United Future announces election candidates
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.
