Many Māori MPs are sick of seeing our community going backwards. That’s why I’m in Labour and that’s why I am working so hard to get every Party vote for Labour and win every Māori electorate.
If Māori back Labour, then Labour will back Māori.
Māori TVs latest political poll showed that Labour had an overall vote on the Maori Roll of 46.5%, when you compare that to the Maori Roll support for Labour last election, Jacinda has made our support jump up 6 points.
That kind of support on election day will see a historically unprecedented number of Māori enter Parliament under the Labour banner and begin working immediately to see our communities get the support they desperately require.
Our housing policy will see over 20 000 Māori housed in new housing, our health policy will ensure our people don’t pay more than $8 to see the doctor and only $2 for teenagers and our employment policy will see community organisations able to tap into the talent of their local young people for jobs.
We refuse to pretend that Māori don’t have a say in our water and we commit to building 100 000 affordable houses.
Apathy is easy to feed when we have been so disappointed by the political leadership of the last 9 years, but Jacinda alongside Kelvin is the best hope for all New Zealanders to see a country that actually lives up to our expectations rather than lowers them.
The election is next month.
