United Fu­ture an­nounces elec­tion candidates

Central Leader - - News -

United Fu­ture has an­nounced candidates for Ep­som, Maun­gakiekie and Mt Roskill for this year’s gen­eral elec­tion.

Party pres­i­dent Denise Krum is to stand in the Maun­gakiekie elec­torate.

Mrs Krum has been in­volved with United Fu­ture for many years, and says it was al­ways a mat­ter of when, not if, she would run.

“I’ve got two young kids and in pre­vi­ous elec­tions it wasn’t quite the right time.

“I’ve al­ways had the po­lit­i­cal bug so this time I wanted to jump in boots and all.”

Mrs Krum is

the daugh­ter of for­mer Na­tional MP and for­mer Chris­tian Demo­crat founder Graeme Lee.

In the Ep­som elec­torate, Janet Tuck is stand­ing for United Fu­ture for the sec­ond time.

She has worked in both main­stream and spe­cial ed­u­ca­tion and now runs her own ca­reer coun­selling busi­ness.

Mt Roskill’s can­di­date is Neville Power, board mem­ber for the Pasi­fika Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre.

Mr Power mi­grated from Fiji to New Zealand in 1995, and has worked Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity, Com­mu­nity Hous­ing Aotearoa and other hous­ing groups.
