A reader highlighted this story from July:
Mr Little joined the union as a lawyer in 1992 and was elected unopposed as national secretary in 2000.
His family lived in Wellington now, and although he planned to spend five days a week in New Plymouth campaigning, he would not move them there until he won the seat.
Would he move if he lost in the seat but was elected as a list MP?
“Not sure about that. I will gauge that closer to the time.”
Andrew is all but guaranteed to be an MP after the election. He could easily pledge to remain in New Plymouth. I don’t think locals will be overly impressed by someone who won’t commit to the region.
I suspect the reason Andrew won’t commit to New Plymouth, is because he will want to stand in Rongotai if there is a by-election after the general election.Tags: Andrew Little, New Plymouth
