Subject: Well done over 55,000! Now over 60,000!
Hi everyone, just a quick update. Its great news that the govt has decided not to proceed with urgency!
I want to thank everyone for their efforts in collecting over the weekend and sending in the totals. No need to send any mire emails. I am sorry it is going to take a little time for me to work through replies to some of the questions you asked. From now on though just post them all direct to Tauranga.
The press conference went well and we had good coverage on the news.
Now the important day is tomorrow to let everyone know that the petitions are in the Herald, Dominion Post, Christchurch Press and Otago Daily Times.
Ring talk back radio if you can and ask everyone to get them from the paper and sign up everyone at their work or in their street.
You are all fantastic,
It’s a pleasure working with you.
PS the team in Helensville organised a great debate for me tonight with Sue Bradford. Boy did I enjoy that. It was like being back in the chamber.
