As his first official act as Pakuranga’s new MP, Simeon Brown took to the streets waving the most important human hoardings of his campaign.
The signs had a simple message for the Pakuranga electorate, ‘Thank you’.
“I’m incredibly grateful and thankful to the people of Pakuranga for putting their trust and support behind me, and electing me to become their next MP,” says Brown.
“It’s been a long, hard campaign with many ups and downs, and I am now looking forward to starting this new role and working hard for Pakuranga.
“I will work tirelessly as an advocate for this electorate and the people who live here,” he says.
Brown says it’s encouraging to see an increase in the candidate vote majority as well as an increase in National’s party vote percentage in Pakuranga during this election.
“This clearly shows that the National Party’s policies and track record resonate with voters in this area, who want to keep New Zealand moving forward,” he says.
“It’s truly a humbling experience to be chosen to represent such an incredible electorate, and I’m looking forward to the challenge of the next three years. I will not take the support of Pakuranga voters for granted, and will work hard to deliver for Pakuranga,” he says.
Brown arrived in Wellington earlier this week to begin his duties as the MP for Pakuranga.
