Thank You Waimakariri
Well we did it! On Sept. 20th we once again painted the Waimakariri electorate blue. We retained the electorate as a National held seat and thanks to the Waimakariri voters I am the new Member of Parliament for Waimakariri.
Following election day I joined my fellow new National Party MP’s in Wellington for our first National Party caucus of The 51st Parliament.
A big thank you to all members, supporters, friends and family who contributed to a very successful campaign. I am honoured and privileged to represent the Waimakariri electorate. To all those who delivered leaflets, knocked on doors, made phone calls, waved signs on the side of the motorway, put up hoarding signs throughout the electorate, donated financially, attended street corner meetings and most importantly shared a laugh along the way, can I say that I am humbled by all your support. Quite simply I could not have achieved such a big win without all your support. Going forward I will need a team around me, you are my team, I look forward to working with you over the coming three years so that the Waimakariri can move ahead with Matt!
