Tony Milne has been selected as Labour's candidate for
Christchurch Central at this year's general election.
Mr Milne was selected from a field of three candidates. The
32-year-old is currently national manager of public health at
the Problem Gambling Foundation.
"We have an amazing opportunity to re-imagine Christchurch,
and I want to be at the heart of that," he said.
"To get there we have many challenges to overcome. I will be
standing up for the urgent issues facing Christchurch Central
now, such as housing shortages, EQC roadblocks and the need
for good jobs and higher incomes."
Party president Moira Coatsworth said members and supporters
were determined to bring the seat back to Labour.
"The electorate faces strong earthquake recovery challenges
and needs a powerful voice in Parliament."
