Coronavirus

At this week’s Chinese New Year celebrations, PM Jacinda Ardern was resolutely upbeat that business with China would soon bounce back to normal – better than ever, even - once the coronavirus epidemic has been brought under control. To Ardern, the adversity has only accentuated just how close we are to Beijing Nothing wrong with being upbeat, if it can calm the nerves and turn business sentiment into a self-fulfilling prophecy. The problems begin when the optimism detaches itself from reality.
