As we look towards Christmas & the end of 2018, I’d like to say a quick thanks.
I have really enjoyed my first full year as your MP. It has been a privilege to meet so many of you – for example, at meetings I’ve hosted, community events, or on an individual basis. I look forward to more of this in 2019. Please feel free to contact my office to share your thoughts on priorities for our area, or to seek assistance with challenges you’re having (or take 2-3 minutes to complete a survey at national.org.nz/haveyoursay).
It’s December, embrace the madness of the season – shopping chaos, Christmas carols on repeat & an overindulgence in festive food. Soak it up & smile, it should be a happy time of year!
The cost of living has been increasing under this government, which has presented challenges for many. But in the spirit of the season, remember that it’s who we have, not what we have, that makes this time of year special.
I hope you’re able to have a wonderful Christmas & take some time to relax with friends & family.
Tim van de Molen MP
