Tamaki Newsletter Update—April 2020

Can I start by thanking everyone for their efforts so far as we have worked through four weeks of lock down. Everyone has played their part to date and it is appreciated. We must certainly acknowledge the decisions made but it is also the day-to-day actions of each and every one of us that has made the difference. May I extend my sympathies to the families who have lost loved ones. As I write, 13 people have died with Covid-19. My thoughts are also with those with the virus and in particular, the 12-or-so currently in hospital. We wish them all a speedy recovery.

As I write we are approaching two weeks into the national lockdown during COVID-19 alert level four and hopefully by now we are all starting to settle into our new rhythms.

We are currently living in an extraordinary time. The rapid spread of COVID-19—often known as coronavirus—has been unprecedented, affecting every aspect of our lives. Even in New Zealand, where we have been relatively sheltered from the rest of the world, we are feeling the effects on every level, including on a personal level.

With Parliament well underway, I have been back to splitting my time between Wellington and Auckland. While it has been a busy time, it has also been very interesting, with lots happening in the electorate and in Parliament.

As I wrote in my last newsletter, no election date had been set. A few hours after sending, the Prime Minister finally provided us a date—Saturday 19 September. It is good to finally have the date and now focus on winning the election in a few short months.
