The National Party has announced that Simeon Brown will be its candidate for the Manurewa electorate at the 2014 General Election.
Mr Brown was selected at a meeting of local party members last night.
“I know Simeon will devote himself to championing National’s plan for more jobs, better public services in health and education, and safer communities,” says Northern Regional Chair Andrew Hunt.
“I would also like to thank Dr Cam Calder for his dedication to Manurewa as a list MP in the area over the past six years.”
Mr Brown says he was honoured to be chosen and would be running a strong campaign.
“John Key’s National-led Government has been working for Manurewa’s families after years of neglect by Labour.”
“We’re building a stronger economy that supports higher incomes and delivers extra support for our communities in a way that is effective and affordable. I’m looking forward to being Manurewa’s strong local voice for National at the election.”
