Former New Market Business Association Chief Executive, Councillor, local government official and long-time friend of Indian Newslink Cameron Brewer is the National Party candidate for Upper Harbour in the general election to be held next year.

Delegates of the Party at the electorate selected Mr Brewer at their meeting this evening.

He said that it was a thrilling moment.

Issues of concern

“Upper Harbour is growing fast as more young families choose to make it their home. The issues they face are the ones that I will focus on relentlessly, particularly addressing the cost-of-living crisis and cracking down on the crime we’re seeing across the electorate,” he said.

According to Mr Brewer, families in Upper Harbour are being buffeted by skyrocketing mortgage repayments or rents and are confronted by the realities of economic mismanagement of the Labour Party every time they fill up the trolley or the gas tank.

“National’s plan to address the cost-of-living crisis will restore discipline to government spending, provide tax relief to hardworking Kiwis and back our businesses to get ahead, instead of saddling them with higher costs,” he said.

Mr Brewer said that he will advocate for clear plans for Upper Harbour on vital issues including transport, infrastructure and core services.

“Neither the National Party nor I will prioritise a failed light rail scheme down Dominion Road at the expense of the rest of Auckland. I have spent most of my career fighting and delivering for Aucklanders and will do exactly that for Upper Harbour if I earn the right to be their new MP as part of Chris Luxon’s energised National team,” he said.
