Labour leader Andrew Little is to open a new Labour Party office in Auckland and re-deploy his chief of staff Matt McCarten as Labour prepares for battle in 2017.
Little said Labour’s new office in Auckland would open by the end of September and McCarten had offered to head it.
It was part of the planning for election year, including how to target the voter-rich Auckland.
McCarten had volunteered to take on the role and was not being pushed.
“He wanted to do it. His strength is in the networks and setting up programmes and places for me to go to and getting stuff organised. And that is what I need.”
Was Andrew Little a teacher once?

Gold star to Matthew McCarten for participating in politics! Read more »
