Dunedin is a vibrant town and I like to report on the people and issues I encounter along the way. I do this in many ways including on the blog on the front page of this website and also via The Dunedin North Informer which is usually published five times a year. The Informer is a short round-up of news and views from the MP’s desk. Here are back issues for those who’ve missed them, or any who fancy a second read. Special thanks to all who’ve hosted a visit by the MP, delivered The Informer to letterboxes, or contributed to the newsletter in other ways.
