NZ First MP hopes to make his mark in new electorate


Made with the support of NZ On Air 



After "a lot of angst", New Zealand First list MP Mark Patterson will stand in the Taieri electorate in September’s general election.

The Lawrence farmer stood in Clutha-Southland in 2017, the first time NZ First had fielded a candidate in the electorate since 2005.

Boundary changes meant he now lived in the Taieri seat and Patterson said after much thought he had decided to stand in that electorate.

It's going to take big balls and a brass neck to get any voters to want to trust NZF ever again. Dumping on their voter base seems to be SOP for these guys.
