Waitaki MP Jacqui Dean says it's game on for this year's election.
"Just after midnight on Saturday night - July 22, in the pouring rain, my staffers and I put up my first billboard for this year’s general election.
"I am so excited and proud to be your candidate for the National Party in the Waitaki electorate and I assure you I will be giving it my all.
"For the past decade, I have demonstrated my commitment and passion to serve you all in this beautiful part of the country.
"I feel humbled and proud to be nominated to be your MP and if re-elected look forward to continuing to work hard to represent you all with the highest level of integrity.
I am proud and humbled to be campaigning alongside Prime Minister Bill English and the rest of the National Party and look forward to putting up the good fight for you all over the coming months.
