10 May 2019

A very brief Ad Lib from me this week as I attend to pressing work in my day job. It’s a local government election year and things are really heating up. Another thing that’s heating up is our upcoming re-launch.

I have been fortunate to be involved in this transformational project over the past year and a half. Since the 2017 election, as a three-time candidate, past ACT board member, Deputy Leader, and now Vice-President, we’ve conducted a survey and met with members up and down the country, had staff and volunteer workshops, board workshops, and are now GO to relaunch.
There’s been a small team dedicated to making sure this event is one not to be missed. It will be unlike any other ACT conference you’ve ever attended (or not attended). 
It’s a ticketed event and numbers are limited, so you can’t just rock up. Book your ticket(s) now to ensure your place, and be part of this exciting moment in ACT history.

A neat little quiz from a political website which aggregates polls, tracks the popularity of New Zealand politicians on social media, and offers a custom political values test designed for Kiwis.
Try it, it’s still under development and the creator welcomes constructive suggestions for improvements –
I happened to hear this live while driving between Auckland and Warkworth earlier this week. I nearly ran off the road! Listen and enjoy, from Ryan Bridge on Magic Talk.


Would you like to meet up in person? I’m planning a get-together at St Heliers in Auckland on Saturday 18 May from 4.00 – 5.45 pm for anyone interested. 

It’s called ‘Beach, bubbles and banter with Beth Houlbrooke’ at the wonderful La Vista Mediterranean restaurant. Located on Tamaki Drive, over-looking the beautiful St Heliers beach. Numbers are limited so RSVP is essential, but feel free to bring a +1. Cash bar available. Hosted by Stephen Berry, Auckland Central South Board Member.
