Stay safe on the roads this summer
The days are longer, the weather is warmer, kids are on the beach, sausages are on the barbecue, and cricket is on the TV. All of these are tell-tale signs that a classic Bay of Plenty summer is settling in.
As the year ends, I want to thank the community for the support, guidance, and friendship you have offered me in 2018.
My family and I wish you a very Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year, and an enjoyable break. I’m looking forward to some much-needed rest and recreation, connecting with friends and family, and recharging the batteries for another big year ahead — as I’m sure we all are.
Please stay safe on our roads. We will undoubtedly have an influx of visitors here to enjoy this region’s sun, sand and surf — which means traffic will be up, boats will be towed and gaps will be tight. Let’s not take any risks and make sure everyone gets home to their families.
As we enjoy the summer remember not everyone is able to take this time off as many of us do — so to the police, doctors, nurses, store owners, petrol attendants and anyone else who keeps us safe, fed and moving during the break — I offer a sincere and heartfelt thank you.
I’ll see you all in 2019. I hope it brings you nothing but health, wealth, love and happiness.
— Todd Muller MP for Bay of Plenty
