Subject: You are invited – Labour leadership consultation meeting


All Auckland and Northland based Labour Party members are invited to meet, listen to and question candidates for the Labour Party leadership before the big caucus leadership vote on Dec 13th.

The meeting details are:

Sunday, 11 December, 2.30pm-4.30pm: Otahuhu Town Hall, 10 High St Otahuhu

A couple of important things about the meeting:

The meetings are open to current financial members of the Labour Party only.

Unfinancial members can renew their membership at the door or you can sort that out right now at

Labour supporters can become a member of the Labour party prior to the event by joiningat or they can join at the door on the day. The membership fee for waged individuals is $15 per year.

There will be no formal voting or straw polls at the meeting but you should let the Auckland and Northland based MPs know what you think about the candidates to help them inform their decision.

This is an exciting and important event for Labour members ? I hope to see you all there. If you have any queries about the event hit reply to this email.
