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. I spoke to Tess Trotter from the Curtain Bank about
how they can use our signs to make cold homes in our city
warmer - by recycling them into window pelmets. You
can watch the video by clicking the image above. And
it made national news:
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.
Horror at the Southern DHB:
I have been hearing your stories for weeks about the problems you've been experiencing with the SDHB. 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.
Dunedin South Volunteers:
Our volunteers have been hard at work making phone calls and doorknocking right across the Dunedin South Electorate. It's a great team atmosphere, so if you think you would like to sign up to change the government in September you can hit the button below to sign up.
