My heartiest congratulations to Paul, a really nice guy I have had the fortune of meeting who is to become New Zealand’s newest Member of Parliament with the departure of Dr Jackie Blue.
Paul stood in the Wellington Central electorate, which was won by the Deputy Leader of the Opposition. As the home of NZs public service Wellington Central is a very hard seat for the right to win.
The funniest moment was googling Paul this afternoon and I found his Wikipedia page which already mentions his imminent appointment!
Once again, well done Paul, you have started a journey many of us only dream of….
