The local paper has handed out some campaign awards.
Deborah Russell, Labour. Faced with the unenviable task of taking on National’s Ian McKelvie in Rangitikei Russell has thrown everything at the campaign. She’s been all over the vast electorate with a small team of volunteers giving it everything. Whether that will translate into a seat in Parliament is uncertain, and probably unlikely, but Labour should reward her in 2017 for her efforts with an easier route to Wellington.
Nice to see Iain Lees-Galloway and Adrian Rurawhe getting awards and mentions too.
