After around a decade of holding senior office within National, I have enjoyed semi-retirement since I retired as Lower North Island Deputy Regional Chair around 18 months ago. It has been nice to just help out here and there organsing the odd quiz night etc, attending conferences etc.
However all good things must come to an end, and I have accepted the offer to be Mark Blumsky’s Campaign Chair and Manager for the Wellington Central seat. My spare time has just disappeared.
Mark is a great guy, and an ideal candidate with endless energy, ideas and positivity for Wellington. I know I am going to enjoy the campaign, and already have been staggered at the amount of support there is for Mark. In fact co-ordinating all the offers of help is probably my largest task. Those who have been involved in campaigns before know how vital a large volunteer base is.
Bring on the election 🙂
