Jacinda Ardern is the Deputy Leader for Labour and the Member of Parliament for Mt. Albert.  Jacinda is also the Labour Spokesperson for Justice, Arts, Culture and Heritage, Children and Small Business Associate Spokesperson for Auckland issues.  Jacinda's passion for social justice led her to the Labour Party at just 17 years old and she was elected to Parliament in 2008. Jacinda's experience includes policy development through to managing a large international non-governmental organisation. Before entering Parliament, Jacinda worked for the Better Regulation Executive in the UK Cabinet Office and was also seconded to the Home Office to assist with a review of policing in England and Wales.  In 2007 Jacinda was only the second woman to be elected President of the largest international global political youth organisation – IUSY, which saw her spending time in places ranging from Jordan, Israel and Algeria through to China.
This year’s World Press Photography Exhibition will again be held on Level 6 of the Smith & Caughey’s building in Queen Street and will open the same hours as S&C is open.  We again require volunteers to help ensure our biggest annual fundraiser is a success and you can also purchase bulk tickets if interested – contact Jacqui in the office.
This year’s District 9920 Changeover Breakfast will be on Sunday 2 July from 8am at the Howick Club.  Please join us to farewell District Governor Roger Harvey and welcome in his replacement for the 2017/2018 Rotary year Malini Raghwan, from the Rotary Club of Suva in Fiji.  Cost for this event is $35pp and if you would like to attend, please contact Jacqui in the office.
This year’s Lifewise Big Sleepout on Thursday 6 July will be to raise funds to help the homeless AND YOU ARE INVITED TO JOIN IN! By sleeping rough and sharing your experience for just one night, you can help put an end to homelessness in Auckland for good.  Please sign up and help raise vital funds to house some of our city’s most vulnerable and marginalised citizens and help support youth and young families to turn their lives around.  Last year, over $300,000 were raised towards the Housing First project. Now, we have a small amount of government funding for a demonstration project that has also brought together some of Auckland’s most hardworking social agencies in a collaborative, city-wide, solutions-focused Housing First Auckland initiative.  Being homeless and without a safe place to live, means it is difficult for young people to access education, get employment or support themselves financially. Over time, they risk becoming long-term homeless and cycling through the homelessness services system.  Your support can bring about change and make New Zealand a safe home for our youth.  Register today – Please call Lee on 302 5654. It takes just 3 minutes and all you need are 2 things – a profile photo and your social media links. Any, or all of these will do: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube.  If you experience any issues with the registration, please email bigsleepout@lifewise.org.nz and they will sort it out for you.
The Rotary Club of Parnell extends a warm invitation to all Club members to attend the 2017 Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Graduation Dinner on Friday 7 July.  The venue is Willow Park Christian Camp, 1 Hostel Access Road, Eastern Beach and the cost is $65 per person and the dress code is lounge attire.  If you would like to attend, please contact Jacqui in the office on (09) 486 6010 or email to office@aucklandrotary.org.nz
 
This week we heard from the eternal politician, the Rt Hon Winston Peters, Leader of New Zealand First.  Winston was very clear on what he and his party stands for.  To begin with you can’t have great wealth held by a few and democracy at the same time – is just doesn’t work regardless of what spin you put on it. We are also disenfranchising our youth – a ticking time bomb that will not end well (just look at what is happening overseas), Also, everyone, but in particular youth, need to have a stake in their society, which includes employment and affordable housing, which allows people to care about what happens both now and going forward.  One of the reasons housing and stable employment for the average kiwi has become more difficult to secure is our high immigration numbers.   Whether you like it or not 72,000 new immigrants annually equates to providing housing and employment for another 72,000 people.  Winston isn’t anti-immigration, but believes we should only be allowing 10,000 immigrants in annually and only then if they are very highly skilled.  (The UK’s annual immigration target is 100,000 and they have a population of 65,000,000.)  Many of our working youth in today’s employment environment have contracts which don’t provide regular work and therefore regular income – so how can they put down roots, a problem Winston blames on both National and Labour.  Our growth is based on consumption and mass-immigration which is not sustainable long-term and needs to stop.   What kiwis have taken for granted for many years is rapidly disappearing due to the magnitude of the short-sightedness of our politicians – you only have to look around the world to see why we need to start changing things now and Winston is very clear on what needs to happen going forward, should he again hold political power after the elections later this year.
