I would like to thank the 16,156 people who voted for me in the Invercargill electorate.  Your votes are appreciated and I will continue to work hard for you and our city.  There is still a lot of work to do and I have a number of projects already under way which I want to see through.

New Zealand has made a choice and the National Party has a clear plan for the country through the next three years – economic growth, jobs, and looking after our people are major parts of that plan.

Thanks again and I am honoured to be your MP in the best electorate in New Zealand.
