National’s candidate for Mana at the 2017 General Election will be Euon Murrell.
Mr Murrell is proud to be a longstanding local resident in the Mana electorate. He has significant experience in business and real estate, currently working as the Principal of Esplanade Reality in Paremata. He formerly served on the Porirua City Council between 2003-2016 and was Deputy Mayor between 2003-2007.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to be selected by National as it’s Mana candidate for the upcoming General Election,” Mr Murrell says.
“This area is one I’m proud to be a part of and have longstanding ties too. Our communities are getting ahead under National, and I will be running a strong campaign on the issues that matter locally.
“The Mana electorate will only continue to prosper if we have a National-led Government that is focused on growing the economy to create more jobs and lift wages for our families.
“This gives the Government choices so we can invest in vital infrastructure needed for future growth, like improving schools and building safer roads, and supporting families who need the most help to adapt to change.
“Bill English and his united team will build on the successes of the last few years, with a clear and strong plan to make Kiwis better off at work and at home, with the means to achieve it.”
