  • Description


    Join an exciting election campaign in Whangārei - we've got lots of things to be done as we are running the most exciting campaign in the country, and are making our whole town sit up and take notice.

    We've got an amazing bunch of volunteers - and are looking to bolster them with more who can give us regular time in exchange for being looked after by some of our supporters who can't volunteer, yet have spare rooms and can provide for people!

    If you want to find yourself deeply immersed in the world of a foreign country, this will be a beautiful crash course on our culture - and you'll play an active role immediately!!
