#LoveManurewa is a new party not connected with any other political party. We will turn up, do the mahi and ask the hard questions. We will listen and be accountable to the community.

Manurewa is the fifth largest local board in Auckland, but is funded less than almost all other boards. #LoveManurewa will continue to fight for equity. We will hold the council to account on Manurewa’s fair share of funding for clean streets, facilities, sports fields, public transport and better infrastructure.

We are grateful for the support from our community and endorsements from Councillor Angela Dalton, Board Member Ken Penney, and Alan Johnson former Wiri Trust Trustee.

Vote all eight candidates for the Manurewa Local Board and all six for the Wiri Licensing Trust. Vote Angela Dalton for Ward Councillor. Thank you for your support. #LoveManurewa
