Have you seen my latest campaign video? I've had a really great response to it so far. You can check it out here and if you like it, please share it! It's a quick 90 second pitch for why I'm asking for your support to be re-elected as the MP for Hutt South. I also released an open letter to the Hutt yesterday - which is a longer message about what I've been working on over the past three years, what I enjoy most about being an MP, and what you can expect from me if I'm re-elected. Again I've had some lovely feedback on it, so please share it around if you agree.
There are just eight days left and it's fair to say I am pretty exhausted - we've been doing a lot of leafleting, letter deliveries, handing out flyers at train stations, phone-calling, door-knocking, human hoardings, and more! Hopefully you have seen my team and me out and about in the Hutt. If not, watch out for us in coming days. If you're keen to help out, then please let me know! In particular over the next week we need people to scrutineer in polling booths (everything is supplied for you and it's super easy) both during the week and on election day itself.

Here's week four of my Campaign Diary for Newsroom - I've really enjoyed writing these as the campaign goes on, and hopefully it gives you a bit of an insight into what it's like "on the trail!".
While the campaign enters its final stages - ordinary constituency work carries on too of course, and it's been fun getting around the community to things like the Enliven Woburn Home Wearable Arts show, the Wainuiomata Croquet Club Opening Day, and visiting the Gurudwara Sahib in Naenae. Also, have you lost a teddy in Petone? (See below).
Have a great Friday and enjoy the weekend. And make sure you vote!
