I'm hoping to stand for parliament

I've always been a supporter of Peter Dunne. He is my MP and has done great things for the electorate in Ohariu. So when I read this I was interested:
Expressions of interest are sought from interested UnitedFuture members and supporters for selection as Parliamentary candidates for the General Election. Please contact outlining whether you wish to be considered for both an electorate and a place on the party list, or for an electorate or list position only. Expressions of interest should be submitted by 15 April.

I think it would be good experience standing for Parliament. Having worked at Parliament, I know a bit about the place.I have no doubt that Peter Dunne will retain his seat after the election - probably with an increased majority - and so it is the party vote that will determine how many seats the party gets.

So I expressed my interest earlier this week. I encourage people to join UnitedFuture - its only $5.00

Dave - I am sure you would be very useful as an MP - but given the date I think we will not be experiencing the benefit of your wisdom in Parliament anytime soon!!
