There are now just a few weeks until the by-election in Northland. Our candidate Willow-Jean Prime is hardworking, honest and local.
She’d be a great MP for Northland, and would offer a stark contrast to the neglect the area has suffered under National. I know Willow-Jean, and the more people she meets, the better her chances are of winning on March 28.
The trouble is, Northland’s a large, rural electorate, so it’s going to be hard for Willow-Jean to get out and meet everyone in the area before polling day.
But we have a plan. We’ve designed a leaflet outlining who Willow-Jean is, and what her plans for Northland are.
We’d like to deliver one to every household in Northland – that’s around 20,000 houses.
Our team of volunteers can get out and deliver the leaflets to about half of those houses. But because Northland is such a large electorate, some areas are too remote for our volunteers to get to. So to get leaflets to those houses we’ll have to use NZ Post – and that costs money.
Each leaflet will cost about $1 to send – the price of the stamp, envelope and printing the leaflet. And thanks to donations from people like you, we can already send about 3,000 of these letters.
But to make sure everyone in Northland knows they have a real choice this election, we need to raise thousands more.
Will you chip in and sponsor leaflets to deliver to households in Northland?
Chip in $10 to sponsor 10 households’ leaflets
Chip in $25 to sponsor 25 households’ leaflets
Chip in $50 to sponsor 50 households’ leaflets
Chip in $100 to sponsor 100 households’ leaflets
Chip in another amount
It’s going to be hard to win in Northland. National had a large majority in the last election, and the seat’s been held by them for decades. But together, we can make sure Northlanders know they have a choice on March 28 when they head to the ballot box.
MP for Te Tai Tokerau
Maybe Kelvin could ask Cameron Slater and David Farrar for a donation seeing as they donated to him last election?
It just seems churlish to ask Laila for money when Kelvin worked with Key, Winston Peters, Maori Party, John Key, Cameron Slater and David Farrar to deny her entry into Parliament.
Labour’s email list should probably get updated.
