My values are Labour values.

I want to help build a stronger, more caring society. I am passionate about Dunedin, and I bring considerable energy and wide experience to the task of representing this electorate.

National’s Disdain for Dunedin

The National Party illustrates its contempt again and again. Government jobs are taken out of Dunedin.  Wellington bureaucracy continues to grow.  The recent proposal to shut the doors of Dunedin’s immigration office is but one example.

National pours billions into roads – North of Christchurch. Contracts that should be filled in Dunedin are going offshore.  Rail wagons built in Dunedin under a Labour Government are now built less-well in China.

Another recent case of ideological madness is the decision to exclude Presbyterian Support Otago (PSO) from the future provision of home support services. I’ve written about it in an article published today entitled: Uncaring attitude to care providers.

The Government seems ideologically wedded to imposed cookie-cutter solutions at the expense of local service providers. Perhaps Tony Ryall’s fingerprints will be lifted off the DHB process documents when they eventually become public.
