Wellington Central a contest for the best local MP
"The greatest compliment another party can pay an MP is to acknowledge they are doing an effective job as local MP.
"I have been delighted with the support I am getting not only from National but also Labour voters who are saying they are voting for me as the most effective local MP.
"For Wellington Central there are important electorate issues like Wellington hospital, the threat to cut Wellington police numbers and the ongoing need for protection of the Town Belt which I have effectively championed.
"National's action has turned Wellington Central into a choice as to who is the best local MP - a choice that my track record indicates I will win," Mr Prebble said.
